The mission of the South Florida National Parks Camera Club 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.
The South Florida National Parks Camera Club is a proud member of the Florida National Parks Association. The FNPA traces its roots to the Everglades Natural History Association, formed at Everglades National Park in 1951. In 1985, their scope of work was significantly expanded to include additional National Park Services responsibilities at Big Cypress National Preserve, Biscayne National Park, and Dry Tortugas National Park.
The South Florida National Parks Camera Club is a proud member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA). As a PSA club members have the opportunity to participate in several PSA Divisions in the following competition categories: Open, Creative, Nature, Photojournalism and Travel.
SFNPCC is also a member of the Florida Camera Club Council (FCCC) which is a nonprofit umbrella organization under which members of camera clubs throughout Florida can benefit by the interchange of ideas and the experience of other photographers. FCCC offers six competitions annually (three print and three digital), open to individual members of SFNPCC.
Speakers and Education
We frequently invite professional photographers to serve as guest speakers and present programs. Our speakers cover broad range of topics, technical aspects and different types of photography. Members occasionally also present educational programs.
To help our members get creative and share their work, we offer monthly field trips to different locations. These are great opportunities to get to know your fellow members and practice while having fun!
