Eight of the club members of the local ‘Creative Imagers Camera Club’ will display their work at the Community Room of the Wood Library from July 27th thru September 3rd.

The Creative Imagers Camera Club is a group of local photographers of various skill levels who have in common a love of taking pictures, and a desire to share their work. The Creative Imagers all have unique styles, and this will be apparent and appreciated in the wide variety of subjects — landscapes, nature, people, modern life, art and architecture — and the wide variety of approaches. The club has met and collaborated regularly for 14 years.

There will be a Photographers Reception and Public Presentation on photography techniques on Wednesday, August 6th at 6:30 PM in the Community Room of the library.  This reception is free and open to the public.

About the Club:
For 14 years the club has been meeting in Canandaigua once every month to share photos, learn about cameras, study many photographic techniques and post-processing skills, and encourage one another.  Our meetings have both guest speakers as well as presenters from within the club.  Field trips have been made to such places as the the Renaissance Festival, Genesee Country Village and Museum and the Sonnenberg Gardens.  Projects have included thematic summer scavenger hunts for photos, darkroom activities, Scrabble photo searches, and group experiments with camera settings.  We have for several years had exhibits at Wood Library, and last year a display at The Legacy at Fairways in Victor.  Twice a year, members and their spouses have special get-togethers.  We have a summer barbecue picnic in July and a Christmas dinner and theme photo critiquing party in December.

Sky and Tower and Sky5x7
The Creative Imagers meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 7 PM at Metamorphosis, too!, 185 South Main Street, Canandaigua, NY 14424.  Creative Imagers is always happy to accept new members.  For information, speak with any of us at the reception on August 6th at the Library.  You may send us an e-mail us at if you are interested in attending one of our regular meeting.
