About Us:

The Color Camera Club of Westchester, serving photographers here in Westchester County since the early 1950s, was founded to sponsor and support activities for the camera enthusiast. Our purpose is to help beginning and advanced photographers learn photographic skills that will increase their artistic ability and their pleasure of photography.  We have weekly meetings on most Monday nights at 7:30 PM at the American Legion Hall, 27 Legion Drive, Valhalla, NY 10595 where professionals and advanced photographers present educational and artistic programs designed to further the proficiency of our members and guests, open creative visions and inspire.

The CCCW is a member of the Westchester Council for the Arts, as well as the Photographic Society of America and participates in gallery exhibits throughout Westchester on a regular basis. 

Our weekly programs are free, and refreshments are served. You will find our activities to be fun, educational and entertaining. We also present workshops, take field trips and travel to interesting locations for weekend photographic excursions.  Our new mentoring program is a major benefit for those wanting to further their photo imaging skills.
