About Us

W.D.Smith Studio Enlarger 1940s


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, monthly competition is open only to members who have paid current year dues.

Meetings are on the first and third Thursday of each month, usually from 7 to 9 p.m. Meeting are available on Zoom for those who are unable to attend in person. Login credentials for each meeting are published on this site and/or Facebook.

Dues are payable in January or upon joining. Dues are $40 for individuals; $20 for students age 18 or younger. Dues are reduced by half on July 1.  Download a membership enrollment form with instructions: PDF 2021 Membership Enrollment.
