Community – Engagement and Support

Melbourne Camera Club is actively involved within both the local community and across the wider photographic community.  This engagement covers providing courses and materials, using our expertise to help with projects and opening up the MCC building for community activities. The scope of this can be seen below.

Eco-Friendly and Alternative Process Resources

The Analogue Photography Group has been working on sharing the information and knowledge of members on both Eco-friendly photography practice and the Alternative Processes area. To this end web pages are being developed for sharing with others in the photographic community. The following set of links will be updated as new material is created.
