The Lakeshore Camera Club, according to current president Lisa Califf had to take over for the Muskegon Camera Club without much past history when the previous club’s president withdrew.

The Muskegon Camera Club, as reported in these pages over the years, had a similar goal to the present: bringing together local photographers to “meet, discuss and share our love for photography.” According to Califf, that club had been around for about 70 years, which would mean seeing vast changes in technology.

The Lakeshore Camera Club held a show at the Norton Shores Library last Saturday, inviting the public to vote for their favorites. The photographers present sold calendars and postcards, and there was a graffiti background where photographer Kevin Featheringill took free photos.

The first prize winner was Grand Haven Pier in Grand Haven by Dale De’vries, second was Golden Winter Grass by Cathy Hunter Prewitt Misze; and third was A Different Perspective by Shelly Mitchell.

They promise that they will be back for shows twice a year.

In the meantime, visit them on Facebook to see, for example, the results of monthly challenges such as “Shadows.”
