Club Base Information

Green Briar Camera Club
Green Briar Camera Club is 79 years old, the second oldest camera club in CACCA. In 2012 we celebrated our 65th year of membership in the Photographic Society of America (PSA). Green Briar currently has a small but active membership and welcomes anyone interested in photography to join us.

Each season, we hold monthly competitions from October through May (8 in all), and also hold workshops and at least one lecture. We celebrate with an awards banquet at the end of our competition season in June. During the summer, we have fields trips to photographically interesting events and locations (Illinois Railway Museum, Chicago Botanic Garden, Old World Wisconsin, etc).

Several of our members have been affiliated with CACCA and Green Briar for many years and you will find that we shoot a wide variety of subjects: nature, photojournalism, creative images, portraits, and street photography are among them. Current members photographic interests include infrared photography, macro photography, high dynamic range (HDR) technique, postcards, digital slide shows, large format photography, travel photography, and much more. If you are interested in a particular subject or area, there is probably someone at Green Briar who will be gald to help you in your photographic endeavors.

Interested photographers are welcome to come to our meetings and even to participate in a competition to try us out. Our regular schedule is as listed, but please contact our president (email address below) if you would like to come to a meeting to be sure that we have not made a schedule change or are not meeting off-site.

Membership dues are $40/year.
