Established in 1961, the Scarborough Camera Club (SCC) embraces many photographic forms and categories, including digital, print, monochrome, colour, audio/visual presentations (slideshows), etc.
Club members range from complete novices to professionally experienced photographers. Club members use a diverse set of equipment from nearly all manufacturers, ranging from cell phone cameras to top quality photographic equipment. Membership in the club does not require experience nor expensive equipment.
Workshops and demonstrations are organized and presented by club members to help others improve their knowledge and skills, and the club invites a number of speakers every year. Presentations, workshops, demonstrations, and outings embrace diverse styles of photography, including Landscapes, Street, Portraiture, Nature, Pet, Wildlife, etc. The possibilities are only limited by the member’s imagination.
Presentations are balanced with the exhibition of members’ images entered in the club’s competitions and other informal members’ evenings. The meetings are full of informed and helpful comments to help improve and stimulate your photographic skills, regardless of current ability.
We also arrange a number of interesting and informal photo shoots/outings throughout the year at a variety of different locations for members.

Due to the current Covid pandemic, we will unfortunately not be conducting physical meetings at our usual location. This year’s program will be a combination of virtual on-line meetings using Zoom software and outings maintaining physical distancing.
From September to May, there will be two Zoom meetings held per month on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month covering a variety of topics consisting of:
- Member nights
- Photo evaluations
We also intend to have 1 outing each month. The location and set up of each outing will be done in accordance with social distancing requirements stipulated at the time by the various health departments and levels of government.
Please review the SCC Google Calendar regularly as event times and locations (where appropriate) are subject to change as the itinerary and pandemic restrictions fluctuate.
We are looking forward to seeing you both on Zoom and at the outings.
Membership is required to participate in SCC activities.
Potential members are always welcomed to attend one or two meetings prior to making a decision to join.
