Who we are

     The Eastman Camera Club is part of and sponsored by the Eastman Recreation Club in Kingsport, Tennessee.   Don’t let the Eastman affiliation discourage you from joining the club.   Membership is open to anyone.  You don’t have to have a connection to Eastman to join.    Our members come from Kingsport, Bristol, Johnson City, Jonesborough – pretty much anywhere in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.

What we do

     Our goal is to bring people together who have a common interest in photography and help each other become better photographers while having a great time.   We have monthly meetings on the third Thursday of the month at 6:30 PM.  In these meetings, we try to have a speaker or program on a topic that is of interest to our members.   Sometimes this is in the form of a classroom lecture, other times we have hands on sessions where members get to try out new equipment, techniques or hone their skills.   We also plan photography day outings to regional events or locations, such as parks, sporting events, or urban areas.   We try to have a long weekend trip each year.    

     We sponsor training classes and workshops to give our members more in-depth training.   These may be taught by our members or professional photographers hired to teach a class or workshop.

     Finally, we maintain photography equipment that can be rented by our members.   Cameras, lenses, flashes, studio lights, tripods, monitor calibrators, and other items are available to rent at very reasonable prices.
