The Castle Hill RSL Photography Club, formed in 1994 as the Hills Photographic Society and later renamed the Hills Camera Club, is an expanding club of around 300 members who have a diverse range of experience and talent. We endeavour to be an informative and social club with friendly competitions, social outings and events. A strong point of our club is the emphasis on training that we have.
We meet three times a month on the first, second and fourth Tuesdays at 7:30pm, unless otherwise stated, at the
Castle Hill RSL Club
Usually, our monthly program normally consists of:
- a lecture night, where specific subjects are covered e.g. nature
photography or studio work
- a workshop night where members can have questions and issues
resolved. This is generally a very informal night where other members
or visiting experts discuss issues of relevance, and
- a competition night, where members submit entries
to be judged by an independent external judge. Awards issued count
towards a yearly point score system and a trophy. The judge
generally discusses the merits of each photo and provides comments
on how improvements can be made. This is an excellent way to
improve your photography.
We have outings several times a year with the objective of improving your photography as well as meeting and socialising with other members.
At the beginning of each year we publish our program for the next twelve months. The program varies every year and we try to have competition subjects that stretch members’ creative limits.
The only equipment you require is a film or digital camera, and an interest in improving your photographic skills.
The social side of the club is very important to us. We like to have fun and a chat during supper and after the meeting.
