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 ribbon winning images from our April Competition.

Upcoming Events

  • May Competition Deadline - Sunday April 30th at 11:59 sharp

  • Education Night - May 2nd - Daytime Long Exposure Photography presented by Jurgen Lobert 

    This is an introduction to daytime long exposure (DLE) photography by New England-based fine art photographer Jürgen Lobert. DLE photography records 1-15 minutes of time in a 2- dimensional photograph by using neutral density filters. This creates unique and intriguing images of the world that we usually freeze in momentary exposures. Letting time pass during exposure converts clouds into bands across the sky, smooths waters to a mirror finish and can make people and moving objects disappear. The resulting imagery is otherworldly and strangely beautiful.

    The following topics are covered: 
        - Why, where and when to do DLE
        - Equipment
        - Cameras, accessories, ND filters and holders, exposing for DLE, expose to the right, RGB histogram
