A Great Place For Photographers for Over 50 Years!
The Huntington Camera Club was founded in 1966 to provide beginning and advanced photographers an opportunity to learn to improve their skills... meet with others interested in photography ... and provide a forum for showing their photographs. Membership is open to everyone with an interest in photography regardless of their skill level. The Club offers instructional programming, entertaining multi-media presentations, judged competitions, field trips and other events including special dinners and a family picnic.
A monthly newsletter lists the activities, and includes the competition results and informative articles.
Annual dues are $70 a year for individual memberships, $20 for students through high school, $55 for seniors age 62 and over, and $110 for family memberships. Over 35 meetings during the months of September through May are held each year.
The Club maintains an active profile in the community. Through dues, the generosity of individuals and various grants and awards, it has cataloged Huntington's historical homes, produced a multi-media show on "A Week in the Life of Huntington," and conducts an annual photo competition for high school students.
All meetings are on Tuesday night and start at 7:30PM(unless otherwise noted) in the Auditorium on the lower level of the Huntington Public Library, 338 Main Street, Huntington Village. On competition nights entries must be received no later than 15 minutes prior to the announced start of the meeting to be eligible for judging. The public is invited to attend all meetings but only paid members can participate in competitions and special events.
For more information call: (631)434-5462.

The club has a regular scheduled field trip EVERY Sunday. This includes summer and winter breaks. We call ourselves the “Sunday Shooters”. Our meeting place is the Dix Hills Diner, 1800 E. Jericho Turnpike, Huntington NY near intersection with E. Deer Park Rd. We order breakfast at 8:00am. We have great conversations, discuss photography, and select places to go over breakfast. We meet rain or shine and throughout the summer and usually find interesting places to go to. Often there are both local and longer trips to choose from so that you can be home early to spend lunch with the family or make it a longer day with a trip to the city. We frequently caravan and pile into one or two cars to share the expense of gas. Please feel free to join us. If you are an early bird, don't worry, many of us arrive about 7:30am to get into pre-breakfast discussions.
