    Camera Clubs

    Are you a member of your local Camera Club?

    If you would like to post the details here, so other members in your area can look it up. Feel free.

    Please put the Town and State at the top of your post so other members can quickly scan the posts to find a relevant club near them

    Not exactly what you ask there, but if I may... I am involved in setting one up in our neighbourhood. Just wondering what type of activities are most wanted, so if that could be added I would be grateful!
    Ciao, Joost

    All feedback is highly appreciated!

    Joost, just thought it would be good to have a thread listing the camera clubs in members areas. I know a lot of AP members are also active in their local club, and some even have AP listed as a link on their websites.

    So please post info about yours Joost.

    Berri, SA.. Riverland Camera Club

    Riverland Camera Club is rather small - about 15 active members - but meets twice a month (1st & 3rd) Tuesdays, 7-45pm, at Berri Primary School. We have some very experienced photographers and photoshop users, and a few absolute newbies!
    All visitors welcome to any meeting.
    We have a variety of activities including inter-club competitions (we win our share), and occasional field trips on weekends.

    Photoclub Vathorst (name is not fixed yet), Amersfoort, the Netherlands

    We're just starting, first official meeting sunday june 7. Planning to meet once or twice per month, 24 potential members now (we don't accept members until we've got a suitable indoor meeting-place and have an okay from the official Dutch photofederation).

    Average age of members: I'm guessing 35 or so. This is the main reason for starting this club... we've got another club here in the city but that mainly consists of members well in retirement (65+) that don't connect well with "young" and eager digital togs.

    Most members are just starting in photography (another reason not to join the existing club) and they're mainly seeking knowledge and just enjoying social interactivity whilst doing their thing.

    Activities will include:
    - workshops (planned: introduction, studio, portrait, system-flash, postprocessing)
    - presenting and critiquing
    - meeting and photographing together, possibly group based ("field trips" as well as specialized working groups)
    - visiting of expositions, festivals and tradeshows
    - longer term: competitions and expositions

    The reason for asking to list the activities your clubs organize is that most clubs here do the same things all in a similar way whilst it would be nice to have something completely different. For example: how do you guys organize critique sessions - is that based on prints, does your club use a beamer or perhaps even something different? If you've got an exposition, does the club provide frames and mattes? Do you print yourself and bring that or does the club do all the printing? That's the sort of information I'm after...

    Not specifically a camera club:

    http://www.wanats.iinet.net.au/photography.html

    It's the adopted photographic branch of the WANATS [West. Aust. Naturalists Club]. You don't have to photograph flora or fauna to come along, natural landscapes will do!

    I'm happy to take AP members along as a guest if they are interested in attending an event or meeting night. We have a some outstanding published (continuously) photographers and a very varied membership. The group is non-competitive (not comps). You can show any of you work each night or event.

    I thoroughly enjoy every contact I have with this group.

    I have just joined The Yarra Ranges Photographic Society and have been to one photo comp meet, with a guest speaker and a workshop on exposure all in one week

    They have regular guest speakers, photo comps and trips and also have a Redbubble Group.
    I am sure they would welcome any one else that's new to photography, like me, or anyone with experience, with a warm reception like I received.
    I'm glad I have joined as I've learnt heaps already and can't wait for the next meeting

    Welcome to AP Bob, good looking site for the camera club you have , can't see a link there to AP yet but I am sure you can fix that within a couple of minutes.

    Saw this thread and thought I would put up the details of the club I belong to:

    Western Australian Underwater Photographic Society (WAUPS)

    We meet the fourth Tuesday of every month in the Games Room (out near the pool) of the Indian Ocean Hotel/Motel, 27 Hasting St Scarborough WA. Currently we have approx 45 members and looking for more. You don't have to be interested in underwater photography only as we enjoy all types.

    Hi we have a Photography Club at the University of Melbourne which is open to all. I think we're the largest University Photography Club in Victoria, but of course you don't have to be a Uni student to join, we have many members from the general public.

    http://www.fotoholics.org/

    Membership is a bit costly ($12 per year) but the good news is you don't have to be a member to come to events, though you do have to be a member to use the Equipment Rental Service, to get Discounts at Harvey Norman, other sponsors etc. Also I guess members get discounts to the rare events that cost money to come to.
