Applications for membership are now closed for 2018/19. We have a constitutional limit of 65 members - anyone successful or otherwise will hear from the Club Secretary as soon as possible. Thank you for your interest.


We meet on Wednesday evenings from 7.30 - 10.00pm and Annual Membership is now£50.00. The Club is affiliated to both NIPA in the North, and the IPF in the South, and is the only club that competes in the Top Club Competition in both jurisdictions.

Catchlight Camera Club are the current Irish National Champions, winning the top colour, top mono and Top overall at Mullingar in May 2018 for the second year in a row. We are also the current FIAP World Champion Camera Club, and will be hosting the 2018 World Cup this year.
The Club meets in the large hall at Finaghy Community Centre, Benmore Drive, off Finaghy Road South on a Wednesday evening from 7.30 to 10pm from September to May each year.

The Club functions as a small and friendly Camera Club, comprising all levels from Beginners to Advanced. We aim to help beginners improve; to assist anyone interested in obtaining Distinctions; and to generally improve the standard of everyone's photography. Members are encouraged to help one another with regards to all aspects of their photography, in a collective spirit of 'one for all, and all for one.' Photography is meant to be fun, and although we are a competitive club, we have a very friendly group of members who are encouraged to help each other and provide assistance to all members.
