Welcome To The Stony Brook Camera Club
We're in our 48th 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.

Combining photography and meditation to "receive" more mindful photographs at a beautiful sanctuary. Westwoods is a non-profit, holistic and spiritual education center situated on more than 70 acres of preserved farmland, forests and wetlands.
This is a hands-on workshop, so bring your camera! The emphasis is on centering ourselves to really "see" the essence of our subjects, rather than just making snapshots. This is not a technical workshop, so any camera, including a smartphone, is welcome. More detailed information will be sent to participants.
Janet has led this workshop twice before for our club, but has added some new things. Participants come away feeling renewed, with a fresh outlook and passion for their photography.

Shoot a Master ... A Photographic Challenge
The challenge is to take an image from any of the masters in photography or paintings and to recreate that image making it your own. Images will be shown as part of our May 31 meeting. Makers will be encouraged to show the image of the master, and then their interpretation of that image. For the evening, we will ask the audience to pick the images they like the best and a small award will be offered to the winners. Clink HERE for complete information!!! (If you plan to submit an image email Rob DeRobertis with a note that you accept the challenge. We will need at least 20 members committed by Feb 1 to make this event a success.)
