To promote and pursue the art of photography
to be a creative outlet for its members
to set standards and not to conform to them

The Camera Club of Johannesburg has been in existence since 1935, celebrating its 80th anniversary during 2015.  Over this time the club has built itself a reputation for being "different" in that it encourages photographers to treat photography as an “art form” as opposed to  merely taking good pictures.  Affectionately known as CCJ the club is an affiliated member of the Photographic Society of South Africa (PSSA).  The Club Information Brochure in PDF format can be downloaded here.  The club comprises a Projected Images Section and a Print Section.  The Viewfinder, a newsletter containing interesting articles and information, is circulated to members monthly.  Currently all meetings are held at 7:30pm in the hall at King Edward Vll School in Upper Houghton.
                                                  Visitors are welcome to attend our meetings.

The Projected Images Section meets at 7:30pm on the first and third Monday of each month (unless rescheduled due to public  or religious holidays).  A schedule of the 2017 meeting dates can be downloaded here.   CCJ has strict requirements regarding the formatting and submission of digital images for the projected images meetings. See the Digital Submissions Document  (also available under the Club Documents tab) for details.

The  Print Section,  meets on the second Monday of each month (also unless rescheduled due to pulbic or religious holidays).  A schedule of the 2017 meeting dates can be downloaded here
