Next Meetup

Annual Vintage & Crafts Rally
Our previous trips to Heritage Park were very successful. In the last weekend in July they hold their special annual event . Heritage Park is full of Vintage treasures or old junk depending on what you see, there are lots of old machinery, bikes, buses, quaint cottages waiting to be restored, an old sub-marine. The are sheds full of vintage telephones , sewing machines, kitchen appliances, lots and lots to be really creative with. Given that there may be a lot of people there, it is important to be careful not to get in people's way. It is probably best to leave your tripod in the car. As usual please make a $1 donation it helps cover the cost of the website. I believe there is a small entry fee for adults (there was a $10 entry fee in the past). Location: Heritage Park - 193 Rifle Range Road Pimpama.Take EXIT 49 from M1 Motorway.

    What we're about

    Photography based on planned projects.

    The Gold Coast SLR Photography Meetup Group (GDP) is for anyone who loves taking photos using their digital SLR. Our meet-ups will be opportunities for people to learn, hang out together, make friends, and have some fun. We plan on choosing a variety of projects to complete - from macro to wide, wild life, portraits or what ever members want using 'Ideas'. Venues may change later but primarily it will be based at the Gold Coast Region.

    We are honest and open; we tolerate different opinions; we respect other’s cultural viewpoints; we try to pass on knowledge and expertise; we try to bring something constructive to each topic; we express disagreement in a reasoned and reasonable manner.
