About us
Who we are

The Cudgegong Camera Club was first established in 2008 and currently has 37 members.


Each month we enjoy a varied and stimulating programme of guest speakers, photographic competitions, practical and creative sessions as well as a valuable exchange of ideas with each other.


Our membership varies widely in terms of age and experience, from beginners to professional photographers who shoot both film and digital.


From time to time the club will organise an outing, which could be at any time of the day - depending on the photographic conditions. For further details of these outings please refer to our program page.




Our Aim

The aim of the club is to broaden the photographic interests of its members, and to provide education, guidance, competition and social interaction in a friendly, relaxed and informal environment.

The club is a non profit organisation run by volunteers who all have a passion for photography.

Visitors are always welcome at our club, and bookings are not necessary. We would love to see you, so please feel free to attend any night you wish.

What our members say
  • Cudgegong Camera Club provides a friendly environment where you can learn more about your camera's capabilities and how to use it more effectively.

    Knowledge and experience are willingly shared to help you become a better photographer.
    Heather Rushton
  • Since becoming a member of the Cudgegong Camera Club two years ago, I have enjoyed experiences outside with my camera that I would not have experienced by sitting at home in my lounge room.

    It has been a great way to meet new people who have the same interests as me. Each month we focus on a new topic which are ideas from members interests.

    I have found it’s been a great way to learn new skills and ideas to help improve my photography.
