Winners from all of the monthly competitions during 2019 were viewed by an outside judge who chose the “best of the best” for the year, in various categories.

The Club was formed in 1998 to “…promote photography as a hobby, providing a forum for exchanging knowledge of the subject and inspiring amateur photographers toward improving their art.”  Successful from the start, the Club has attracted novices, experts and professionals to learn about photography from each other.  We are very proud to say that some of our novices have advanced rapidly and have become professionals themselves.

We’re always looking for new members to share in the fun and learning.  Guests are always welcome to attend meetings for free.  Modest dues are required to compete or vote.  See www.smccc.org to learn more about the Club.
