Join Us

The Melbourne Camera Club offers a vibrant community of photographic enthusiasts keen to improve their own photography and learn more about photography as an art form. New members are always welcome.

Members enjoy unlimited access to its meetings, competitions and events (see What’s On) and weekly email newsletter. Members also have the opportunity to hire and use the Club’s darkroom, studio and lighting equipment for a nominal fee.

The initial membership subscription covers 12 months membership from joining date. The next renewal will be for a pro-rata period to the next 31 December.

As well as ‘Ordinary membership’, the Club offers a range of ‘Concessional membership’ categories at a reduced subscription rate.

Applicants seeking a Concessional membership will need to provide evidence of their entitlement to the concession. Currently we do not accept applicants under 18 years.

Additionally, the Club offers a reduced first year membership rate for Provisional members (people who have completed the Club’s Introduction to Photography Course) taking up Ordinary membership.
