Tri-County Camera Club of New Jersey
We are one of the most active camera clubs in northern New Jersey. Our members join to learn about taking good photographs, to see the work of top photographers and to share their own photographic ideas. Our club has been home to outstanding photography for over 60 years, and has been meeting in Nutley, New Jersey since 1963.
Our goal is to learn and grow as photographers. This is accomplished as members exchange ideas, share experiences and offer technical advice. Outside experts are also brought in to offer workshops and demonstrations.
We are a member of New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs (NJFCC) and the Photographic Society of America (PSA). As a club, we have successfully participated in competitions held within both organizations and received not only club recognition, but also individual ribbons, medals and trophies.
One of the main activities of our club is photo competitions. These competitions allow you to show your most prized work and get feedback from experienced judges. Even if you don't feel "competitive" it is still a great way to learn photography in a supportive environment.
Whether a beginner or a veteran photographer, TCCC members compete with others at their same experience level. Generally everyone who first joins competes at the beginners level then progresses to intermediate and ultimately Salon.
Additional opportunities are available through higher-level competitions of the PSA and NJFCC as well as inter-club competitions with other local camera clubs.
Competitions are primarily in digital images with a few print competitions during the year. Competition subjects include Pictorial (anything goes), Creative and Nature.
Programs & Workshops
From time to time we will bring in guest speakers to share a variety of experiences from travel photography to "street" photography to lighting techniques and more.
