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 – Competition Update

Hi All,

We wanted to provide all of our members with some important updates regarding our remaining competitions for 2020. Firstly is our Fun Competition for July – Still Life. We’ve extended the end date on this through until the end of August to give everyone time to enter. This will be a self scoring competition similar to our recent Fun competition. We’d encourage you all to have a go. Still life is something you can do at home!

Secondly, we have changed our September competition to Open. This was planned to be “Sounds” but given this will be our first meeting back together felt we would like to hold this over until next year. So hold back those sound images until we announce the new competition list in 2021.

Please note also that we will be returning to the normal submission rules for the remaining competitions in 2020:

  • Maximum of 6 images per competition
  • Maximum of 3 images in any one category

Finally, please note that the competition close off time has been moved back to 8pm on the Saturday prior to the competition evening. This is to allow additional time to prepare the photos. You will still receive a notification from the website to let you know when the close date is 3 days away.

Best,

Dave
