Tuesday 13th February

  • This is judging night for the set subject “Still-Life”. The judge will be Graham Anderson.
  • Entries are due for the first AV of the year. Open subject no more than 5 minutes. The judge will be John Spring from the Melbourne Camera Club.
  • Also membership subs of $40.00 per person are due.

Tuesday 20th February

  • Club member Matt Oliver will discuss Infrared Photography plus Matt will also show a short 10 minute Audio Visual on his recent trip to Namibia.


These currently cost $14.20 (Australian) per month ($2,385.60 over 14 years which is how long I have been in the Camera Club), which is getting quite expensive.

However you now have a competitive cheaper option called AFFINITY PHOTO which only costs $79.99 (Australian) with no additional costs. Check it out and read the reviews which are all good.


Although we got off to a very slow start, profit for the day was just under $700.00. Thanks to all those who helped, particularly Val Densworth (Club Secretary) who buys drinks etc while on “special”.


This major club event will run over 3 days commencing on Good Friday which is the 30th of March.

You will shortly receive an email which will include exact details. But start thinking about your prints. Club members will have a maximum of two boards to display their work, some members may only want one board. You can also include a profile of yourself.

You should be able to fit three vertical A3 images per board or four horizontal A3 images on a board. Or six A4’s per board.

NB – As in the past each club members “board position” will be randomly picked out of a hat.

We will also run Digital Images (on a TV with music) in the back room of Dudley House. These images will be chosen from those already held on the club laptop.

If you DON”T want your Digital Images shown please contact Allan Davis (Newsletter Editor) ASAP.

Assuming that some boards may be placed along the front/ rear walls there should be 34 boards available for members to display their work. Therefore only 17 members will be able to display their work unless some members only want one board. So get in early (after you receive the above-mentioned email) as there will be a cut-off date of 28th February 2018. This will then allow the committee to put together the catalogue etc.
