Welcome to the Mount Gravatt Photographic Society



At an online vote held by the Management Committee the following motion was passed...All meetings for the Months of March and April are here-by CANCELLED. The meetings of the various Sub-Groups will therefore be suspended also.
What this means is that due to our Duty Of Care [the Committee] to our members and the community at large, all face to face Club Sanctioned meetings and activities will be placed on hold for that time period.
The Lighting Group will be suspended as will the Digital Group.
If a Sub-Group is able to arrange a non-face to face way to continue their interaction, then they are at liberty to do so.
This notice only concerns Club activities and not your personal life of course.
The Committee is taking this action in response to concerns raised to various Committee members. Our membership consists largely of the age groups that have been identified as those at the greater risk in the current climate of concern. We would be negligent to not act.

Tips from our A-Graders

  • Ron Sharples

    Learn your camera; Take your time and do not hurry; Don’t let others feel you need to hasten just because they are finished; Remember, if you miss the photo there is another one around the corner; Look around and move with the light and the subject; Don’t take hundreds of photos, just take your best.
