Hello, and welcome to our new look Melbourne Photographic Society Website!

Our previous website, like the person who created it, was looking a bit tired and old (it’s true, it was me), so it was time for a refresh. The sites content will grow, especially when the new season kicks off, which is on September 19th – hasn’t that come around quick!

2019-20 Programme

You can see our complete programme for the 2019-2020 season by clicking here. There’s lots going on, talks, workshops, competitions plus other social events throughout the season. If you’re thinking of joining then you can come and say hi before then by visiting our exhibition stand at the Melbourne Festival on September 14th and 15th – more details here.

Melbourne Photographic Society on Tweeter

You’ll notice our new Twitter account @melbournephoto1 is also linked to the site, so if you use Twitter then please follow us. As well as club news and updates, we’ll be Tweeting about all things photographic. A link to our Facebook account will follow later.

Members’ Area

The password protected pages within the member’s area will hold information from the current season, so are currently empty. A password will be issued to members at the start of the new season.

Supplying content

Everyone in the society can contribute to the website and social accounts, so if you know something that would be of interest to everyone, then please let me know using the contact form on this site.

Example content:

  • local photographic opportunities – locations, or events worth photographing
  • events and festivals relating to art and photography
  • a good deal you’ve found on camera gear
  • camera gear you want to sell
  • educational websites
  • inspirational websites
  • competition websites
  • You can even supply blog posts – ideally these need to be around 300 words and include imagery which is at least 800px along the horizontal edge.

Basically, think of some of the things you chat about in the tea break or down the pub after a club night (keep it clean!). This is often where I pick-up the most valuable info to help improve my photography, everything from the best place to buy mountboard to a local field covered in poppies.
