Our 175 members meet in Rockville, MD on most Wednesdays from September through May.  We strive to challenge members with stimulating monthly competitions, educational programs, exhibits, field trips, an annual photo essay show, and a monthly newsletter, the Lens and Eye.

As one of the oldest camera clubs in the Washington, DC area, we are recognized locally and nationally for a wide range of photographic expertise.  We are a proud member of Maryland Photography Alliance,  Photographic Society of America, and Mid-Atlantic Photo Visions (formerly Nature Visions).​

We invite you to explore this site to learn more about NBCC. If you have questions, please   Contact Us.
