Welcome to the Livermore Valley Camera Club

The Livermore Valley Camera Club (LVCC) was established in 1958 so that photographers of all levels could meet to share their images, learn from each other, and take part in a range of photo-related activities. We share a desire to interpret the world around us in images and to help each other become better photographers. One of our fundamental activities is showing our images at the club in a friendly competition and listening to critiques from experienced judges. Doing so is a way to be recognized for our work and an opportunity to continue learning about how to make better images.

The goal of the club is to promote excellence in photography. The emphasis is on camaraderie, enjoying other people’s work, and sharing stories and techniques. If you have always enjoyed taking pictures or admired others’ photographs, the camera club is a great place to share your work, meet others who enjoy photography, and expand your knowledge and experience.

The club is based primarily on the guidelines set up by the  Northern California Council of Camera Clubs (N4C), of which LVCC is a member. N4C is a federation of fourteen camera clubs located in the Greater Bay Area. The club also sponsors an annual beginner photography class through the Livermore Area Recreation & Park District (LARPD), conducts a number of photo field trips during the year, and incorporates tutorials into its meetings.

Please join us! Guests are always welcome.
And when you do show up for that first meeting, don’t be shy—introduce yourself, ask questions, and by all means, bring in some of your work. We’ll be glad to have you.
