About Focus Camera Club

Since 1987, Focus Camera Club of Colorado has helped photographers of all levels increase their enjoyment of photography. Join us for monthly photo competitions and informative presentations, and for the local photo meetups we do a few times a year. We also offer Mentoring from some of our more experienced club members.

Whether you like film or digital or both, get more out of your photography by learning from our Program presenters, challenging yourself in our monthly Competitions, and attending local shoots with other members.

The purpose of the Focus Camera Club is to further its members’ enjoyment, knowledge and mastery of photographic skills through cooperative efforts and fellowship. We are here for beginning through advanced photographers.
