HORSHAM camera club hopes to reform

ENTHUSIASTS will meet on Monday in the hopes of reforming the Horsham Camera Club, providing photographers a chance to extend their skills. 

Organiser Anna Ferguson said she was surprised to learn Horsham’s photography club had never reformed following its closure in 2003. 

“I was interested to see what a photography club involved and after seeing the Stawell camera club, I was amazed at what it could offer to photographers,” she said. 

“It was strange that Stawell and towns surrounding us have photography clubs (and Horsham doesn’t).”

Ms Ferguson said the first meeting aimed to ascertain interest and form an executive and commence incorporation and affiliation with the Victorian Association of Photographic Societies. 

“Reforming the club is a great opportunity for photographers to skillshare,” she said. 

The club was formerly known as the Horsham Photographic Group, but folded in 2003 due to a lack of interest. Ms Ferguson said she hoped to offer courses from expert speakers, as well as run in-house and inter-club competitions.

“Whether you’re a beginner or professional, there are opportunities to learn and extend your skills,” she said. 

“By offering a variety of courses, our members can broaden their skills in portraits to landscapes and even audio-visuals.” 

Horsham Camera Club’s first meeting is at the Horsham RSLs members lounge. 

Ms Ferguson said people wanting more information on the camera club could phone her on 0417 161 983.
