Photography Club History

The GVR Camera Club was established in the early 1970’s as one of many Green Valley Recreation organizations that serve our community. Our main interest is photography – both still and video imaging.  The GVR Photography Club has grown one of the largest photography clubs in the country with over 800 active members. In January 2023, the club changed its name to the GVR Photography Club to reflect the fact that many members don't use traditional cameras; but instead use phones, tablets, and drones to capture images and video.

Equipment & Software

The Photography Club has Windows and Apple editing stations available to members. The Photography Club also has specialized workstations and areas available that include:

  • Windows and Mac photo editing
  • Slide Scanning
  • Print Scanning
  • Video Editing
  • Video Transfer
  • Mat Cutting
  • Studio Lighting

You are invited to visit the Photography Club’s facilities at Santa Rita Springs to review the available equipment.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the GVR Photography Club is to promote and develop skills in photography for its members, to foster an appreciation and understanding of photography and digital imaging as art and as a medium of communication, and to provide equipment, assistance and training, and to maintain facilities for the common good of its members.
