About Us

Fort Worth, circa 1930, Main at 8th Avenue


The Fort Worth Camera Club was founded in 1930 with the same purpose that it now has: to promote photography as an art form and vehicle for creative expression. The club has continued to explore advances in photography from film to pixels, from Brownies to SLRs and to phones and devices of all types.

Meetings and events are open to anyone interested in photography. However,  competition is open only to members who have paid current year dues.

Dues are payable in January of each year or upon joining. Dues are $40 for individuals; $20 for students age 18 or younger. Find a PDF Membership Form 2019.

The club meets on the first and third Thursdays of each month at the University of North Texas Health Science Center, 3500 Camp Bowie Blvd., Fort Worth, Texas, 76107, in the Cultural District. Our meeting room is in the Research and Education Building at the corner of Clifton Street and Camp Bowie, across (north) from the Amon Carter Museum. We meet in Everett Hall, which is Room 100, on the lower level.
