Saint Augustine Camera Club
SWAP MEET COMING IN JULY!
The Saint Augustine Camera Club (SACC) was established in September 2010 with a stated mission "to provide club members with educational information and enjoyable activities in the field of photography." At the end of the first meeting, the founding seven members had officers, a mission statement, a schedule of meetings, and a general idea of what they wanted to accomplish. Honoring that mission with a series of lectures, educational workshops and field trips, SACC has grown to over 100 members with a wide array of photographic skills and interests.
SACC works on their goal of continuous education through interesting speakers and presentations. Monthly assignments range from architecture, to landscapes, people, nature, events, abstracts and everything in-between. These assignments are designed to get members out of their photographic comfort zones to explore new subjects and methods. The critiques on these assignments are entertaining and informative as members share their knowledge and expertise. Members volunteer to assist 4-H and other youth groups with photography, and plans are being discussed for a mentoring program.
Coming off a successful member 2014 show and a summer of exhibits at the St Johns County Administration Building, SACC has scored another coup -- an appearance and presentation by Clyde Butcher, one of the most revered photographers of our time and an unmatchable chronicler and booster of Florida's natural beauty. With his works frequently compared to those of Ansel Adams, Butcher's black and white masterpieces of the Everglades and other Florida landscapes have earned him an international reputation. SACC is delighted to present this master photographer (and ardent conservationist) to the St Augustine community.
