About Us

We acknowledge the Yalukut Weelam Clan of the Boon Wurrung people on whose land the Melbourne Camera Club and building stands today. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.

The Melbourne Camera Club is a friendly, dynamic, non profit photography club situated in South Melbourne.

In 2021, we celebrated the 130th Anniversary of the Club.

We are 131 years young in 2022.

The club owns its facilities and is able to provide members with a diverse range of services including a gallery, studio and a darkroom.

The club aims to assist and encourage individuals in their creative photographic pursuits.  We encourage the transfer of skills and the interchange of ideas through meeting, workshops and field work.

There are a variety of special interest groups ranging from high level digital through to analogue work. These groups meet regularly and are very welcoming of new attendees.

We have Print and Electronic Digital Image competitions, a busy Exhibition program, and also generate a weekly e-newsletter for members.

Visitors are welcome to attend meetings and Club events – check out What’s On.

The club engages in a number of Community-based activities. These range from specialist courses to pro-bono consulting work on photographic issues.

We look forward to meeting you!
