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.

Sun Lakes Camera Club Website. As of May 12,2017 our new website is being hosted by Visual Pursuits, which is also our Competition Manager. Unlike the old website, the new website has new features that can be for the general public or for members only, such as a members section, forums, specific galleries. We are encouraging all members, if you have not already done so, to contact Wayne Divoky and register as a Sun Lakes Camera Club Member. It is just a user name (YourName) and password - easy. It also makes our Treasurer's job much easier than having to manage a large Excel spreadsheet. And who does not want to make Karen's job easier? Please take a moment to register. We are trying to have this done before the Fall meetings begin. Here is a copy of Burt's email regarding the new website.
