Hart House Camera Club


Founded in 1919, we are one of North America's oldest student-run camera clubs

We offer darkroom facilities to process film and make prints as well as a digital suite for scanning and editing. We regularly host critical salons for friendly peer-to-peer critique and photo walks to get you out into the community and our flagship event. Our annual exhibition of photography is a much-loved event that's been happening for over one hundred years. Like all Hart House Clubs, membership is open to all.

If you are new to photography Hart House offers a wide variety of photography courses through our Creative LifeSchool (formerly named Creative Classes), designed to improve skills and deepen photography as a creative practice.

OPEN TO ALL! Please join our Discord to connect with our members!
