South Gippsland Camera Club

2009 - 2018

The South Gippsland Camera Club was founded in 1976 as the South Gippsland Photo Study Group, transitioned into Foster Photography Club.

In 2016, the club was renamed South Gippsland Camera Club to better reflect the geography of the membership base. The club still meets at Foster on 1st Wednesday of each month.

The club mission in part states 'To promote members' interest, development and ability in photography.' To this end, the club provides guest speakers, monthly competitions, workshops and tutorials for the benefit of members.

The club also enters the VAPS lnterclub photography competition and Gippsland lnterclub Challenge.  An annual exhibition is held at the Stockyard Gallery at Foster and the club organises the photography competition at the Foster Show.

The club has 3 Life Members.  These members and the committee members have all given valued service over several years.

The club members have transitioned entirely to digital still photography and range from beginner to members with years of experience and expertise. These experienced members are very willing to mentor other members wanting to advance their own skill levels. This is reflected in the images entered each month.
