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), a weekly email newsletter, and the Club’s quarterly magazine, Exposure. 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 one calendar year. 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.

To join, fill out an Application for Membership which can be downloaded here or picked up at the Club.

Completed “Application for Membership” forms can be delivered in person at a Thursday meeting, mailed to our postal address shown below, or emailed to the Treasurer.

Payments can be made in cash, cheque or an electronic funds transfer or direct bank deposit.

Credit Card & EFTPOS are currently not available.

For electronic funds transfers or direct bank deposit our bank details are given on the right.

If you make payment by electronic funds transfer or direct deposit, please send an email to the Treasurer with details of the date of the deposit, the amount and include who the payment is for in the reference for the transaction.
