About Us

Fort Worth, circa 1930, Main at 8th Avenue

Welcome!

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, for members of all ages.

Membership is open to anyone interested in learning about photography; dues are payable in January of each year or upon joining. Dues are $40 for individuals; $20 for students age 18 or younger.

Competition is open to members who have paid current year dues. An annual competition also is held with the Dallas Camera Club.

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.
