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 2016 - 2017 Competitions

Apr 27th - Wendell Phillips - This distinctive 90-minute presentation illustrates visual constructions of social realities featuring the human condition in all its manifestations. This will include equipment choices and decisions he makes while aestheticizing daily rhythms of life in rapidly changing environments. Phillips will also share expressions of intention without narrative implications. This includes genres of photographic art, organizing space in the camera frame, lights fusion with shadow while considering form and content.
Wendell Phillips is a Vancouver based photojournalist with 35 years of experience in art, editorial and human development photography. He is the recipient of 31 Picture-of-the-Year awards from North American news organizations; as well as winner of two National Magazine Awards. He was voted Canada’s News Photographer of the Year in 1988 and nominated for Canadian Photojournalist of the Year in 2007 and 2009. He has covered assignments in 70 countries on 5 continents.
Hunt's and Olympus will be sponsoring our meeting and joining us on April 27th.
If you have something special you want, please contact Gary Farber email@example.com by this Thursday April 20th so he can get it on the truck.
Olympus will have their new Olympus EM-1 Mark II camera for you to check out. This camera is one of the fastest performing cameras on the market today shooting at 60 FPS when using the electronic shutter. It also has 121 cross hair auto focus points so it focuses at blazing speed. 4K cinema video and an awesome 5 axis in-body image stabilizer round out its incredible features.
May 4th - Elections for 2017-2018 Officers
May 4th - Breaking Photographic Rules: Rules for Rebels - Managed discussions where breaking 'well known photographic rules' delivers images with greater impact
May 11th - Jeff Curto - The Creative Side of photography: Thinking creatively as you approach your photographic project.
Jeff Curto will give a brief presentation and then lead a little exercise (or two, depending on time) that will help members think through some of the bits and pieces of the creative process. His goal will be togive participants some tools for developing project ideas, strategies for making work that offers a unique personal statement and a greater sense of direction for their photography.
