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 - All Meetings on Zoom until further notice

 

 

Program Night  - December 8th - "Photographing Space Launches" presented by Joe Marino

Joe Marino is a commercial and media photographer who has been covering events for various firms, magazines and NASA Contractors at the Space Center since 1981. He has also conducted commercial photographic assignments for Cruise Lines as well as Public Relations firms in Florida. 

UPI hired Joe as a contract photographer for the main purpose of covering the events at KSC. Through that time, Joe has also been assigned to cover NASA's space events in Kazakhstan and French Guyana. He has also become the "eclipse photographer" for the wire service, covering these events over the North Atlantic, Arizona, Oregon and Chile. Assignments have taken him throughout parts of the US, Europe and the Mid East.

On the "side" Joe conducts annual safaris in pursuit of photographing Kenya's vast array of wildlife and also brings photographers interested in photographing the Northern Lights in Iceland.  Considering himself as an "old schooler", Joe does not have a website (yet), but can be found in social media by way of Facebook.

Throughout his tenure with UPI, many of Joe's images have been awarded UPI's "Photos of the Year". His trips to Kenya and Iceland are filled by "word of mouth" to those interested in photography and wildlife.
