The Camberwell Camera Club was established as a community organisation in 1953 through the interest of a number of local residents.
To find out about the history of our club read the History of Camberwell Camera Club compiled by Matt Moore.
We offer opportunities for you to display your work or enter into competitions with other club members. Many members also enter National and International competitions. But if the photographic side of your life is just enjoying others images, then so be it! Whatever you choose we are sure you will enjoy your photography more with us.
Our monthly meetings provide a vehicle for members to show their best work in the print and projected image categories. Guest speakers and judges are a feature of most of these gatherings, covering a wide range of photographic subjects. There is no charge for visitors who are always welcome to attend.
The Audio-visual group covers the latest trends and methods of creating AVs.
The Digital group meets on the third Monday of even numbered months. This group covers computer based photography including scanning, image correction, digital manipulation, and digital camera operation.
The Portrait group meets on an irregular basis.
Mid-week outings are normally held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month (no outing in June, October).
The Workshop Group does not have specific meeting times but has an emphasis on practising photographic skills via hands on workshops or outings.
There are normally two mid week photographic outings each month; one run by Camberwell, and the other run by the Melbourne Camera Club.
Through the association with VAPS and the Photographic Society, many of our members have gained national and even international recognition with numerous awards and honours.
There are five memorial end-of-year trophies, two memorial aggregate trophies and one special end-of-year trophy honouring the lives and work of members. The club has a concise monthly newsletter called Shutterbugs which details items of interest, up-to-date news reports and notices of special activities and meetings.
Joining fee: $10. Individual member: $60. Family membership: $75. Student: $25.
