The Ballarat Camera Club Inc. aims to provide opportunities for members to learn about and improve their photography, regardless of their level of competence.
Since its establishment in 1938, members of the Ballarat Camera Club Inc. have encouraged and inspired each other in their photographic pursuits and personal growth.
Depending on the needs of members, committee and key club members organise a variety of activities which facilitate the learning of the many aspects of photography.
Through participating in monthly digital club meetings, judging nights, workshops and outings, members can learn new skills and understandings, such as; how to operate their camera, understand light, process images on the computer. Members have the opportunity to seek feedback on their work and view the work of fellow photographers during these activities.
The Ballarat Camera Club is affiliated with the Victorian Association of Photographic Societies Inc. (VAPS), which allows members to be involved in the wider photographic community in Victoria, including conferences and interclub competitions.
The “Ballarat National Photographic Exhibition” has been proudly run by the Ballarat Camera Club Inc. since 1968. This exhibition is held in high regards within photographic circles across Australia and is hung in the prestigious ‘Art Gallery of Ballarat’.
We invite you to browse our website and the galleries within. We hope it inspires you and look forward to welcoming you at one of our activities in the near future!
Please contact one of our friendly committee members should you wish to join us on one of our activities.
