From our Patron: Emeritus Professor Des Crawley

I have been associated with this Club for close to fifty years. It is a Club with much to offer members be they beginners or advanced photographers. Its annual programs reflect the best practice and interpretations of contemporary photographic activity. The Club is a broadly based organisation with a focus on fellowship, learning from each other and from specialist mentors. Each year the experiences offered cover a wide range of genre – landscape, portrait, travel, experimental and expressive approaches.

Its blend of education and application via lectures, workshops, demonstration sessions as well as field trips offers challenges for the beginner and the experienced alike. Its annual Project of Passion program gives participants the chance to focus on a theme and develop a body of work that moves well beyond the competition approaches of many clubs. Again, it continues to offer an exhibition program where participants’ work is displayed in a gallery environment with all the tangible and intangible benefits such an experience offers.

The recurring emphasis within the Club is on the art, craft and science of photography offered within a supportive environment. Over the years the Club has been associated with change, with innovation, with initiatives that have influenced the broad agenda of community arts via its leadership and capacity to offer a program for its members that blends the best of traditions with innovation and experimentation. What pleases me, in particular, is the value given to learning, to personal growth, to challenges that push and extend one’s interests and capacity in a culture of support and encouragement.
