About us

Look for us on facebook  https://www.facebook.com/Castlemainecameraclub/

Castlemaine Camera Club meets on the first Tuesday of the month at the Salvation Army hall at 47 Kennedy St Castlemaine (next door to the train station) starting at 7:30pm.  We have guest speakers, competition judging nights and members’ forums on topics of interest.

From January to May, and from September to November we have a second meeting on the third Tuesday of the month.  These are generally more hands-on, and may be shoots or workshops covering subjects such as mounting prints, studio lights and audio visual presentations.

We currently have around 20 members.  We would love to boost our numbers to include more of the many enthusiastic photographers in Castlemaine and surrounds,  and to have the capacity to offer more activities.  Visitors are very welcome at all our club activities.

Recently we have been invited to take photos at community events such as Relay for Life, Mountain Bike events and Newstead Live. We have also exhibited in the Phee Broadway Theatre foyer.

We have a members-only community facebook page and the public page https://www.facebook.com/Castlemainecameraclub/  where we post club news and notices of upcoming activities.

The earliest information found so far is a news paper clipping from 1937. The article states that the club was taking a break due to the second world war.

Throughout the 1960s the club held national photographic competitions  in conjunction with the Castlemaine Art Gallery. We still have some programs and images that were entered into these competitions.
