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.

This instructional program represents a fundamental change in the approach today’s bird photographers should take when planning a bird photo shoot, especially when it comes to birds in flight! Come join professional nature photographer Roman Kurywczak, as he covers everything from gear, to settings, and techniques, while also providing insight on some of the most common mistakes photographers make in this exciting field.
Questions are encouraged and answered throughout the presentation so that those attending gain a clear understanding of the principles of bird photography
You can find more of his work as well as an ebook on wildlife photography at www.roaminwithroman.com
Bio: Roman Kurywczak has been a professional nature photographer for over 17 years who conducts lectures and workshops across the globe. His boutique tour company, Roamin’ with Roman Photo Tours, caters to small groups (only 4) to provide the ultimate learning experience for participants. Whether he is out in Tanzania or standing before a roaring waterfall in Iceland, Roman’s energy and passion for nature photography are clearly evident. You can often find him out in Arches or Yellowstone National Park late at night photographing the nighttime landscapes and calling it fun! Closer to home, Roman will spend countless hours doing macro photography. While he enjoys photographing insects, his favorite subject is flowers, which he buys for his wife and he is sticking to that story. Roman is equally comfortable photographing landscapes, macro subjects, and wildlife whether he is at some exotic location or close to home.
His down to earth and easy to follow teaching style make him a highly sought after lecturer. He has given countless lectures and workshops across the country. The author of several instructional eBooks on nature photography, Roman strives to share his passion for photography as others have shared with him. He lives in NJ and has been married for 30 years and has two sons.

Autumn Foliage Boston - Saturday October 10th
It’s time for New England autumn foliage! The color is world class. We won’t be irritated sitting in heavy highway traffic heading to VT, NH or Western MA when we take the short drive (or the T) to our very own Boston Public Garden for fall foliage viewing and photography.
We will stroll the Public Garden to our hearts content viewing the over 80 different species of colorful exotic trees and beautiful plants. There is a whole afternoon’s worth of photographing in the Public Garden, but for those who want to venture out a little, stroll down the tree lined Commonwealth Ave. Mall. We also can walk over to the Esplanade with its tree lined path along the Charles.
This whole area is beautiful and we can compose with a mixture of cityscapes, architectural details and people or simply include only the natural world. There are always opportunities to record the energy of the city or find a quiet corner. It will be a delightful day.
A detailed day plan will be sent out to the signed up group. The time of day will be determined by the weather forecast. Six members minimum. Please, GCC members only.
