Welcome to the Oakland Camera Club formerly known as the Pontiac Photographic Society.  Our goal is to share our photographic knowledge and skills with our members.   Our club has been in existence for over 60 years.  We are also affiliated with the Greater Detroit Camera Club Council (GDCCC) which is comprised of 11 clubs including Windsor, Canada, Port Huron, and Toledo, Ohio.   The GDCCC has been in existence for over 80 years.

Our club meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month at 7:00 PM except July and August.  We only meet on the 1st Tuesday in December.

For the 1st meeting of the month (the 1st Tuesday),  we will have a Print competition with two categories:    Monochrome and Color.  We also have an assignment which changes monthly.    We divide the groups into 2 levels:  Beginner and Advanced.

The 2nd meeting of the month (the 3rd Tuesday) will be our DPD competition with five categories:  Color Creative also called 'Altered Reality', Color General, Monochrome General and Nature.   We have special assignments in this division as well which also changes monthly.    Again, we divide the groups into 2 levels:  Beginners and Advanced.

We have various programs during our meeting nights, as well as scheduled photo outings.  Beginners receive OCC ribbons for their wins in the monthly competitions:  1st, 2nd, 3rd or HM's.  We have an End-of-the-Year Banquet in April or May where we compete for the Best of the Best.  

There are GDCCC competitions where we compete against the other clubs in the council.  During the year there are six print and six digital competitions during the year of which each club can only enter five.  Six different clubs will host these events and judge the other clubs entries.  The hosting club does not enter when they judge.   At the end of January, the GDCCC also has an End-of-the-Year Banquet where the all winners from these six competitions will compete AGAIN for the Best of the Best.  At this banquet, you will get a chance to win a medal or medals along with HM ribbons.  It's a fun night and a great time to see wonderful work from your fellow photographers.

Our meetings are always open to the public.  You are welcome to come as often as you like but please note, that if you want to compete, you have to join.  So...if you like taking pictures, if you want to improve your photographic skills, if you want to meet others with the same interests, and if you'd like ideas on when and where to photograph, Oakland Camera Club is the place to be.

Our dues are $25 a year.   Please do come and visit - we'd love seeing you!!
