Our members have experience ranging from beginner to professional. We create our images using colour prints, monochrome prints, digital images and slides which can be scanned into digital images. The club is a forum for sharing and expressing our appreciation of photography. Some of our members produce their work using digital cameras, computers and printers. We have our own club computer and film scanner which are available to all our members. We also have our own studio lighting which is used for club organised portraiture We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month (see syllabus). The first monthly meeting is usually a photography related presentation by a visitor and the second our monthly competition which is evaluated by an accredited judge. Visitors are most welcome to attend on both presentation and competition nights, especially those who are interested in seeing what a photographic club is all about.

We meet at 7:30pm

A special grading committee will be held before the first competition. If you want to apply for promotion, then you need to do the following: For Colour Print or Monochrome Prints: Supply 6 Colour Prints and/or 6 Monochrome prints. For Projected Image: A gallery has been created – see Grading Gallery Load your 6 digital images into this gallery.

    Thanks for that, Colin. It’s done.

    The site is showing great promise with its information on competitions and members galleries. It would be good if more experienced members could pass on information on how their “Best Photos” were taken and processed, to help others improve their work.

    The blurb says we meet on the first and third Tuesdays but some of the meetings are now on other Tuesdays.

  5. Kerry Boytell says:

    Yes it does say that, because for about 20 years our meetings have always been held on those nights, and that is what we expected to get from the leagues club. However when we went to book, we found the new secretary had given away some of our nights without consulting our club first. So unfortunately we have had to take what nights were available. So in Feb, June and July the nights are the 2nd and 4th, and there is a Mon. night in Nov. as that was all there was. Sorry for the confusion, and please check the actual online syllabus before the expected night.
