The Camera Naturalist Photo Club has been in existence for over 35 years and is
one of the few photo clubs in New Jersey dedicated strictly to the art of nature
Our main objective is to share the beauty of our natural world, through photography,
with club members, friends, family and the public. Members vary in experience from
beginner to expert and new members of any skill level are welcome. Over the past
several years, our members have been switching from film to digital and our slide
projector has been pushed aside by our top of the line digital projector.
Our meetings alternate between club competions and educational programs designed
to improve your photography and photo editing skills.
Our yearly dues are $50 ($70/family) which goes to offset the cost of judges, lecturers, and
other operating expenses.
Our meetings are held twice a month on Thursdays, from September to June.
The meetings take place at the Somerset County Environmental
Education Center; 190 Lord Stirling Road, Basking Ridge, NJ 07920, beginning promptly
at 7:30 PM. Please check our
for exact dates.
The Camera Naturalist Photo Club participates in, and occasionally hosts, state-wide
nature competitions run by the New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs, of which we
are a member. The club is also active in displaying our work through photographic
exhibits at various public facilities.
Anyone with an interest in nature photography, or a desire to come see beautiful
images of the natural world, is invited to join us at one of our meetings. You won't
be disappointed. For more information feel free to contact the club president via
