The History of the Palo Alto Camera Club

Palo Alto Camera Club

Past Co-Presidents

Founded in 1935, and co-sponsored by the City of Palo Alto, Division of Arts and Sciences, we are a group of serious amateur and some professional photographers interested in working together to enhance and broaden our photographic skills and artistic vision by:

• Showing our work at print and digital projection evenings for critique by an outside judge

• Learning from other members with similar interests

• Participating in special programs and field trips

• Participating in other opportunities or activities requested by members, such as group exhibits at local galleries/museums

Read about our Club history in three parts. The first document has been saved in its original form and describes our history from the beginning of the Club in 1935.
