Sun Lakes Camera Club (SLCC) is the largest camera club in the Southeast Valley. Our members share an interest in photography that reaches beyond the casual snapshot. We appreciate the power and beauty of a great photo and share tips and constructive critiques to improve our images. We welcome all shooting styles and levels of experience.

2018-2019 Rotating Subjects and Techniques and 2019-2020 Rotating Subjects and Techniques have been released by Wayne Divoky, our Competition Chair.
October's Competition Subjects are:
Rotating Subject: Photo Travel. A Photo Travel image expresses the characteristic features or culture of a land as they are found naturally. There are no geographic limitations. Close up pictures of people or objects must include features that provide information about the environment or context. The image may be either color or monochrome.
Special Techniques: Still Life. A photo depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, and so on). No humans or live animals can be present in the image. The image may be either color or monochrome.
The Next General Meeting will be in the Ceramics room in Cottonwood at 6:30 pm on October 4.
Per our Vice President, Rob Baldwin: "Agenda is normal club business items, and then the guest speaker. Our speaker is Steve Wright from CrisCam in Chandler. His presentation will cover how to maintain your camera in top shape. Steve's talk will cover routine items to do yourself, items that should be performed by an authorized brand representative, as well as how to know when major maintenance is necessary. The format will be primarily Q&A, so bring your questions for this terrific presentation applying to all photographers and equipment types."
Our End of the Year Dinner gave us the opportunity to to present to John Beamer, our friend, mentor and past President a Lifetime Honorary Membership. Congratulations John for all that you have given to the camera club over the years!
