President’s Message

05-18-2020 Our President’s Message:

First, I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. The South Bay Camera Club started off the 2019-2020 year on a high note. We had digital and print photo critiques, programs by professional photographers, some photo shooting trips, coffee klatches and a banquet in December. It was a good half year. We continued into January and then, because of the corona virus pandemic, we started cancelling meetings in February.

Unfortunately, SBCC club meetings continue to be cancelled until further notice because of covid19.  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 working on having virtual meetings on line through Zoom.  The next Zoom meeting will be on Monday, May 25 at 7P.M.  A notice and invitation to the Zoom meeting will be sent out to all members.  The subject of the meeting will be a digital image critique.  The critique will be done by the membership.  If you would like to submit 1 or 2 photos for this critique, upload them to the DIGITAL critique gallery by midnight Saturday, May 23.  During the closedown, future dates for Zoom meetings will be posted on the SBCC home page and also sent to the membership.

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

Harry Korn,


South Bay Camera Club


General Message from our President:

Welcome to the South Bay Camera Club (SBCC). The SBCC is a non-profit organization for people interested in photography. If you are already a member I’m glad you’re with us. If you aren’t a member and found our website, I urge you to come to one of our meetings and I hope you will decide to join the club. We meet twice a month on Mondays at 7 P.M. at the Torrance Airport Administration building meeting room. You can find information on specific meetings on the home page of our website

The purpose of the SBCC is to share our love of photography, to continually improve our photographic skills, and, above all, to have fun taking pictures. The club consists of photographers of all levels from the beginner to the more advanced to the professional. We all get along and share our ideas and pictures. My belief is that everyone, no matter what level, has something to learn and to share and can improve his or her skills. That is the core of the club’s philosophy.

To that end we have many different types of programs including digital and print critiques, photo shooting trips, banquets and more. Some activities, like the critiques, are ongoing throughout the year. Others, like specific subject workshops, are offered as they are organized.

Membership is only $50 per year. Membership includes two meetings per month, (except Dec. and June), digital and print workshops many months, field trips, and two annual banquets (banquet costs not included). Join us soon!

You can view the membership application HERE.

Again, if you are not a member yet, please come to a meeting and join the fun. If you have any questions about the club please email me at

I’m looking forward to a great year.

Harry Korn
South Bay Camera Club
