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 - January 28th - "The Infrared Zone" presented by Silvana Della Camera

Do you think you’re photographing in the right dimension? Well consider this if you dare…

Infrared photography is a journey into a wonderous land of photography where what you see is transformed into another dimension with your camera.  Infrared, or IR photography, offers photographers the opportunity to explore the world of the unseen. Infrared photography creates unique images capable of portraying things not normally visible to the human eye.

Learn how infrared photography can give another dimension to your vision of the world.



Bio: A software engineer by trade, Silvana began her fascination with photography as a small child, taking her father’s camera as often as she could, to peer through the viewfinder at the rectangular world she chose to isolate for view. When she was 14, her father gave her a second hand fully manual SLR which unlocked the realm of controlling the light of an instant in time. The early fascination turned into a lifelong love. Infrared film photography was often part of this journey of controlling light and extending the view beyond what our eyes could perceive. Sylvana's website: https://www.silvanaphoto.com/infrared

February 2nd - February Competition Deadline 11:59 PM


February 4th - Education Night - "Family Posing & Lighting, Simplified" presented by Ed Pedi

Learn what makes a great pose and how to direct your subjects to look comfortable. It’s important to understand the basics of posing and seeing the big picture when composing your image. Ed will discuss camera angles, composition, environment, clothing, feminine/masculine posing, hierarchy posing and family tree. Ed will show samples and explain his posing techniques for couples, families and large groups.  Whether you’re just getting started or a seasoned professional, you’re guaranteed to take away some great tips from this posing workshop. Most importantly you will enjoy learning from a photographer whose style of teaching is to bring fun and humor to every presentation and to share knowledge that will help make you more successful at this great business of photography

Bio:  Ed has racked up more than a few awards over the course of his career, most recently receiving his highest award achievement, a PPA Grand Imaging Award for ‘The Finale” in the high school senior category; eight PPA Photographer of the Year distinctions, thirteen loan collection images, and his proudest personal award achievement, the Helen K. Yancy award for meritorious service to professional photography; all of which have helped establish him as one of the most respected and sought-after family portrait photographers in New England.

February 8th Saturday  - 10 am to 4 pm - Gateway Photo Shoot

This year the program committee is putting together a full day of table top shooting. We are reserving Saturday, February 8th from 10AM to 4PM for Table Top Photo Day. Since we will be renting the church hall for the day we are asking participants to contribute $15 which will entitle you to shoot as little or as much as you want from 10AM to 4PM.

We are currently asking for suggestions and volunteers to provide at least 12 table top displays for the day. We are looking for a wide variety of displays to capture our members interest. The $15 fee will be waived for anyone contributing a display.  If you are interested in providing a display please email me with your ideas by January 10th. The program committee will consider all suggestions and select the displays to be included based on variety and originality.

Our current thinking is that we will ask for snack donations and order in pizza by the slice ($) around noon time.

$15 per person
