Iowa City Camera Club
The Iowa City Camera Club is an N4C (North Central Camera Clubs) Small Camera Club. We are a group of individuals who love photography and sharing our joy of photography with others. Our primary objective is to offer information in the art and science of photography, to stimulate creativity and experimentation, and to render services to others aimed at increasing their ability to practice photography.
We meet twice a month on the first and third Mondays at 7 pm from September through May in Meeting room A at the Robert A. Lee Recreation Center which is located on the corner of Burlington and Gilbert Streets in downtown Iowa City IA. Dues are $30 single, $35 for couples and $15 for first year members.
