Welcome to Westbridge Camera Club. Founded in April 1949, Westbridge is central Ohio's oldest and largest photography club. Joining Westbridge provides photographers of all levels the opportunity to connect, learn, and share all things photography with others sharing a passion for photography.
From beginners to advanced photographers, educational programs, competitions, photographic outings, special interest groups, a members-only email list providing the opportunity to share and interact with fellow members, and opportunities to exhibit work are a handful of our offerings. Most importantly, learning and growing by interacting with fellow photographers is one of the greatest perks.
Please join us at the Griswold Center in Worthington on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month through December 2018. Meetings begin with social time at 6:45 p.m. followed by the evening program from 7:20 to 9:00. Starting in January 2019 we will be meeting the 1st and 3rd Monday evenings at Midwest Photo Exchange on Silver Drive - a great move that will provide greater flexibility for all of our programs.
The first monthly meeting is program night and will typically consist of an educational presentation on a chosen topic. The second monthly meeting is competition night. You do not need to be a member to attend any meeting; however, you must be a member enter competitions or participate in critique sessions. Months that contain a fifth Monday will be a 'Digital Critique Night', for members choosing to have images critiqued. Please join us to connect, learn, and share all things photography.
While you're at it, take a look at Connections, our newsletter/magazine. (see link below) This publication is yet another way for photographers to share their work and to learn and be inspired by fellow Westbridge members. In addition to a gallery of member photos, each issue includes instructional and informational articles on various photography topics.
We hope to see you at our meetings and look forward to your membership in this dynamic and thriving photography club. Every individual has something to contribute and every individual, no matter how experienced, has something to gain. See you soon.

Fischer Hall, Otterbein University through December 10, 2018
Leonardo Carrizo will be featured in a new photography exhibition called Labor and Life at Otterbein University this fall. The exhibition will feature some of Carrizo’s best images taken in Ecuador that tell stories about the people and their life on the land. In addition to teaching, Carrizo is a multimedia photojournalist who traveled to Iceland and Ireland with National Geographic this summer.
The Schumacher Gallery at Capital University January 21 – March 30
This exhibition features an extraordinary selection of vintage photographs by Edward S. Curtis, which highlights both iconic and previously little-known images, many of which are printed in Curtis’ most compelling and rare processes. The prints are among the finest examples that exist and, in some cases, are the only known example of an image. Every style, subject matter, cultural/geographic area, and medium Curtis worked in will be included. The gallery is in the library building across Main Street from Graeters Ice Cream. The exhibition will be up until December 1 with the next exhibition being Native Americans by Edward S. Curtis.
