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.

Education Night - December 3rd - "Self-Expression Through Imagery" presented by Steve Koppel

Steve took up photography initially as a hobby in 2012, and his own imagery became unexpectedly therapeutic when his family experienced difficult medical challenges. Steve believes in the power of self-expression through imagery, independent of an individual’s artistic training or background. This belief led Steve to found the EDI Institute which promotes healing, connection and self expression through digital imagery.   He created a one of a kind mobile app for this work,. The EDI program is currently used in many hospitals and other treatment facilities. 

During his talk, he will discuss imagery as a form of self-expression, both from the perspective of a passionate photographer and from the view of individuals who are “non-artists”.  In addition, he will include techniques used to photograph moving water on the beach.  Steve’s own imagery seeks to convey the deep connection he has with Cape Cod.  He is a Brewster resident, and is represented locally by the FOCUS gallery in Chatham.
