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 Image of the Year Competition.

Bowie discusses shooting under varying tidal conditions, creating artful compositions and images with heart. He offers equipment recommendations, covers research and pre-planning, shooting opportunities based on weather and light, and state-of-the-art processing techniques — to help photographers create special seascapes that convey the power of the oceans and the beauty, charm and character of coastlines,
