You don’t have to be an ‘Expert Photographer’ to be welcomed as a member of the Olympia Camera Club. All you need is an interest in photography. Our aim is to encourage you to develop your interest and skills, as well as to provide a place to meet a range of friendly people who share your interest.
Education, hands-on learning opportunities, competitions, new experiences, field trips, and friendship amongst peers with similar interests and passions are just some of the benefits of a camera club membership.
Non-members are always welcome to visit the club. Come to a couple of meetings and see what we have to offer before you decide whether to join. If you find our club to be a valuable resource, we encourage you to show your support by paying your annual membership dues.
