Ongoing: Jefferson County Photography Club

The Jefferson County Photography Club, which was formed in October 2008, has a mission of providing “an opportunity for members of the community to share, learn and develop photographic skills” as well as to explore “the creative and documentary potential of photography to preserve the rich history and culture of Jefferson County.”

This club, which works exclusively with still photography (film prints, black and white, and digital), currently consists of 16 members (both novice and advanced). The Charles Town Visitors Center Fire Hall Gallery serves as the meeting place every second Tuesday at 7 pm. Club activities have already included photo contests; presentations; topic discussions; image critiques; field trips; a gallery showing; specialized, photography classes and, of course, the continuous exchange of valuable information and ideas regarding photography. Members are also looking forward to community photo shoots, historical shoots and youth education programs.
