What we're about

Welcome to the Eastside Camera Club. We are an amateur photographer’s club (originally founded in 1952), dedicated to improving our skills, and sharing our enthusiasm, knowledge and improving our shooting, post-processing and printing skills. We meet twice a month at various King County Libraries, (Christmas Party Meeting in December). One meeting of each month is always an education night where we have a speaker or sometimes one of our members will select a subject that they are familiar with to share with the group. The second meeting of the month is our print/digital night where each member can bring prints and/or digital images. The prints and digital images are reviewed and critiqued at the meeting. There will be nominal dues, paid annually. These dues pay for potential speakers plus membership to the Northwest Council of Camera Clubs (NWCCC). Any interested club member, listed as Assistant Organizers, can also plan and coordinate field trips during the year. If you live on the Eastside and you are looking for an active camera club, please come and share your enthusiasm for photography!

This JUNE! Explore and Photograph the Palouse

Needs a location

Join professional photographer and educator Dave Julian for the most bang-for-the-buck Palouse photo workshop around.

FOR DETAILS and REGISTRATION see this full description of what we do there, visit this page: http://blog.davidjulian.com/palouse-photography-workshop-david-julian/

THE PALOUSE as it's known, is Eastern Washington’s most scenic centerpiece; expansive, colorful and rich in historic detail.
Join professional photographer David Julian for a photographic adventure to explore and photograph endless rural landscapes, barns, rusty vehicles, livestock and wildlife in eastern Washington and Idaho. Over the past five years he’s scoured the region to connect with locals to offer this memorable photography opportunity. (We have prepared an advanced Covid-safe trip plan if we need still it.)

>> NON-PHOTOGRAPHERS are also welcome! They will also receive guidance to make excellent photographs in the Palouse using compacts and SMARTPHONES.

Many have called The Palouse “the Tuscany of America“, and visitors quickly see why. In this location workshop, we capture the vivid colors and long shadows of sunrise and late day, as well as sunrise and sunset from a high butte. We explore the region shooting aged rural textures, agro machinery, barns, granaries, wizened trees, livestock, a huge hilly farm and spontaneous finds along the way.

Dave gives group and 1-on-1 time to receive dedicated guidance and learn techniques. We review images during or afterwards, and Dave demonstrates how he artfully crafts RAW Palouse captures in Lightroom to convey the feel of the original moment, plus convert to B&W. If you love rural beauty, country charm, and amazing photo opportunities, this workshop is for you.

We are prepared to operate with Covid-19 precautions as we did successfully in 2020 and 2021. Everyone will have been vaccinated.

>NOTE: RSVPs here on Meetup will not save you a spot on this workshop. Please register at link above while we still have space.
