WELCOME!

This is the home of the Newmarket Camera Club.   

Ok, let's keep this simple.  The Newmarket Camera Club was created in 2011 to serve the interests of photography enthusiasts in and around Newmarket Ontario.  Our members shoot with a variety of tools, our club meetings focus (pardon the pun) on DSLR and Compact System (mirrorless) cameras.

The club is operated by Ross Chevalier with the benevolent assistance of an amazing group of members in making the club successful.

Here's the deal.

  1. We meet monthly, fourth Tuesday of the month, in Hall #2 of the Newmarket Community Center at 200 Doug Duncan Drive in Newmarket.  Meetings run from 6:30p0m to 9:30pm. 
  2. Every meeting ends with a member photo review.  Each month, themes are assigned, members submit images and then we review the submissions at the meeting.  Unlike EVERY other club I've attended our reviews are positive affairs.  Criticisms of work are not permitted and know-it-alls and other ne'er-do-wells are not welcome.
  3. Every meeting has at least one training subject, sometimes more.  While we understand that every topic may not appeal to every member, we do try to cover topics that will be of interest, and we are open to suggestions.
  4. To become a member, you must register as a member on this site.  You MUST use your real name.  No Aliases.  You must be a member to participate in discussions and submit images.  Members treat each other with respect and never use another's images without prior written permission.
  5. Effective January 1, 2014, the Newmarket Camera Club has annual membership dues.  The membership is $40 per person, per year.  Membership fees are payable in CASH ONLY.  You can pay at the first meeting that you attend.

 

Folks find belonging to be fun, informative and they meet other amazing people with photographic interests.  There are no politics, there's no executive committee, and we try very hard not to appear elitist.  All ages are welcome and encouraged.  Any skill level is welcome, as is any camera, although in fairness our subjects and trainings will be focused on cameras with interchangeable lenses and viewfinders.  We know lots of folks own and enjoy point and shoot cameras as well as smartphones, but those aren't going to get much, if any, attention.  As noted, any skill level and any camera is welcome, but please understand that our discussions will focus on DSLR and mirrorless style cameras.

If you would like more information, please send us questions via the Contact page.

Thanks very much for visiting.
