About the Tracy Camera Club

Our mission

Our mission at Tracy Photography Club is to provide community education programs and services to enhance our artistic community and the opportunity for members with a wide range of photographic experience and interest to come together regularly to share, learn and develop skills in an environment that fosters and encourages the growth of artistic vision and technical excellence. 


At our heart, we are more than just a photography club; we are a community of passionate artists who believe in the transformative power of education. Our mission is simple yet profound: to foster a love for photography and empower individuals to master this captivating art form. The Tracy Photography Club is a registered 501(c)(3) organization.

What We Do

How We Help

Join us on this photographic journey—where learning, creativity, and camaraderie flourish. Together, we’ll capture moments that last a lifetime.


The Tracy Camera Club meets regularly on the second Wednesday of most months (February through November). 

Who we are

We are a group of photographers who desire to improve our photographic talent. The highlight of our monthly meetings is the judging which is done in a friendly and fun atmosphere. The club appeals to all levels of ability from beginner to advanced photographers, and our members range from youth to seniors.

We are made up of members arranged in 3 groups; B (Beginner), A (Advanced), AA (Top Level). Advancement to the next level is based on accumulated points, and each group is judged separately.

The board is made of volunteers and elected members who want to help run the club. Let the president know before the end of the year if you are interested in holding a board position the following year.
