Short-lived local club known only from a couple of brief newspaper reports. In early November 1903, it was reported that this club had recently been formed. Its main purpose was to initiate beginners in photography and it was announced that the club would organise practical demonstrations, lectures and events with projections, excursions and exhibitions (Le Matin, 2.11.1903). Meetings at the "Salle Apollon" at this address as follows: session on colour photography with a demonstration by O. Benedeck of Brussels on 24.11.1904; slide-show by Louis Van Neck on a voyage from Antwerp to Pretoria on 26.11.1904; demonstration of papers and supplies by engineer Block on 15.12.1904. The club moved to a new venue, "Café du Robinet", from 19.1.1905.
