On January 31, 2005, an Open House was held in Southeast Queens to discuss the possibility of forming a camera club in the community. The vote of the 40 attendees was unanimous and the Southeast Queens Camera Club (SEQCC) was organized in February 2005. SEQCC meets on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Tuesday of every month from September through June and meetings start promptly at 7:00 pm. All meetings are open to the public and there is never any pressure to join SEQCC. Our meetings are held at Roy Wilkins Park, 177-01 Baisley Blvd., Jamaica, NY 11434.
We provide education sessions, monthly competitions, field trips, image share critique sessions. We also host exhibits at external venues. We convene an annual auction, and we assist at the annual Art Exhibit sponsored by the Southern Queens Park Association. Our meeting schedule is posted here. We have fun together as we strengthen our knowledge of photography. We have approximately 50 members: some are beginners and others are more advanced. Regardless of your level in photography, there is a place for you here at SEQCC.
July and August are reserved for in depth educational programs if scheduled. Check here for subject and requirements.
SEQCC is a member of the Photographic Federation of Long Island (PFLI) which consists of 21 camera clubs from the 5 Boroughs, Nassau and Suffolk with over 600 members. The PFLI holds monthly inter-club competitions and SEQCC submits images monthly. The PFLI Website contains information on their competitions, free photography classes, programs, etc. This is your invitation to visit with us!
