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.

HHCC – Interclub Competition Tonight!

Dear Member’s

We encourage all members to join us on ZOOM tonight in support of your club for our annual Interclub competition with Pittwater Photography Club. Link details are below.

Unfortunately last year this event was canceled so we are even more excited to be meeting with Pittwater this year. We are excited to have Ian and Diane English as our judges for this special event, although we believe Ian will be doing the majority of the judging. 

Ian and Dianne are both accomplished photographers have entered many National and International Photographic Salons with much success. Ian recently acquired the EFIAP/g international honours as well as GMAPS (Grand Master Australian Photographic Society) and Dianne has attained the EFIAP and PPSA honours.  They have each won multiple medals and awards both nationally and internationally. 

We haven’t had the privilege of Ian or Diane judge for us before so we are very excited to have them join us.

Interclub Competition Link For Tuesday 31st August

G’day all,

Here is the link for Tuesday night’s Interclub Competition. It starts at 7:30 pm sharp!

Join Zoom Meeting

The competition with be judged by Ian and Dianne English.

Ian and Dianne now live on the shores of Lake Macquarie having recently retired.  They moved north from Castle Hill in Sydney and have not regretted one day since.  They were active members of the Castle Hill RSL Photography Club in Sydney, which has over 300 members.  They now belong to The Wangi Workers Camera club with around 40 members.

Ian and Dianne are both accomplished photographers have entered many National and International Photographic Salons with much success. Ian recently acquired the EFIAP/g international honours as well as GMAPS (Grand Master Australian Photographic Society) and Dianne has attained the EFIAP and PPSA honours.  They have each won multiple medals and awards both nationally and internationally. 

Their styles differ and while each has their preferred genres, they also enjoy all styles of photography and appreciate the work of others through their association and membership of the two camera clubs.

Each has had experience judging National and International competitions.

Ian was recently President of the Maitland International Photographic Salon for three years.

Some of their accomplishments:

Dianne gained first place in the International Gardens in Focus competition run by the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens. 

They have each won two sections at the Royal Easter Show Arts and Photography.

Ian won the FCC Topshot competition in 2011 and was a finalist in the prestigious Moran Photographic Prize in 2012.

I hope to see you at 7:30 on Tuesday night.

HHCC – September Competition

To support our September competition – People including Portrait, we’ve needed to organise the picture groups slightly differently. You’ll see 2 sections in each of our normal groups – Large Print, Mono, Small Print and Digital.
There is one for Portrait and one for People. This is done so the judge can see which of the subjects your picture aligns to. You can submit pictures as follow:

* One picture in each section  (i.e. Large Colour Prints – 1 in People and 1 in Portraits)
* Two pictures in one section (i.e. Large Colours Prints both in People or both in Portraits therefore not in both)

This means there is still a total of 2 pictures maximum in each section. The system won’t restrict this automatically so please ensure you only have a maximum of two in each section.  The total pictures you may submit in the competition is still 4. 

If you have already entered any images please check that they meet the correct criteria because you may wish to change them.  You can contact Elaine on secretaryhornsbyheightscameraclub@outlook.com  if you have any queries.

Which section you enter is your choice as the author.

Our judge this month is David Oliver. David has been a professional portrait and wedding photographer for many years. He is a Grand Master of Photography in the Australian Institute of Professional Photography, and an ambassador for Nikon and Epson. We look forward to welcoming him on the night!
