Eastern Maine Camera Club

Developing Photographers

Opening Night! 

Presidents Welcome - 2018-2019

As of this writing, the summer has been lovely – almost enough rain, lots of sunshine. Enough fog to take photos on the coast, enough sunshine to ride the Sunrise Trail, taking photos of osprey. The old folks used to call Daylight Savings “Fast Time” and it seems that summer does go much faster than the winter months. That said, it is now time to think about the fall and semi-monthly meetings.


Our first meeting this fall will be held on Sept 6th, 2018. This meeting is for members and those who plan to join. This provides us an opportunity to re-connect with old friends and meet new ones. Members should have received a letter in the mail with details. If you are planning to join and would like to attend please contact us by sending an e-mail to info@eastermainecameraclub.org.


During the past year, in addition to our field trip schedule, with guidance from Kevin Doyle, we initiated an Instagram Challenge, where members can upload photos and choose favorites. We are looking forward to learning what our Field Trip Guru, Don Darling, will include for interesting and challenging trips this year.


Please send dues to Treasurer Larry Sherwood, using the form found at this link: Click here for Membership Form.  Keeping dues current enables you to compete in competitions.


Finally, I want to recognize the wonderful job that Jeanne Caron has done as President of the Club. Her personality, cheerfulness and patience are an example for all of us.

To a wonderful year.

Liz Champeon

Categories for 2017-2018 

The voting results

At our awards banquet this year we voted for the 2017-2018 Season competition categories.  Thanks to all who attended and voted.  With no further ado...the winners are:

  • Open
  • Nature
  • Abandoned in Maine
  • Seasons
  • Animals
  • Flowers
  • Open Again

They may not end up in this order.  I'm sure Joel will be publishing a new schedule for the 2017-2018 season well before we start in September. 

(Italicized items were decided by the vote, others are permanent categories)

Photography With A Message 

An Exhibit Worth Seeing

Photography is a medium for depicting the human condition. Scenes capturing every day life on urban streets provide momentary reflection of ourselves in the act of living.  The AW@3Fish Gallery in Portland has such an exhibit with images from one of our upcoming speakers. The exhibit will be open until September 20.

"Urban Street Shots"

These are street shots taken in several cities around the world, commenting on the human landscape.

The presentation is in the square format because I feel it makes the portraits more intimate, closer up. For a preview of these photographs go to the "Urban Street Shots" gallery on my website: vanvoorstvanbeestfinefoto.com

You can get a look at the gallery web site here:  http://www.addisonwoolley.com/

Take the opportunity to see this fine work if you are in the vicinity of Portland.

Not Getting Club Emails?  

Some members have reported trouble, here's some tips that may help.

Some members are reporting that they are not getting the emails that Don sends out regularly.  Don sends the emails as a "Newsletter" from our website.  So the emails get generated by the web site, and are automatically sent to all members who have registered on the web site, paid their dues and subscribed to the newsletter.  Oh, and they are sent to the email address you registered with.  They come from info@easternmainecameraclub.org.

So there are a couple things you can check if you are not getting the emails. 

  1.  Is your email registered correctly on our web site?
  2.  Are you subscribed to the Newsletter?
  3.  Is mail from info@easternmainecameraclub.org going to your spam folder?

So for the first item, log on to our web site and click on the "My Account" link at the very top of any page.  There you will see a "Security/Identity" tab, where you can change your email address (you can't change your id, that always stays the same).

To check that you are subscribed to the newsletter go to the "Newsletter" tab.  There you will see a check box (image below) for the "EMCC Somewhat Daily Newsletter".  That has to be checked in order for the emails to be sent to you.  Only members can sign up for this newsletter.
