San Luis Obispo Camera Club

Photography the Fun Way

Enjoy the camaraderie of people with a common interest! Whatever your level of experience, if you are interested in photography you'll probably enjoy our activities and members. We have a good time while learning from each other. See some of our member's images on the Photo Gallery page.

Our club is a non-profit organization devoted to photography as a hobby. Membership is open to all who have an interest in photography, no matter what your level of experience. We welcome digital as well as film photographers.

Meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the 2nd Thursday of each month (except December) at the Guild Hall (formerly the Grange Hall) in San Luis Obispo.

Visitors are always welcome at our meetings. Come to a meeting and get acquainted!

The state’s public health experts have determined that large public gatherings should be postponed or canceled across the state until the end of the month. Therefore the SLOCC Board has decided to cancel the April general meeting and Competition. We encourage everyone to take precautionary measures which include regular hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home if you are ill.

How I Got the Shot with The Photographer’s Ephemeris Software 


The Photographer’s Ephemeris software is a planning tool that allows the photographer to know when and where the sun and the moon will rise and set on any day in any place in the world. The software is available as a free web app over the internet from a desktop or laptop computer. It is also available as an app for mobile devices for a fee.

Pat Brown will demonstrate how to use the software and then show how she used it to plan and execute one of her favorite moon images. If you would like to check out the software before the meeting, here is the link:
