Interested in Joining Our Club?

To become a member of the Focus Group Camera Club you need to be a serious amateur over the age of twenty-one. You should attend at least three club meetings. Focus Group meets at River Road Presbyterian Church on the Second Tuesday of the Month, except July and August, at 7:30 pm • 8960 River Road • Richmond, Virginia 23229. (See: MAP).

After attending the club meetings, meeting the members, enjoying the programs, and deciding that you'd like to join, you first need to fill out our membership application (MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION - PDF). It is meant to help the membership committee get to know you and your photographic interests. Please bring the completed application to the next club meeting. The membership committee will review your application. Our club is limited in size to thirty-five to ensure a quality experience, so if an opening is available and your photographic interests fit into our club's purposes, you will be asked to submit a sample of your photography to the committee. Prints, digital images on CD, or slides are acceptable. Don't panic and fret. The club doesn't expect perfection, since we throw away or delete our share of images, and many people who join show great improvement in the following years. We will be looking for good photographic techniques, creativity, and photographic possibility.

After the membership committee approves your application and photographic samples, the FGCC Board will vote on your membership application. After the Membership Committee approves your application and examples of your photography, you will be invited to join the club. As a member, you will be expected to be an active member of our club, which means attending monthly meetings, paying your annual dues, and participating in the club's activities and committees. Your membership will begin upon the payment of club dues, currently $60 per year. If you have any questions, please CONTACT us.
