Welcome to the Gateway Camera Club

Our goals are to share ideas, knowledge, and insight; to help improve the skills and abilities of our members; and to have some fun while enjoying photography.

We recognize photography is changing, growing and with ever-emerging technologies, more exciting than ever!  Gateway was one of the first local camera clubs to embrace digital photography and, as a result, we have some very knowledgeable digital photographers. Many award-winning members of Gateway Camera Club honed their talents and abilities through the mentoring they found at Gateway.

Our club is very active and we meet on most Tuesdays from September to June from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Want to compete, learn and share? Check out our exciting schedule. Visitors and new members are always welcome. Just stop in and introduce yourself. We hope you'll soon find an aspect of Gateway that fits your interests. Please browse our website, learn more about what we do, and enjoy. And remember, enthusiasm is catchy. Come and catch some!   Our Membership Information Page provides details on our club along with a link to our membership application. 

The Slideshow to the right features the winning images from our January Competition.

Upcoming Events

Program Night  - January 23rd at 7:30 PM - "Creative Landscape Photography" presented by John Tunney

Let's say you traveled a great distance to some amazing landscape. But it's cloudy. Or raining. Or the light is just blah. Suddenly a busload of tourists starts swarming over the place like ants on ice cream. Now what? Or maybe you just want a fresh approach to shooting your local park, woods or beach. Creative Landscape Photography offers strategies and techniques that might help. It presents ideas on how to approach a scene, view it with fresh eyes, discover its creative potential and produce an expressive image. Topics include the elements of design and how to use them in "seeing" a scene and composing your images; the creative use of depth of field, shutter speed and motion; and simple editing techniques using Photoshop and/or Elements to give your images added dimension and finish.       

John Tunney is a fine-art photographer and photo educator. Working mostly with coastal subjects, John Tunney creates simple but compelling compositions that range from impressionistic land and seascapes to still lifes, abstracts and creative portraits of jellyfish and other sea life. He prints his own work using archival art papers and pigment inks, creating images that often have a look and feel similar to paintings and mono prints. The results have met with both popular and critical success.As a photography educator, he’s been leading tours, classes and workshops on Cape Cod and elsewhere for more than 10 years.  A former board member and president of Cape Cod Art Association, he developed educational programs for the organization and helped found and lead its Photography Center of Cape Cod and the annual Click! Photography Conference.  Visit his website at:  https://jtunney.com/
