The Para Camera Club Incorporated is one of the largest and most successful camera clubs in South Australia.

Formed in 1972, the Club draws membership from the northern Adelaide suburbs. The original name of The Elizabeth Camera Club was later changed to The Para District Photographic Society to encompass a wider geographic area and changed again in 2008 to reflect the changing times and a more modern approach by the Club.

The aim of the club is to assist and encourage the members to a higher standard of photography by organising activities such as competitions, field trips, instructional workshops, Interclub Competitions, guest speakers and social outings

The Club embraces both film and digital based photography recognising that it is the skill of the photographer that creates the image not necessarily the type or cost of the equipment. We encourage and assist members to develop competent technical skills and combine them with artistic and composition skills in the creation and presentation of their photographic images.

We are a friendly and supportive group with a good depth of skills and knowledge. There is always somebody within the Club who can assist or guide you with whatever photographic issue you may have.

We encourage anybody interested in improving his or her photography to come along to our next meeting, you will be made most welcome. All you need to bring with you is your enthusiasm for photography and be prepared to enjoy yourself.
