Monthly Photowalk Community

The MCC Monthly Photowalk Community typically meets on the first or second Sunday afternoon of the month (from February to November).

This community comprises of  a good cross-section of members of the Melbourne Camera Club and the general photographic community.  The aim of our  events is to have some fun while pursuing our passion for photography and developing our social networks with like-minded individuals.

Typically we walk, talk, take photographs, have refreshments and each walk culminates with an informal dinner/drinks where photographers can get to socialise with one another and compare the day's photos.

Most of our photowalk events are between 3-6 hrs (including dinner), if you are short on time you are welcome to come along for the walk only.

Non member visitors and friends are most welcome to join in these photowalks.

Details of up coming photowalks are posted on this website and also on the MCC Facebook page.
