About the Oakland Camera Club

Stereo photography — 3-D photography — is the marvelous craft of making pictures with the illusion of depth.

The Oakland Camera Club is a San Francisco / Bay Area organization of stereo photography enthusiasts. Join us at a club meeting to learn about the art of stereo photography and experience fantastic printed and projected 3-D photos.

The Oakland Camera Club was founded in 1934 and is a member of the Photographic Society of America. The Oakland Camera Club is a non-profit organization.

What's in a Name?
posted August 28, 2017

The name "Oakland Camera Club" is outdated. It doesn't describe who we are, where we are, or what we do. It's time for an update that will raise our profile.

At our August meeting we brainstormed names and came up with list of candidates. Members, please select your favorites from this ranked-choice online poll. We'll discuss the results at our September 26 meeting and select a finalist (bring your original name ideas that didn't make the list, too).

Monthly Meeting Date Change
posted May 22, 2017

Save the date! The Oakland Camera Club's regular monthly meetings are moving from the third Monday of each month (except December) to the fourth Tuesday of each month.

The availability of our regular meeting room at the Albany Community Center is greater on Tuesdays, and we'll avoid the annual holiday re-schedule when Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Veteran's Day come around the third Mondays of January and February.

Next Club Meeting

7:00pm - 10:00


Albany Community Center, Albany, CA

Special Topic:


From the PSA: "The PSA definition of Creative is 'Altered Reality.' The image must obviously display a change in natural color, form, shape, or any combination of these three. Creative images are often montages (a blending or composite of multiple images). High Dynamic Range (HDR) images without further changes are not considered "altered reality."

Digital stereo images will be shown on the club's 3-D HDTV. Read about Preparing Digital Slides for details.
