As members of the Meadow City Camera Club in Las Vegas we get together and shoot our favorite scenes, then talk happily about the best way to process and print the results, exchange ideas and inspiration. Although most of us photograph digitally, we now have members producing innovative work in film, using old cameras or rejuvenated Polaroids.

We go on “ photo expeditions”—to Bean Day, Fort Union, Cleveland Mill, Valle Vidal and to the Las Vegas motorcycle rally and Fiestas.  We are always amazed at how a group of photographers can treat one subject in so many unique ways.

Expeditions lead to exhibitions. We have had shows at Las Vegas Citizens’ Committee for Historic Preservation, Las Vegas Arts Council and the El Fidel Restaurant. One year, we published a book of photographs of our Sacred Places exhibit of photos of the churches, cemeteries, and shrines of San Miguel County (you can see a copy at LVCCHP).  We have also participated in the LVAC Studio Tour

We always welcome new members. We meet “periodically” and combine a dinner with meetings showing our work, planning an exhibit, or going on expeditions. We learn a lot and grow in our skills. Most importantly we have a lot of fun.

Consider joining the camera club yourself, if you enjoy seeing the world from behind the lens. Contact Bart Ellison at or Martha McCaffrey at to add your name to our contact list.
