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. Those categories are:

  • Pensioners – for applicants who are recipients of a Commonwealth Government pension;
  • Student – for applicants who are over 18 years of age and under 25 years of age AND full time students ;
  • Family – for applicants who are the domestic partner or child of a member, and live at the member’s address;
  • Country – for applicants who permanently reside more than 40km from the Club rooms.

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.

Current subscriptions rates are:

Ordinary membership $185
Concessional membership $120
Transfer from Provisional membership                      $120
