Welcome To The Stony Brook Camera Club

We're in our 49th 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 some of our monthly  2018 - 2019 Image Winners




Upcoming Events

September 5th - 7:00 PM - Program Presentation and Summertime Images at the Norfolk Public Library

We will present the program, members will present Summer Time Images (All members may participate - non competitive) and we will reconnect. We are asking you to limit the number of photos to 10 and if you want to talk about your photos we only ask you keep it under 3 minutes. That way we'll have more time for other members to share their photos as well!  We'll bring some goodies for the opening night event!

The upload link and deadlines are in the email sent to all members

September 12th - 7:00 PM - Honing Your Competition Skills/Image of the Year Winners

Let's have fun with competition this year!  You'll learn a lot from competing by seeing what judges are looking for in photos.  Maybe you'll win a ribbon! 

September 19th - 7:00 PM - Capturing the Mysteries of The Ancient Ones, Ancestral Puebloans by Mike Rice

Check out his website here: https://www.twistedtreephoto.com/

Michael Rice is a fine art landscape artist with a passion for black and white photography reminiscent of the old large format masters. Dramatic light, a smooth tonal range, and textural image details evoking the atmosphere of times past characterize his work. His color work is lush and vibrant, manipulating colors more like an oil painter. Light is playfully manipulated to create drama and intrigue. He honed his craft through the years working as a commercial, portrait, and wedding photographer, photo retoucher, and printmaker. His philosophy is that most photographers are either camera or computer oriented, meaning that while some photographers excel at taking pictures, others excel at enhancing the images in the computer. He believes that to take photography to the next level; one must pursue both disciplines. The synergy is; knowing what is possible in the digital darkroom, aids in the decision-making process in the field.

October 19th  - Stony Brook Camera Club 50th Anniversary Picnic!

Where: Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary
108 North Street, Norfolk, MA 02056
When: Saturday 10/19/2019 10:00AM - 4:00PM
Announcements: 11:30am
Bring: Your family, your camera, a picnic lunch and something to sit on (blanket or chairs)

Stony Brook Camera had it's start at Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary 50 years ago. We want to go back to our roots and celebrate our wonderful club. We're planning to have an exotic car and a period model for you to photograph. There will be recommended photo stations for you to photograph from, all around the sanctuary. AND, you will be able to order 50th anniversary apparel at that time. Lastly, there will be an opportunity to swap prints with other members (details to follow).

Your 50th Anniversary Committee has been working hard to make this picnic possible and we have already received several donations from club members to defray the costs of the picnic. Our overall goal for the 50th season is to find special ways to celebrate, reflect and recognize the club founders/members (past and present) and club history throughout the 2019-2020 season.
