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.

Presentation: Sports Photography

Speaker: Billie Weiss

 

Billie Weiss will discuss and illustrate the day to day responsibilities of his role as the official team photographer for the Boston Red Sox. He will also offer tips and tricks for capturing moving subjects, and discuss the mentality and mindset involved with making a great sports photograph. You will see examples of bold, vibrant, iconic imagery from both Fenway Park and other sports venues and events throughout the world. We will leave plenty of time for a question and answer session in hopes of having a great discussion and dialogue surrounding ways to improve your technical skills with motion and sports photography.
