About Us

How it all started

There we were late in 2008, nine people on different skill levels and experience — some serious amateurs, some professional photographers, all with a passion for photography…seeking a venue to share, learn and grow our passion.

Charter Members

Mission Statement

It is the goal of South County Photo Club to become a recognized art force in the South Orange County area and to provide a forum for networking, supportive analysis, exhibition and education for photographic artists of all levels.

And here we are today

We welcome photography enthusiasts of ALL levels and any camera. We are here to share and learn from each other. We encourage guests to attend our meetings to find out what we are all about, and we hope you stick around and consider becoming a member.

Our website is an extension of our club so check back often for announcements and updated information, especially on the Calendar, as well as new uploads to the Club and Member photo galleries. New members, please be sure to create an account on the website so we can contact you with any late breaking news.

Consider getting involved on committees or the board

It’s great when new people volunteer for committees or join the board — they bring new ideas and fresh enthusiasm to the club. Thank you to the 2013 board and committee volunteers for sharing their time and talents. If you have ideas or suggestions please contact any board member and they will try to get it done. If you have any complaints please forward to our president Jeanette DiAnda 🙂
