Welcome to the Sonora Photo Club!
The Sonora Photo Club was founded in 2005 in the California Gold Country city of Sonora, California, to promote the art of photography. Photographers of all experience levels, from beginner to professional, are welcome to join and meet in a supportive and friendly environment, where expertise and skills can be shared and developed in all aspects of photography. The Sonora Photo Club is partnered with the Mother Lode Art Association.
In addition to meetings, members of the club may meet occasionally to head out for a shoot in the local area. Located in California’s gold country and close to Yosemite, our club has a wealth of opportunities to explore the old mining towns of the Mother Lode, the many specialized farms, ranches and wineries, and the grandeur of Yosemite National Park and the Sonora Pass area.
The club offers numerous opportunities for members to show their photographs. Each month, the Club features a different "Photographer of the Month", displaying several of their photographs in a special section of the club's website. Each photographer chooses their photos to represent their general work or perhaps a project or goal that they're working on. The Club also sponsors a "Theme of the Month". Other display opportunities include slide shows and linking to a club member's website from the club website. Additionally, we post member images on the club website annually. Our association with the Mother Lode Art Association gives us access to venues where SPC members can display their work free of charge.
We welcome visitors to our meetings and would love to have you drop by and meet us. Go to our website at https://www.sonoraphotoclub.org/ for much more information about the club, many examples of members' work, and announcements of meetings and events.
