Our Mission

The club's goals are to continue education and interest in photography, provide charitable services in the community, and establish a forum for open discussion and sharing of photographic accomplishments in a friendly environment.

History of Our Club

In December 1975, Dr. Owen C. Berg organized the "Temple Camera Club" as an affiliate of the Cultural Activities Center in Temple; also, this club from its beginning was a member of the Photographic Society of America. Dr. Berg was a medical doctor on the staff of the V.A. Medical Center in Temple. He was a "Fellow" of the PSA and a "Diamond Star" exhibitor in color. He was a nationally recognized photographer and judge.  Bob Chaison of Temple was elected the first president of the club. In 1977, the name of the club was changed to the "Central Texas Photographic Society"; in 1993, the club became the "Central Texas Camera Club"; and in 2005, the name became the "Central Texas Photographic Club".


Membership is open to anyone at any skill level. Photography is about fun and learning with fellow photographers. Expensive cameras --not required. Annual dues are collected to help defray the cost of our meeting room --contact any member.
