Welcome to the South Bay Camera Club

Welcome to South Bay Camera Club! We are a well-established, active club of photographers spanning all ages and skill levels. We offer a fun mix of opportunities, ways to participate and learn the Art of Photography.

Our meetings are held on the second and fourth Mondays of every month except the months of December and June (no second meeting those months).  Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and conclude by 9:00 p.m.

We meet at the:
Torrance Municipal Airport (Zamperini Field)
3301 Airport Drive
Torrance, CA 90505.

Members and guests are invited to arrive early to socialize and help setup before the meeting begins.

Next Club Meeting:

In Person SBCC club meetings have been cancelled until further notice due to the corona virus pandemic.  Torrance airport has informed the club that THE TORRANCE AIRPORT FACILITY HAS CLOSED THE MEETING ROOMS. No date has been set for re-opening.  To remedy this situation, the club is having virtual meetings on line through Zoom.  The next Zoom meeting will be on:

Monday, July 13, 2020 at 7P.M.  A notice and invitation to the Zoom meeting will be sent out to all members. 

This will be a Digital Critique meeting. Members upload 2 photos on the website Digital Submissions.

We hope to see you at the Zoom meeting. Stay safe and healthy.
