The exhibition ran from 6th through to the 3rd March 2013 at the Creators Artspace on the Causeway. (Both current and old members were invited to participated in this exhibition). A big thank you for those who helped Paul and Rob hang the photos and setup the Exhibition.

Congratulations to the organizing committee (Paul Temple and Rob Grant) for a very successful exhibition with over 400+ visitors attending, while it was open. Especially when it wasn't able to be manned for 22 hours so the numbers couldn't be taken during that period. Congratulations to Mark and Rob for selling their photos. A big thank you for the members that gave up their time to man the exhibition, in particular Melinda Marengo and John and Denise Organ who all contributed over 20 hours.

Jubilee Workshop by Brian Basham


The Jubilee Workshop with Brian Basham on 'Creative Portraiture and Off Camera Flash' at the Panthers on Saturday the 23rd of February, was a great success. Brian gave us an inspiring presentation and left us with food for thought. It told us we have got a lot more to learn and perfect in this aspect of photography. We all need to go out and put into practise, now that we have the guidelines to use. Perhaps we might have a portraiture competition in the new programme for next season starting in July. View the programme.

Monica, Sharon and Jean-Maree recieve advice from Brian Basham during the Workshop.
