To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. 

— Elliott Erwitt

The mission of photography is to explain man to man

and each man to himself.

— Edward Steichen

The Billings Public Library has cancelled all use of their public meeting rooms until further notice. Because of this and the general call for avoiding congregating in groups, we're cancelling our April meeting. Contest results and PSA entry voting will still be posted here. We'll stay in touch!

The Billings Camera Club is the oldest, most established club of its kind in Yellowstone County. Since 1947 the BCC has supported amateur and professional photographers in their quest to create art in the capture of light.
