The modern logo of the Dubuque Camera Club consists of the stylized shape of a camera with DCC, the club initials, in the center. The blue area represents the Mississippi River. The yellow-gold represents sunrise on the blufftops. The curve at the top repeats the curve of the iconic Julien Dubuque bridge. This logo was designed  in 2013 by club member and photographer Nate Roling.
