Welcome to Assabet Valley Camera Club

Assabet Valley Camera Club, established in 1985 as a Hudson-based photography organization, meets the 1st. and 3rd. Wednesday of the month from September through May. The first meeting of the month generally features a program designed to instruct and/or to entertain camera enthusiasts.  During the second monthly meeting, member digital image competitions are judged and critiqued by qualified individuals. 

Due to Covid-19 all AVCC meetings are currently being held online. Normally, AVCC meetings take place in the Great Room at the Hudson Senior Center, 29 Church Street, Hudson, and officially begin at 7:30 PM. (Online meetings start at 7:00.)  

AVCC welcomes anyone interested in learning more about photography as a visual art and its practical application as a science.  Members benefit from the hands-on experiences, from the knowledge presented in programs, and from having their work critiqued.

Assabet Valley Camera Club, a member of both the New England Camera Club Council and the Photographic Society of America, also participates in interclub competitions on regional, national and international levels.  Members of various ages with a diversity of experience currently hail from over fifteen different communities in the surrounding area.

Anyone interested in photography and expanding their pictorial skills is welcome to attend a club meeting.

On Wednesday, October 5, the Assabet Valley Camera Club (AVCC) is pleased to host Jim DeLuco whose photographic career started more than fifty years ago after purchasing his first 35mm camera while stationed in Vietnam. Over the years Jim has been a member of both the Colonial and Gateway Camera Clubs and has received pictorial and nature awards from the New England Camera Club Council. The prior owner of DeLuco Photography which specialized in portraits, weddings and events, Jim now spends his leisure time photographing birds in Massachusetts and at Florida hotspots.

In addition to being called upon to judge at local camera clubs, Jim provides instructional classes to area photographers. DeLuco’s October 5th presentation will feature a large variety of bird photographs with special consideration given to the techniques needed for capturing their images including photographing birds in flight.
