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. For directions click on the Find/Contact Us tab.

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).
