Capital High School
Over the last few months we have been extremely fortunate to visit three very diverse parts of the world through the lenses of three of our members. I am sure that I am not the only one that wanted to immediately book flights to China, Africa and Iceland for a once in a lifetime epic photo expedition. The problem with once in a lifetime epic photo expeditions though is that they generally require an epic amount of planning and logistics.
For our Feb. General Meeting our own Chuck Paeth will present a program titled “Choosing and preparing for your African Safari – picking the right one and what to take.” Chuck will cover where and when to go, finding the safari that matches your goals and things you need to prepare for before the trip. He will also cover what types of camera and personal gear to take with you on your once in a lifetime trip.
The purpose of the Olympia Camera Club is to learn how to be better photographers through sharing, teaching, guest speakers, and field trips.
Our club includes photographers of different skill levels and with varied interests. You will enjoy the camaraderie of interacting with those at your own skill level or with similar interests. You’ll also have opportunities to grow and learn from club members who have more advanced skills.
We have three regular meetings each month to meet varied interests and skill levels. Members are also invited to attend monthly field trips and other club events. Take a look at our Calendar to see what’s coming up in the near future.
You are invited to attend any and all of our meetings. See the calendar for details.
The Olympia Camera Club is a member of the Northwest Council of Camera Clubs (NWCCC) and the Photographic Society of America (PSA).
