About The Ventura County Camera Club
The Ventura County Camera Club is one of the older photography clubs in California. No one has maintained a history but its founding is thought to have occurred in the mid-1940s. The club provides the opportunity to learn the techniques and appreciate the art of photography through critiques of members’ images by guest professional photographers, exposure to the work of others, workshops, and planned photo field trips, in a friendly atmosphere. Club meetings are held at 7:00 PM on the second Wednesday of each month, January - November at the Poinsettia Pavilion and are free to the public, however, only members can submit images for critique.
