What we're about

My name is Don Hildred. I’m a Tutor (https://camerasnaphappy.com.au) and Commercial photographer (https://commercialphotographytoowoomba.com.au) with 30 years of professional industry experience.

The goal for our Toowoomba based Photography Meetup community group is to create a friendly like-minded social group, where we can learn and draw inspiration from each other’s past experiences, ask questions and enjoy photography, while learning along the way. Members can attend monthly social meetings, information nights and field trips, where members will be instructed on how to use their cameras while out and about around Toowoomba, South East Queensland...


To join our Photography group, you MUST be living in the Toowoomba region.


All new members are required to read and accept the guidelines as stated below.

(1) A one off New members joining fee (https://www.meetup.com/Toowoomba-Photography-Group/pages/21852667/New_members_joining_fee/) of $50 applies.

(2) Please read the Legal Disclaimer and Waiver of Liability (https://www.meetup.com/Toowoomba-Photography-Group/pages/21669350/Legal_Disclaimer_and_Waiver_of_Liability/) As our group does not have public liability insurance so all Meetup activities will be undertaken at your own risk.

(3) All photos that are uploaded to the Meetup site belong to the original photographer and as such are not allowed to be copied or used without permission.

Monthly meetings are held on the first Thursday evening of the month from 6:30pm-8:00pm at one of the local cafes (location posted to the Meetup webpage each month). Members can ask questions, discuss particular photographic topics, and talk about upcoming field trips and general business. Everyone is encouraged to suggest possible activities/locations of photographic interest for members to enjoy. There is no cost to attend however members are responsible for the purchase of their own food and drinks.

Information lessons are generally held at the East Creek Community Centre Tuesday weeknight from 6:00pm-8:00pm. Specific topics relating to various aspects of digital photography will be discussed to help beginner and intermediate photographers improve their camera skills, however all are welcome. Notes are provided on the night, but can also be purchased at a later date. Limited places are available, generally fourteen as a result of Covid19. Cost per information lesson is $15 per person, payable on the night.

Field trips are generally held on weekends. Members can choose to car pool or individually meet at the time and location posted on the Meetup website. Where possible we meet at a nearby coffee shop to discuss various camera techniques prior to the days outing. Notes are provided. Activities will include local festivals, scenic locations, or attractions further afield depending on members’ preferences. Cost per field trip is $15 per person and is required on the day. This does not include admission costs or costs for food and drinks.
