The Syosset Camera Club is composed of a group of men and women who share a love of photography. The club meets three times a month (September through May) to enjoy competitions, critiques, lectures, and fellowship.
An outside-approved judge who is not a member of this club judges our work each month. We have two classes of photographers, beginners and advanced. Our work is judged in our own category in three formats, black-and-white prints, color prints, and digital projection. We also have a single digital creative category.
Members also have the opportunity to participate in PFLI- Photographic Federation of Long Island competitions.
We are one of the most active photography clubs on Long island.
On our Sunday morning field trips, we generally carpool and rotate that responsibility. Our trips are generally over by noon, so we have plenty of time to for usual Sunday activities. We meet at a local diner (the Blue Angel on Old Country Road in Plainview) at 7:30 for breakfast and leave from there for our field trip. Usually, our Field Trip Committee sends an email late in the week with a suggested destination. Some members go directly to the destination. If there are no formal plan the group will decides where to go at breakfast.
During the summer, we frequently have sunset field trips to locations in the area. These are also announced through an email to the membership.
Exhibits featuring the work of our members are held once a year at rotating libraries. This gives us an opportunity to introduce our work to the community at large.
In addition to our meetings and field trips, we have several special events each year, including an end of season Awards Dinner.
Members are kept current on planned activities; competition results and current issues of interest to photographers through the website and emails.
