St. Mary's County Camera Club had its first meeting on November 2nd, 1998 in St. Mary's City Maryland. The club's purpose is to "...promote photography as a hobby, providing a forum for exchanging knowledge of the subject and inspiring amateur photographers toward improving their art."

We normally meet Wednesdays as follows:

• First Wednesday: Lecture or workshop at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center, at 7PM.
• Second Wednesday: Photo critique at the Pax River Naval Air Museum in the back building, at 7PM.
• Third Wednesday: Competition at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center, at 7PM.

Here's a map to the Higher Education Center, with the rooms we most often use.
