Subcommittees

On occasion the Committee will create a subcommittee tasked with carrying out certain duties or planning for the club. The use of Subcommittees allow us "share the load" and create specialised groups of people.

The subcommittees are all created by the committee. Inclusion of members to the subcommittee are at the discretion of the subcommittee convener with consultation of the Committee. All subcommittees report their activities to the Committee.

Competitions Subcommittee

One continuing subcommittee is our Competitions Subcommittee. The Competitions Subcommittee members are tasked with:

  • evaluating new members for placement in either Grade A or B for the purpose of club competitions, 
  • end of year evaluation for the purpose of regrading members based on images presented to competitions throughout the year, and 
  • the selection of club entries into Interclub competitions.

Currently our Competitions Subcommittee members are: Tania Chalmers, Brett Ferguson, Cathy Buchanan, and James Troi.

Weekend Away Subcommittees

When identified, members with local knowledge of our intended destinations are often recruited for our Weekend Away Subcommittees. Along with other members and members of the club's main committee, these subcommittees put in all the hard work to ensure our weekends away are well planned and executed. Often this includes reconnaissance of the destination, communicating with local guides/photographers, camera clubs, businesses, and points of interest; all to find the best photographic opportunities and experiences for the members and their guests who attend these weekends.

The efforts of the Weekend Away Subcommittees can not be understated. A lot goes into creating the itinerary, the committee is grateful to these volunteers.

Regular members of our Weekend Away Subcommittees include: Nola Kelsey, Gayle Tout, Margaret Turner, Fran├žoise Muller-Robbie, Catherine Stevenson. With many other unsung members.

Judging: 6th Competition: Open & Set Subject: People Portraits

Portraits are one of those subjects that everyone wants to do more of, but finding subjects to sit for us can be difficult, but we challenged our members to do exactly that for our 6th competition's set subject. How did they go?

Presentation: Selby Markham: Cameraless Photography

Mr Markham will be taking us on an exploration of using photographic media to create photographs without a camera. The techniques used may surprise you... if you have done darkroom work before, some of it may be familiar. Come along and see what can be done with light, without the typical instrument we use to capture it.
