Open House Melbourne 2020

Welcome to Melbourne Camera Club!

The Melbourne Camera Club is a vibrant community of photographic enthusiasts run by volunteers who donate their time in making the club rewarding for all members.

The club has its own 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!
