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 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.

Upcoming Events


Program Night  - March 26th - "International Space Station, Earth Observation and Photography" - presented by David Libby

David will talk a bit about how image target selections are made, the equipment and process for taking photos on the ISS and getting them back to earth, the unique vantage point the astronauts have, and why astronaut photography is still important with all the satellite and automated earth imagery that now exists.

David Libby is Chief Technology Officer at TERC, a non-profit focused on K-12 math and science education and has for the past several years been project manager for Windows on Earth. The WinEarth project receives all photos taken by the astronauts on the International Space Station within days of being shot, and posts selections to the Windows on Earth website (www.windowsonearth.org) as well as featuring a Mystery Image of the week on Twitter (@WinEarthPhotos).
