The Dublin Camera Club is headquartered in a dedicated three storey premises in Lower Camden Street, which provides a fully equipped darkroom, a fully equipped studio and an exhibition gallery.

 The club has recently carried out work on the clubhouse in Camden Street. This includes the installation of a modern fire alarm system throughout the building, fire extinguishers on each floor, PAT testing of all portable electrical items, removal of hazards, and providing a signed exit egress route from the building.


The club has a fully equipped darkroom which members can book and use once the probationary period of membership has been completed. It is equipped for both colour and black & white, with 35mm and medium format enlargers capable of modification for medium format.  The darkroom carries a full range of ancillary equipment so that members only need paper, chemicals, negatives and...patience!


The club boasts a fully-equipped Studio on the top floor, which has backdrops, lights, soft-boxes, reflectors and remotes for booking by any member for non-commercial work.  The studio is fully equipped with Bowens flash units and ancilliaries. A variety of background materials are also available. Members must attend a studio introductory course and have a basic competence of using studio equipment before using the studio.


The ground floor meeting room of the headquarters doubles as the Eddie Chandler Gallery. As well as providing a showcase for the best work of the members of the club, the club extends invitations to the best national and international fine art photographers to exhibit. Exhibitions normally run for a period of four to six weeks and the gallery opens on Saturdays from 11am to 5pm and, whenever possible, on weekdays during the summer months.

Dublin Camera Club boasts a gallery space which can display 30 framed 20”x16” images on the walls, as well as images in the window.  This space doubles as the club's meeting room which can seat 30 people comfortably, display digital images via the calibrated projector, or display twenty 20”x16” prints on the bespoke panels


The club hosts numerous workshops throughout the year, where members pass-on their expertise to other members. 

The Novice Workshop is held once a month on a Monday evening at 7:30. Members submit images on a theme which are critiqued and sometimes adjusted in Photoshop to illustrate a point.  For the first-time ever in the history of the club, the Novices put on their own exhibition early in 2016. 

The club also hosts a Skills Workshop, where members showcase a sill they've learned as well as a Distinctions Workshop to assist members in preparing panels for photographic distinctions. There are also vibrant and well-established Nature, Street Photography and Studio portrait groups.  Full details of these are to be found under the  "What's On" menu.
