3CT CAMERA CLUB COUNCIL OFFICERS & DIRECTORS

For 2018

The Camera Club Council of Tennessee (3CT) is the umbrella organization for twenty-two Camera Clubs in Tennessee and Alabama. And, it has fully embraced the culture and spirit of developing a sustainable organization statewide in Tennessee and surrounding states. 

The 3CT provides an opportunity to grow photographically and compete at an interclub level. Most individual members' clubs hold their own local monthly judged competitions.

Board Officers and Directors establish the Council's overall purpose and strategy, which provides many opportunities to connect their duties with the Council's culture.  The 3CT's culture is driven by our Ethos "Created to Foster a Spirit of Fellowship, Sharing, and Competitiveness Among Member Clubs."

Martin Fish

Treasurer
Martin retired after 30+ years as a civilian employee in the Information Technology Directorate of the U.S. Coast Guard. Martin and his wife moved to the Chattanooga area in 2017, so Tennessee is still quite new to them. Martin likes to photograph anything but likes human portraiture the least. He likes to take photographs but does not exhibit them or compete much, due to his inexperience with the numerous options in Photoshop. Right now, he is using a Nikon DSLR but is thinking that mirrorless might be in his future.
