What we're about

Welcome to CCR Meetup!

We are happy to have you join our MeetUp Group and enjoy the many activities and educational opportunities we offer. CCR Meetup is sponsored by the Camera Club of Richmond (CCR).

The Camera Club of Richmond was founded in 1932 to promote the art of photography in central Virginia. Our mission is to pursue excellence in photography by offering activities, education, exhibit opportunities, image evaluations, and photo competitions to members. The Camera Club of Richmond’s goal is to give all members an opportunity to enhance their skills by learning from other members, as well as from invited outside professionals in the photography field.

Our membership has a wide range of experience and skill levels in film, digital, and mirrorless cameras. In addition, members have the opportunity to display their work in various galleries throughout the Richmond area, have their work evaluated several times a year at our scheduled Evaluation Meetings, and participate in an End of Year Competition and Awards Presentation.

CCR welcomes photographers of all experience levels to share their passion for photography. Please be our guest at one of our monthly meetings:
2nd Wednesday of each month (January – November)
6:30 PM – Networking
7:00 PM – General Meeting & Program

We are currently "Zooming" until Covid protocols allow us to meet in person. Those Zoom links will be shared in the MeetUp Events or you may contact CameraClubofRichmond@gmail.com for login information.

You may attend 2 CCR Monthly Meetings as our guest. 
In fairness to our Members, on your 3rd visit, you will be asked to join CCR and pay the annual Membership Dues of $40.

When we do return to in-person events, they will be at:

PHOTOGRAPHY TALK: Small world photography, with Polina Plotnikova

PHOTOGRAPHY TALK: Small world photography, with Polina Plotnikova
by Camversation

Polina joins to talk about doll photography!
About this event
As requested by MANY people within the Camversation community, I'm pleased to have Polina REJOINING us to talk about her 'small world' photography.
From Polina:
My ‘Small World’ talk is sort of derivative from my still life presentation that you have already seen – it’s all about art doll photography. Dolls in my collection are posable, ball-jointed-dolls, they are highly collectable objects, created by remarkable craftsmen and are effectively real work of art. I cover a bit of history of ball jointed dolls collecting (BJD) and talk about various aspects of photographing dolls, adjusting scale of lighting, sourcing props etc. I also talk about visualising creative ideas and implementing them in front of my camera with my doll models. It is standard club talk time wise, with time for Q&A covering aspects of photographic history of collectable art dolls and creative visual stories with them.
