HERVEY BAY PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB
Hervey Bay Photography Club was established in 2005 by founding members Bruce Butler, Kirsty Butler, Pam Thomas and Barrie Thomas, who are now Life Members of the club.
The club provided a meeting place where photography enthusiasts could pursue the art and practice of photography, share information, learn from each other and experiment with new photography techniques and practices.
Guest speakers on interesting subjects have been a big part of the club over the years, and even now, tutorials, workshops, practical nights, and special events form a large part of our calendar year.
Club members come with a range of photographic experience from beginner to professional and everywhere in between. Members have always supported and helped each other over the years to become better photographers in whatever genre they are interested in.
We have members who have achieved photographic Honours such as LAPS, AAPS, MAPS and PSQA and some of our members are accredited judges. We also cater to the beginner and foster their talents and assist them wherever they need help. We are a well rounded club of various experience levels and all ages, so if you are just starting out and wanting to learn a bit more about photography I'm sure you'll find many helpful, friendly faces who would be keen to lend some support.
If you are thinking about joining we welcome you to attend any 3 meetings at no cost to get a feel of what we do and who we are, before committing to membership. This allows you an opportunity to view a display of Digital Projected Images or Prints and to hear critiques made by the judge.
The Club has three grades for members being: - A Grade Advanced B Grade intermediate and C Grade (for beginners or new members). Experienced new members can submit a small portfolio of their images if they would like to be placed in a higher grade. The committee with then consider which grade would be the most suitable for them.
We are affiliated with the Photographic Society of Queensland (PSQ), which allows for current club members to compete in these highly contested competitions and also with other regional affiliated PSQ club Competitions.
Check out our Calendar of events for workshops, guest speakers, meetings, competitions and end of year Christmas Party and Presentation dates, these can be added to your personal calendar.
