The Olympia Camera Club is for anyone who loves photography.  It is our goal to help others 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, but you’ll also have opportunities to grow and learn from club members who have more advanced skills. We serve Thurston County, Washington and the surrounding areas.


In-person Meetings – We are slowing getting back to meeting in person for some of our meetings.  We will be holding our Practical Photography meetings as Hybrid meetings – both in person and on Zoom – on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.  Check the calendar for details.

We have entered into a partnership with the Olympic Peaks Camera Club of Sequim to share guest speakers.  For the remainder of the year our General Meetings will be via Zoom on the 3rd Thursday of each month using the OPCC Zoom link.  The meetings will be posted to our calendar and you can find the OPCC Zoom link in our Members Only Area.
