What’s Happening

This website is still in under construction by Colin Woods but is already available for members to upload their digital images and print images for the Digital and Print competition of the year (2017) (DIOTY and POTY). We will inform members when they can upload images for the January digital competition which starts off the 2018 competition year. Please start getting those Australian nature shots for the Nature category. The annual activities culminate in the end of year lunch which is to be held at the Laurieton United Services Club (LUSC) on Saturday 9th December.  Please see the November Newsletter for more details and booking arrangements.  The preferred payment method is EFT to the HPG account.


Community photography event calendar

With the aim of spreading information across clubs MyPhotoClub is now supplying a community calendar.

The calendar is a place where any person can post an event that other photographers may be interested in.

Access the calendar from the purple button underneath the Welcome your firstname on the top left of the home page.

Anyone can create an event.  Please put anything that if of interest to photographers.  Trips, tutorials and other commercial ventures are OK.  Just be clear where fees apply.  Great photography worthy events such as street parades are all welcome.

I welcome your feedback on this service.
