Welcome To The Stony Brook Camera Club

We're in our 47th year, promoting enjoyment and proficiency in all aspects of photography through education, by mutual exchange of knowledge and experience, and by promoting a broad appreciation of our natural environment. 

The Stony Brook Camera Club meets Thursdays at 7:30 PM, except holidays, September to June, in Franklin, MA (see About Us | Contact Us/Directions). Our meetings feature competitions, speakers, image studies and discussions of general interest. We also sponsor a number of image-taking activities all year (see Calendar above). Anyone is welcome to attend and experience what we are about, although participation in competitions and our many activities requires membership (see the Membership menu item in the Main Menu above).

We hope you enjoy this site and your time with us all.

The Slideshow to the right features winning images from our September and October Competitions.

October 27th - The Art & Craft of Wildlife & Conservation Photography - Presented by Ossian Lindholm


Have you always wanted to know the secrets of professional wildlife photographers? How do they perfectly capture the colors on a hummingbird’s wing? What are the correct settings for a jaguar roaming in the late afternoon light? Finally, what are some ways that your wildlife photographs can help promote conserving the world’s precious wildlife? Renowned Argentinian nature photographer and documentary filmmaker Ossian Lindholm will cover the basic and advanced techniques of gear, specific wildlife settings and scouting wildlife locations.  He will teach you how to think about composition and lighting when capturing animals in the wild.

Ossian Lindholm is a renowned nature photographer from Tucuman, Argentina.  Trained as an Agronomist, many years ago he turned his deep passion for nature to photography.  In his work as a photographer, teacher and documentary filmmaker, he is dedicated to capturing, preserving, conserving, sharing and sustaining the landscape, nature and culture of Argentina in its most pristine state. Ossian has published five books, 14 calendars and he teaches photography courses throughout the year.  Since 1998 he has been leading groups of photographers and naturalists on photographic journeys throughout his native Argentina.
