Welcome To The Stony Brook Camera Club
We're in our 50th 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.

Upcoming Virtual Meetings
IMPORTANT NOTICE: One of things your leadership worries about is having enough time/opportunity for social connections at club meetings. Unfortunately, in this time of recommended social distancing, we have decided to be cautious and to temporarily move to virtual meetings. We can’t predict timelines for our return to Dean College, so virtual meetings are only a contingency plan. SBCC leadership has no desire to turn this into a virtual camera club.
The 2020-21 Multi-Club competition categories have been determined. The eight categories are:
Life During COVID
We are competing this year with three other clubs: Boston, Gateway and Newton. Your photos must originate in the period of April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021. Each club will select their best photos in each category to compete in the multi-club competition in April, 2021. We will compete in Classes A and B with rules and format similar to last year. Participation is open to all club members. More information on the Multi-Club Competition Page

: If you need elevator access at Dean College for club meetings, please contact Alan at 508-254-3182 and he will make arrangements with Dean staff. Dean does not leave the elevator key in the elevator door, per their own internal policies. Text or phone call is fine and I would suggest contacting me before 5pm on the day of the meeting.
