In 1957 the Lakeshore Camera Club was started by a small group of photographers in Pointe Claire. Their interests centered around film cameras, working in the darkroom, and printing techniques.

While there are still members who dabble with film today, the club has evolved into a large and vibrant group who capture images digitally, with cameras and even cell phones.

Our online capability has allowed us to expand far beyond the borders of Pointe Claire. We now welcome members from other provinces and even other countries.

The LCC was originally created as a place where people could come to hear stories, view great images, and share their own experiences in the world of photography. It is still that place today.

Members are exposed to a wide variety of subject matter and styles, enabling them to learn new skills and grow in the art of making images. Speakers from all over the world join us online and inspire us with their skill and insight into the art of photography.

Our club provides ample opportunity to interact with other members. We encourage a free exchange of ideas on both the artistic and technical aspects of our craft. We do not offer structured courses, but our members generously share their knowledge. Whether it is composition, camera settings or digital editing, there is a lot to be learned at the LCC.

We invite you to explore the many facets of photography through speakers, field trips, workshops, competitions, and critiques, and to move your photographic vision to new heights.

Photographers of all styles and abilities are encouraged to come and participate in our weekly gatherings.

Meetings are held on Mondays, from September through May, in person at Stewart Hall, 176 Lakeshore Rd., Pointe-Claire, QC, as well as live-streamed and recorded over Webex. Members can choose to attend in person, virtually, or view at a later date.

Although meetings are conducted in English, we have many francophone and bilingual members.

All are welcome.
