Club Base Information

Lake County Camera Club I
The Lake County Camera Club (LCCC) was founded in the early 1960's by dedicated photographic artists for the purpose of enjoyment of the skills and craft inherent in this endeavor. Through sharing of our avocation, friendships are made and strengthened that will endure forever. One of the goals of the LCCC is to have fun at doing what is enjoyable in the spirit of friendly competition and sharing of knowledge. To this end, the club meetings are friendly and open, conducted in a casual atmosphere where everyone is welcome to participate as fully as they like. Our mission; to promote, teach and share the ideas, skills, techniques and good practices of the art of photography and the use of cameras and photographic equipment.

The yearly club dues are $35 per person and $10 for each additional family member. Family members include: spouse and children or stepchildren (up to the age of 21). Yearly club dues are prorated accordingly throughout the remainder of the year: starting in March, dues are $18 per person and $5 for each additional family member and starting in June, dues are $10 per person and $3 for each additional family member. All advice and information exchanged during, before and after the meetings is free of charge to those willing to listen. Because we know joining a large club may seem overwhelming, upon joining you will receive the name and contact information of an experienced member within our club.

We are an incredibly active club. Competitions are held four times a year in October, December, February and April. For the remaining months of the season, a program is prepared. Topics of interest for the program meetings range from technical discussions of photography to post processing techniques to subjects about specialized photography. The programs are free of charge to paying members and will benefit the novice to advanced photographer; however a fee may be charged for special programs. In this instance, advanced notice will be given.

Additionally, monthly photo excursions are planned for club members for the purpose of providing material for the photographer’s experience and enjoyment. The photo excursions are purely voluntary and at the member’s own expense (if any). The member assumes all responsibility for liability and travel arrangements as necessary. The photo excursions are subject to weather, no rain dates. Times for meeting will be communicated to all members in advance of the date.

On the third Saturday of each month, we gather for our Shutter Cafe. These are small, casual meetings held at Grandma V’s, 10 E. Maple Avenue, Mundelein, IL 60060 at 8:00 a.m. Discussions will be topics related to photography and will last only as long as people want to talk.
