Organized in 1935, the Olympia Camera Club (OCC) resides at the Southern most tip of Washington State’s Puget Sound.
Our objective is to share the creative spirit supported by knowledge and technique.
We cheerfully welcome all visitors and new members.
While practicing the fine art of photography, the Olympia Camera Club aims at the heart of the creative spirit for personal gratification and enjoyment.
The Olympia Camera Club sponsors and hosts: The Annual Photography Exhibit at the Thurston County Fair, which is held during July/August of each year.

The idea of the Council originated with the Olympia Camera Club in 1940 as an outgrowth of its annual regional exhibit, The Olympia Salon of Photography. Advice and assistance was given by Lt. Ernest Featherstone, who had been active in the formation of the Southern California Council of Camera Clubs. Lt. Featherstone provided a copy of the Bylaws of the SCCCC for reference.
As a member of the Northwest Council of Camera Clubs (NWCCC), the Olympia Camera Club participates in the exchange of photos with other camera clubs in the Pacific Northwest.
