About the Oakland Camera Club

Stereo photography — 3-D photography — is the marvelous craft of making pictures with the illusion of depth.

The Oakland Camera Club is a San Francisco / Bay Area organization of stereo photography enthusiasts. Join us at a club meeting to learn about the art of stereo photography and experience fantastic printed and projected 3-D photos.

The Oakland Camera Club was founded in 1934 and is a member of the Photographic Society of America. The Oakland Camera Club is a non-profit organization.
