The Oshawa Camera Club is proud to be celebrating it’s 83rd anniversary, in 2021. Founded in 1938 as the General Motors Camera Club, it is one of the oldest camera clubs in Canada. The Club has been exhibiting photos since 1940 and, over the years, exhibits progressed from black and white to colour slides. Today, our Annual Photo Exhibition is a multimedia display of digital images and prints. We have 130 very talented members, with skills ranging from novice to expert. We are proud to have 2 corporate sponsors who provide us with invaluable service and knowledge: Henry’s Photo & Video and Vistek.

The OCC meets twice each month, from September to April. We hold several in-club competitions each year, which have members earning points from their submissions to compete for the ‘Photographer of the Year’ award. The Club conducts a robust educational program, with members and guest speakers providing the core of the program. We also offer club outings and workshops, which serve as both social and educational events. The OCC also competes outside our club. We are a member of the Ontario Council of Camera Clubs(OCCC).

We do have a membership cap of 130. Annual Club Fee is $65 per person. If you wish to join the club, please email our Interim Membership Director, John Madill and he would be happy to get you registered for this season. In the event we have reached capacity, you have the option to be put on a wait list. We appreciate your interest in our club and look forward to meeting you.

Meeting Location:

Woodview Club. 151 Cadillac Ave. N., Oshawa

7:00pm – 9:00pm. Times subject to change per program.

We meet regularly the second and fourth Wednesday of each month between September and May.

Please note that we have revised our guest policy. Guests are welcome to attend one meeting prior to joining the club. Going forward there will be a $10 fee for guests to attend a meeting where there is a speaker. Payment is to be made in cash at the door. For regular competition results meetings there will be no fee.  As always, where possible, please notify the membership director, G.J Baylon beforehand if you intend to come as a guest.

Note: Due to the current pandemic, our meetings have been online through ZOOM. Live meetings will commence when safe to do so.
