What we're about

The Elgin Area Camera Club is a network of photography enthusiasts of all levels, formats and subjects.

Our goal is to have fun while helping one another become better photographers by sharing ideas, providing informative programs & demonstrations, hosting photographic outings, and stimulating improvement through interclub digital and print competitions.

Everyone, regardless of ability or equipment, is welcome at all our meetings and events (it's not the size of your lens that counts!).

So come check us out to socialize with fellow photographers, build new friendships, and have fun while learning to improve your photography.

Artistic Architecture with Lauri Novak

Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church

Artistic Architecture with Lauri Novak – Tuesday, December 13 at 7:30pm

Lauri Novak (www.laurinovak.com) is an award-winning fine art photographer, mentor and author based outside of Chicago. She has an eye for photographing architecture, traveling as much as possible and just wandering in nature with her camera.

One of the questions Lauri is asked most often both by viewers of her work and other photographers is, “How did you see that?” She works hard to show different perspectives, unique angles and the everyday details of a wide variety of subjects.

Lauri also has a passion for helping others, offers mentorships and runs an online SEE! Photography community for other photographers. She also shares her inspiration and motivational tips for photographers as an author at Photofocus.com.

Her work has been featured in Our USA Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Kane County Chronicle and on WGN-TV. She has also had images in several galleries in Chicago and as part of an international exhibition in Barcelona.
