The Camera Club of the Philippines is the oldest photography society in the Philippines (established in 1928). They are a non-profit organization composed of members from varying backgrounds … students, professionals, executives, businessmen, doctors, lawyers, professional photographers, as well as retired folks. As of 2014, the club has 90 regular members, 40 lifetime members (or members who have been with the club for more than 25 years) and 13 probationary members.
Through mutual fellowship, they strive to encourage excellence, appreciation and enjoyment of Photography. They meet every first Monday of the month at Rockwell Club in Makati City. They hold 13 competitions in a 9 month calendar, 4 of which are outdoor photo shoots held anywhere in the country. For the past 6 years or so, they added one optional international location to this competition where members and their family join to enjoy the sights and company of each other.
