A Long Road for Eurobodalla Photographers

A photographic journey that began with the 2019/20 bushfires was finally completed on May 19th, 2022 with the opening of our volunteer portrait exhibition at Club Malua. The opening event timed to coincide with volunteer week was opened by our new shire Mayor Mat Hatcher.

Funded by a community bush fire recovery grant from the Eurobodalla council, twenty-one portraits of volunteers from the Eurobodalla shire were presented by ten photographers from the Eurobodalla Photographic Club.

Originally intended for presentation in 2021 the pandemic lock downs delayed the project by twelve months. Many thanks to the volunteers who stepped up to have their portraits taken and to the council for their assistance in organising the opening.

Planned to close on 1st June, Club Malua has kindly allowed the exhibition to remain on display in the Marquee until 15th June.

The Eurobodalla Photographic Club continues to grow with 5 new members joining in May. Three of those new members also won awards in the monthly open competition on their first attempt. The competition was expertly Judged by Dan Crowley from the Shoalhaven Camera Club. Many thanks to Dan for taking the time to critique our competition entries.

Following the presentation of the competition image critiques, Beth Westra gave an informative talk on alternative ways to display and use images and to sell products using images. Beth covered a range of possibilities from photo-books to calendars, greeting cards

and wall art..
