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.

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.
