The club conducts meetings regularly in North Adelaide with competitions, practicals, workshops and social weekends planned. Visitors to the club are always welcome. Please feel free to drop in one night .
Meetings are held at the rear of 176 Tynte Street, North Adelaide (behind the North Adelaide Library and alongside the North Adelaide Post Office) on the second, fourth and fifth Tuesday of each month (excluding Jan & Dec) and typically start at 7:30pm.
Each year the committee tries to make a programme that caters for all it's members. There are workshops and field trips to improve your photographic skills, talks from experienced photographers and competitions for those who are inclined. We encourage all members to enter our monthly competitions, as these are good forums to hear constructive appraisals of your work from independent judges. Please refer to the current programme for details and our page on how to prepare images and submit them for competition.
In 2017 the Club entered the FIAP (Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique) Clubs' World Cup competition. There were clubs from 41 countries, who between them submitted over 2,000 images for judging. The Adelaide Camera Club gained a creditable 20th position in a field of 201 clubs who participated.
If you are interested in joining the club, then please come along to any of the meetings at the clubrooms and take a look. Introduce yourself to any of the committee members (they will be wearing committee badges) and they will be pleased to answer any questions that you have.

What is happening in April 2019
Tues 23 April: Workshop: 7:30pm at the North Adelaide Community Centre. Chris Woods will be speaking on the subject of smartphone photography, which will be in part an introduction to the use of photo-editing apps. If this is new to you and you would like to have a go you can download one or two free apps before the night and we can have a play after the talk!
The apps he will be dealing with are Snapseed (a Google product) and Adobe Photoshop Express which is free but requires you to have an Adobe ID. Both are available for Android and Apple phones. (Bring your smartphone)
