You can see all of the great work and fun had by members by visiting our website's Galleries pages.

Our aim is for members to share their enthusiasm and love of photography via competitions, lectures, presentations and social activities. We are a friendly, contemporary and progressive club. 

Regular competitions are aimed at improving photographic skills. Lectures are given by visiting photographers and professionals in the industry. Examples this year have been a Macro evening and a Light Paintings evening - wonderful! Encouragement is provided in the appreciation of the art of photography

Membership is open to everyone who enjoys photography. We conduct photographic outings on a regular basis.

Pittwater Camera Club welcomes visitors to any of our meeting nights. The Pittwater Camera Club meets on alternate Mondays at: PITTWATER RSL

Evaluation Presentation - by - Mike Smyth

First meeting back for us will be a presentation on 'evaluations explained' and welcome back evening.  We are hoping to give members a more hands on experience in 2017.  We are proposing that members bring in 2 images they are having problems with, be it in the processing or some other area - this is what we are calling evaluations (this will be later in the year and is not what we are doing on our first night back).  Small groups of about 6 members will then sit around and try to come up with solutions to improve the images. We have found that members sometimes do not really know how to fix images that are somehow wrong and we hope that this 'almost' one on one process may help members take their images to greater heights.

We are planning many different experiences for our members next year and we have opened up the number of competitions we will be having during the year which will offer members greater opportunities to show off their work.

Our meetings commence at 7.15 pm for a 7.30 pm start
