The South Florida National Parks Camera Club, Inc. (SFNPCC) is a newly formed camera club located in Homestead, Florida. Anyone interested in learning more about the camera club and joining are invited to attend our first membership meeting on October 8th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. This will be a great opportunity to meet like-minded people, advance your photographic skills and give back to the community. At the membership meeting we will be introducing the officers and discussing what SFNPCC will look like over the next six months. Feel free to come to the meeting with ideas of what direction you would like to see the camera club go in, with regards to field trips and monthly meetings.
Our goal is to learn and grow as photographers. This will be accomplished as members exchange ideas, share experiences and offer technical advice to one another. Outside experts will also be brought in to offer workshops and presentations.
The mission of SFNPCC is to help its members improve their photographic skills through education and the opportunity to educate others; and through the use of photography, support the National Parks and other local not for profit organizations.
“Educating Members, Sharing Knowledge, and Supporting Not for Profit Organizations Through Photography"
Benefits of Membership
From time to time the SFNPCC will bring in guest speakers to share a variety of experiences from travel photography, post processing techniques using light room, to lighting techniques. Some of the benefits of being a member include special access and fieldtrips to South Florida National Parks including but not limited to Biscayne Bay National Park, Everglades National Park, Big Cypress, and the Dry Tortugas. Also, as part of your membership benefits you will receive discounted/ free workshops, 15% discount at park gift shops with regular membership, opportunities to get published or to be a presentation speaker.
One of the main activities of our club will be photo competitions. These competitions will allow you to show your most prized work and get feedback from experienced judges. Even if you don’t feel ‘competitive’, it will be a great way to learn photography in a supportive environment.
Additional opportunities are available through higher-level competitions of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and the Florida Camera Club Council (FCCC).
