Welcome To The Stony Brook Camera Club
For over 50 years SBCC's mission statement has been “To promote enjoyment and proficiency in all aspects of photography through education, fellowship, exchange of knowledge and experience; and a broad appreciation of nature and environment.” SBCC includes and welcomes members of all abilities. Whether a casual smartphone shooter or an advanced photographer, everyone grows in knowledge and experience through SBCC’s many programs and workshops.
The Stony Brook Camera Club meets virtually on Thursdays at 6:30 PM for a social hour and 7:30 for the program from September to June. See our calendar for the schedule of events. Our meetings feature competitions, speakers, image studies and discussions of general interest. We also sponsor a number of image-taking activities all year. 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.

Upcoming Virtual Meetings on Zoom
IMPORTANT: We are now using a new tool for emails. Please check your spam/junk and promotions folders for SBCC emails and mark the sender as a contact.
June 10th @ 7:30 pm "Virtual Banquet"
This will be our last formal weekly meeting of the year! As we won't be having our usual banquet at the Bethany Church, we will celebrate the end our of club year with your beverage of choice and "Shoot the Music".
We are looking for 10 members to submit their work. Submissions are due no later than Tuesday, June 8th.
If you are planning to submit please let Jim Borrebach know. There are a few spots left. Below is the description of the project.
Shoot the Music
Music, much like photography, elicits a wide range of emotions, bring back memories, and can transport the listener to a different time and place. For this event, we are looking for you to share your photos or videos (3-4 minutes max) that remind you of a song, a particular lyric, or are set to specific songs/musical scores that impart those same emotions, and memories as the music does for you.
Field Trips, Workshops and Events of Interest
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT WORKSHOPS
Until further notice all workshops will occur using Zoom, the same program we use for meetings. Although a microphone and webcam are recommended, you can participate with just a microphone. As with our meetings, once you register and pay, you will receive an email 2-3 days before the workshop giving you the information you will need to download the program, sign into the workshop and participate. If we do not fill the workshop with members by the deadline date for registration, we will have the option to open registration to non-members at an increased fee. Rest assured this will still be first come, first serve and will not exceed the maximum number of participants.
SBCC members can join the SBCC Meetup group for free. We schedule photo walks and field trips via Meetup. This is the LINK
