Welcome

Established more than 40 years ago, the Williamstown Camera Club includes residents of Williamstown, Newport, Altona, Laverton, Footscray and adjacent suburbs. There are 22 meetings per year in which members can develop their photographic skills, socialise with others interested in photography and to engage in friendly competition with the aim of becoming better photographers.

Meetings
The Club meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 7:45pm at
Walker Close Community Centre,
180 Millers Road,
Altona North.

See the calendar for meeting dates.

Come along and join us!

Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.
