Welcome

Our club’s aim is to foster an interest in and the enjoyment of photography.  We do this through competitions, workshops, lectures, outings and meetings with other camera clubs.

Our members are all keen amateur photographers. Their photographic interests may vary – landscape, portraiture, sporting, abstract, etc.,  but they all share a passion for capturing great images, improving their skills and techniques and sharing their knowledge and experiences with other members.  Some examples of our members’ recent photos appear on this page.

Would you like to improve your photography?

Our Club meets monthly in a friendly, informal atmosphere.  If you’d like to join – or just see how we operate – come along to one of our meetings. We meet at 7.30pm on the 3rd and 5th Tuesday of each month at the Mount Colah Community Centre, Pierre Close, Mount Colah.

HHCC – Selecting a previous photo online for the competition

Hi All,

A few people are having issues using the “select from a previously uploaded photo” feature of the competition page.

When you select the “select from existing uploaded images” button you will get the list screen with all of your previous photos. You need to click on the actual thumbnail of the image you want to use on the far left side, not the name of the photo next to it (which is a different function).

The image will open and at the top of the window is a button which says “enter this image in photo and projected image of the year”.

Once selected you will then be taken to the submission screen where you can select the category as usual.

Cheers

Dave

HHCC – 2019 AGM

Notice of Annual General Meeting 2019

The club’s AGM (Annual General Meeting) will take place on Tuesday, 3rd December 2019 at 7.30pm, at Mt Colah Community Hall.  We hope that all Financial Members will be able to attend; any apologies can be sent to the secretary – secretaryhornsbyheightscameraclub@outlook.com

This will be our last official meeting for 2019 and will close off another great year in the club.  The AGM is an ideal time to find out what’s happening next year and enables you to provide input or feedback to the club and its members.

At the AGM there is an election of the Club officers and committee members. All current positions become vacant on the night and any financial member is welcome to submit a nomination for any role they are interested in. All positions are voluntary so if you are interested please submit a nomination form (attached) to the secretary, secretaryhornsbyheightscameraclub@outlook.com at least 7 days before the AGM.  Attached is also a summary of the Roles and Responsibilities.  All and any help is always very much appreciated.

We are looking for a volunteer in 2020 to be in charge of the refreshments which means the Coffee/Tea/Supper set up and looking after the supper crate. Please let the secretary know before the meeting if you can help.  All help is really appreciated by the committee and its members.

We are putting together a great programme for 2020 with several social outings where you can learn technical skills etc., and we will be introducing a new 1 day Photo Challenge with Pennant Hills Photographic Club which will be revealed at the AGM.  If you would like to help co-ordinate a social outing next year please let the Events Co-ordinator know.
