The Housatonic Camera Club is composed of members from communities in the tri-state area (Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York) who meet to share their love of photography, their experiences, travels, and expertise, and to educate one another and the public. Members -- beginners, advanced amateurs, and professionals -- work in prints, film, digital, color, and black & white mediums.

The Housatonic Camera Club meets the third Tuesday of the month from September through June at Noble Horizons in Salisbury, CT. The Club also offers annual programs that are open to the general public. These programs can range from exhibits and slide shows to field trips and workshops teaching the basics of photography to cutting edge technology and techniques. In the past, HCC exhibitions include the Douglas Library in Canaan, CT, the Salisbury Bank and Trust in Lakeville, CT, the Moviehouse Gallery in Millerton, NY, the Millbrook Library , NY, and Noble Horizons in Salisbury, CT.

As part of the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) and Photographic Society of America (PSA), three times a year members are encouraged to submit photos for competition within the HCC. Those chosen to go on to the next level of competition are sent to the NECCC and PSA for consideration with photographs from member New England region (NECCC) and international (PSA) camera clubs.
