Mission of Indianapolis Camera Club The Indianapolis Camera Club is a long-standing volunteer-led photography organization that was formed in 1927. Our volunteer Board of Directors strives to educate, encourage, and expand the photographic knowledge of its members through “hands-on” experiential learning and participation at our monthly meetings. We do this by inviting interested board and club members to step up & help in teaching & mentoring roles to help our members learn, in a variety of ways, balanced with bringing in outside speakers/experts, etc. We are open to beginners through advanced level photographers, including all genres of photography, though our educational, experiential learning is targeted primarily towards beginning and intermediate level photographers. We believe in inclusion and diversity, accepting anyone to participate and join.
Regular In-Person Meetings Our in-person club-meetings are twice a month, on the 2nd and 4th last two Tuesdays of the month, from 7pm-9pm of each month at our primary meeting location, the Indiana Interchurch Center, 1100 W 42nd St, Indianapolis, IN 46208 (W42nd Street and Michigan Road). We have occasional off-site “photo outings" that we post our our web locations (see below).
Member Communications We post meeting info at all 3 sites, but we use our MeetUp site for member email communications and RSVP confirmations, to help us plan our materials/equipment/room setup needs for the educational sessions.
Member Benefits Membership Dues are $40/year for individuals. Paid member benefits include opportunities to regularly participate in quarterly digital and print competitions, regular digital live critique nights, educational “field trips” to off-set locations, a free password-protected personal-photo gallery on our club website, opportunity to submit prints to our Club Entry to the Indiana State Fair, opportunity to step up and be a volunteer leader or facilitator of club activities, and the opportunity to sell gear at club functions.
Facebook Postings Our club Facebook page is considered to be a communication and educational site. Members and guests encourage to post images on our Facebook site. We just ask that the poster also include basic EXIF data such as camera, lens, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, any lighting setup, anything learned, and anything else about the image that might be educational or interesting to fellow photographers.
