How CoVid has affected Our Club

Hi All,

I had mentioned to you all that I had received an invitation from the editor of the E-News magazine of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain to tell UK readers how we have coped with the CoVid virus and affect on the Clubs in Australia.This morning I have received the newsletter and I hope you all will read the article. My thanks to Ian , John and Bruce for details in the article. So now, some members photographs and information about Wollongong has been published in Great Britain. Enjoy your moments of fame.

Photographic Group’s October 2020 Newsletter Published

Our 2020 Photography Group online (Zoom) meetings continue to keep us all in touch and still have our regular meetings, whilst still maintaining our Social Distancing.

The Group’s October Newsletter has been publish and is ready for you to access on the Club’s website’s homepage. It has been interesting time with dynamic speaker (Mark Kelly) and the enthusiasm of our Monthly Competition judge (Meredith Schofield) sharing their experiences in the pursuit of capturing better images.

November bring us closer to the end of the year with only the last Monthly Competition to go. Your “Digital/Print of the Year” will be required soon, so now’s the time to consider your entries and be ready. The Print entrants are reminded that along with the digital registered image an actual printed Print is required. Look out for email advice about this very soon.

There are 3 exciting Exhibitions coming up; Nov 9th ~ 30th “Head On Photo Festival (Sydney/Bondi & 30 other venues), Nov 12th ~ 13th “New Horizons” (Wollongong’s Old Courthouse) and Nov 6th ~ 22nd John Wiseman’s “Respectively Intruding II” (Canberra’s M16 Artspace). Don’t forget our Club Outings. Please check the calendar for these and their dates.

Members are requested to continually check with the Club’s Calendar to review the 2020 Programme for any possible changes due to COVID situation.

Creative Container Gallery 5-18 October 2020

A message from the President to all members.

I am unfortunately unable to visit the Exhibition that you are all contributing to. I have been sent these photographs of the Gallery and it’s a great effort that we all need to support with prints and members talking to the general public who are visiting the Expo.

We are located at the lower end of the Mall
Holding the Fort

Many thanks to Tim Porteous for the photographs and the other members who are supporting this effort by our Marketing Director. Please go and see and post your comments and photographs to our FaceBook Group.
