About the PSCC

The Puget Sound Camera Club (PSCC) endeavors to provide fellowship and to advance the skills of the serious amateur photographer. We encourage a free exchange of ideas on both the artistic and technical aspects of photography. We feel the input gained from comments and critiques by other members is invaluable to building our skills as creative artists.

To further this aim, PSCC holds bi-monthly competitions/evaluations that enable members to show their latest work and receive feedback. The club also organizes field trips, visiting different locales in the area. These informal outings focus on camaraderie, the sharing of tips and techniques and insight  into the creative instincts and methods our members use when photographing similar scenes.

The club is here to assist our members, whether they are just starting out or are seasoned photographers. We honor classic technique as well as the latest ideas and processes popular in current photography.

Located in Edmonds, the PSCC was founded by Lucille Ainsworth and Kathryn McDowell in September, 1984. The current president is Lauren Heerschap.

Membership in the Puget Sound Camera Club is open to all people interested in photography regardless of camera brand or type. Both digital and film shooters are welcome.

The PSCC is an affiliate club of the Northwest Council of Camera Clubs (NWCCC) and the Photographic Society of America (PSA). These associations provide regional, national, and international opportunities for competition and communication between chartered camera clubs. The PSCC is an active member within these larger organizations and regularly submits images from its members’ portfolios for a wider degree of competition and recognition.
