Welcome to the home page of the Santa Maria Camera Club.

We are friendly photographers who pride ourselves in having members of all ages and photographic abilities. Our members enjoy a varied program of internal, external and interclub competitions in addition to field trips and visiting guest speakers. We try to cater to everyone.

Then you have come to the right place! The Santa Maria Camera Club is all those things and MORE.

With the recent social distancing guidelines mandated to control the spread of the Covid-19 virus, all club program, competitions, and board meetings are being held virtually via video teleconferencing.

Our Program meeting is the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00PM. We have guest speakers sharing their ideas and talents, as well as club members sharing "Show and Tell" images for everyone to enjoy.

Our Competition meeting is the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00PM. All competitions are now limited to digital imagery.

Saturday Breakfast Chats, 2nd Saturday of every month are also being held via video teleconferencing.
