  • What Our Club Presidents Say..

    Local Camera Club Presidents know the value of 3CT!

  • joe-green-2

    Joe Green

    Past President, Lawrenceburg Photography Society

As Eve Arnold said, "It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument."  The 3CT is a driving force to assist local club members to become better instruments of photography.  If you are a member of a local club, and the club doesn't belong to 3CT, I highly recommend you join immediately.

    Pat Gordy

    Past President (2019), Photographic Society of Chattanooga

3CT helps local club members change and become better photographers. Your local club should be a club member of 3CT, and I encourage you to ask your club leaders for your club to join.
