A near full house was counted at our August judging night on Tuesday. Its wonderful to see the majority of our members regularly attending each Tuesday! Well done and thank you!
Nicole Curtis was our very popular judge for our themed competition. Nicole has a wonderful way with judging and helping us understand a different perspective for photography whilst always keeping in mind the definitions. Thank you Nicole!
Extra points as usual go to Petro Holowinskyj for double dipping on the joy that is Maitland Camera Club! Petro runs the daytime classes that are held between 10:00 am and noon on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Tuesdays of every month. If you would like to attend or know someone that would please contact Petro.

This next Tuesday night is our ” Knock out Competition”. This is such a fun evening to attend and to enter some images for fun. Remember its a show of hands and the most popular image out of the two displayed goes through to the next round.
Bring 2 images on a USB and give them to Petro or Brian as soon as you arrive so that they can get the party started. I am going to make a prediction here…. I predict that if Brad has any hope of making it past the first round that neither of his images should show any resemblence to Chad Morgan, his son or any look alike at all. Yeah? Agreed?
