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 – Change to 2020 schedule

Hi Members,

Happy New Year and welcome to 2020! Hopefully you have had time to browse the club website to review the exciting event calendar we have planned for this year. You’ll find this to the left on the home page.

First up will be our welcome evening on Tuesday 28th January. Please note that we have made a slight change to this evening to allow our members a little more time to complete their portfolios. As such this has been swapped with the workshop planned for March, and this month we will focus on composition and editing with a few demos from Tom, Dave and Sonia.

We look forward to seeing you later this month.

Best,

Dave
