Our trip to Phillip Island is coming up this weekend. Think good thoughts for the weather. We're looking forward to a great weekend.

Please note the following programme is subject to change.


For those arriving on Friday night, contact James Troi. Please note Karen Malbon, Brian Young and David Male will not be arriving until Saturday.

Weather permitting we might try and make use of the knowledge Alex Cherney shared regarding astrophotography and capture some stars on Friday night.


2pm - Meet our local guide Robert McKay at 2pm at the Rhyll Jetty, Beach Rd, Rhyll. There is ample parking in the area and we can arrange car pooling.

Specific photography locations will be determined closer to the day to take into account weather conditions but are likely to include Rhyll, Cowes and Churchill Island.

7.30pm – Dinner at ISOLA DI CAPRI , 2 Thompson Avenue, Cowes. Corner of the Esplanade and the main street.


TBA - Meeting time and place will be determined on Saturday and is likely to include access to bird hides.

Meeting: Light Painting

It was a much-loved event in 2019 so we're giving it another go. Join us at Altona beach at the end of Millers Road and to the right.

This is a workshop exploring the use of light for painting on our cameras. We'll be looking at using manual mode during this workshop.

Bring a tripod, a wide lens: between 20 and 120mm, a headlamp or torch, a remote trigger, or know your timer settings. It will be quite dark and it will be cold, so ensure you rug up for the evening. 

Also dark clothing is best as you might help out with the lighting and the darker your clothing the less you are likely to appear in the shot. There will be a few stations on the night so we can spread out.
