Welcome

Welcome to Charlotte Camera Club! We are a growing, active club of photographers spanning all ages and skill levels. We offer a fun mix of opportunities and ways to participate.

Our meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month except the months of November and December (no second meeting those months).  Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and conclude by 9:00 p.m. We normally meet at St. John's Episcopal Church at 1623 Carmel Road, in Room 205, but are having virtual meetings during the pandemic. Members and guests are invited to arrive a little early to socialize before the meeting begins.

Ellen Denuto’s unique imagery begins with the beauty of available light.

Shooting on location is her specialty, using the element of the unknown to guide the creative process. Traditional black and white photography, alternative applications and the latest digital technology are used to capture that magic moment in time and create the final image.


Known for her intimate portraits and still life, she has also created visual signatures for clients around the globe —The world is her studio.


Some clients who carry her signature include:

Flashes of Hope - The Fannie Rippel Foundation - BP Castrol  Starbucks - Target Stores - Horizon BC and BS - Penguin Books

The GOAT of Sports Photography Captures the Greatest Athletes

 https://www.tvinsider.com/990149/goats-greatest-of-all-time-sports-espn-walter-iooss-jr-preview/

Former member Robb Shaffer had this to say: “It's a fascinating look at what makes a great sports photographer (or any great photographer) tick. Walter Iooss is an unpretentious person but one who (it seems) is confident about his abilities. His backstories to how he got the great pictures is really interesting and, at times, funny. It was on CBS but it is an ESPN production.”

 Member Dave Warren said, “The series is about sports photographer Walter Iooss (https://www.walteriooss.com/) and his nearly 60 years of iconic sports images, his relationship with the sports icons, and many stories about how he got the shots.”
