The aim of the Creative Camera Club is to give both amateur and professional photographers, of all ages, the opportunity to share ideas, to discuss their mutual interest in photography in a social atmosphere and to improve their photography.

We are a small interactive community of seriously enthusiastic and committed photographers, meeting monthly to share their work and have it independently judged in an attempt to raise their standards of image making. In so doing, they aim to develop their interests, visions, imaginations and camera skills to levels of creative excellence that make their photographs outstanding and memorable.

The Club was launched in November 2002 and since its inception, the club has proven to be both entertaining and informative. We believe that the club will continue to grow from strength to strength.

Come and join the Creative Camera Club, Cape Town if :

  • you would like to move on from snapshots
  • your photography is in the doldrums
  • you need a new challenge or
  • perhaps you would like to make some new friends with similar interests.

Prospective new members are welcome to attend our meetings (you may attend one meeting and one shoot before deciding if you wish to join).

If you would have any further queries about the club please contact the Chairman on email at chairman@creativecameraclub.co.za

Photographers are encouraged to leave the EXIF information with the image, as some of the judges are able to give technical feedback having seen this information.
