About the Fresno Camera Club  Printable Copy

The Fresno Camera Club provides an educational and social forum for amateur photographers in Fresno, Clovis and the surrounding central California communities. It is a club for those who are seeking to enjoy their hobby of photography and also to improve their skills with cameras through social, educational, and competitive activities with others having an interest in the same goals. Fresno Camera Club is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Photographic Society of America since 1944. The Fresno Camera Club is also member of the San Joaquin Valley Camera Club Council (SJVCCC) and members also attend the PSA Gold Rush Chapter meetings.

The Fresno Camera Club was organized in 1891 by Percy Fenton (Adelsbach) Adams and three friends, with Adams it’s President. The club has remained active since those very early beginnings.

We currently have over 75 members and hold meetings monthly, holding a combination of print and digital image competitions for members. Meetings of the Fresno Camera Club meets at 7 p.m. on the Third Tuesday of the month (except July, August and December), at University of California Center, 550 E. Shaw, Fresno, CA 93710-7702, Frontage road on Shaw near Angus, opposite Fashion Fair.  The July Meeting is a BBQ at a location to be determined and the December Meeting is our year end meeting and is held at the Ramada on Shaw.  See the Calendar Page for more details and exact dates of meetings.
