APS Photo Walk – Saturday 14th May 2022

Our May outing will be a combined event of the APS Photo Walk and street photography. The theme for this year is: “Repair, Recover and Renew”, so we decided Queen Victoria Market will be a good place to photograph.

From 8:30am to 11:30am, followed by brunch or lunch at Anthony’s Cafe (Common Ground Cafe, 225-229 Victoria St, West Melb)

Leaders: Sim Chong and Jennifer Sui

RSVP to Jennifer Sui by Thursday 12 May 2022.

Portrait Photography with Craig Wetjen

On Tuesday March 15 we have our monthly workshop being held at the Mount Waverley Community Centre in the main hall commencing at 7:30PM. This month our guest will be Craig Wetjen presenting Portrait Photography.

You are right to be thinking that Craig’s name seems familiar to you – he was our judge for the club’s end of year competitions last year. Craig has over three decades of experience in the industry and has won countless awards. He has published his own book in the portrait genre, Men and Their Sheds, and has been involved in teaching at a tertiary level for many years. Craig is an enthusiastic and engaging presenter and we are thrilled that Craig is joining us again for this workshop.

You may note that our set subject for the club’s May competition (due for submission on April 5th) is “Portrait”, making this a very timely workshop and I am sure Craig will be providing plenty of valuable tips.

With regards to COVID-19, Monash Council have advised that masks are no longer mandatory in the Hall, although other restrictions are still in place:

  1. Attendees must be fully vaccinated to enter a community facility & provide proof to your group representative;
  2. attendees must check into the facility via the QR Code or register via the manual registration provided; and
  3. use hand sanitiser on entry & through your occupation of the facility.

We hope to see you there from 7:30PM tomorrow (March 15).

March competition night back in the Main Hall

We will be back in the Main Hall at the Mount Waverley Community Centre for our competition night on Tuesday 1st March 2022.

Monash Council have confirmed the following requirements:

  • Attendees must be fully vaccinated to enter a community facility & provide proof to your group representative
  • Attendees must check into the facility via the QR Code or register via the manual registration provided
  • Use hand sanitiser on entry & through your occupation of the facility

If there is any change to these requirements notified to us before the meeting on Tuesday night, members will be notified ASAP.

We would also like to clarify that a 7:30pm start time means that you should arrive at 7:15pm and the meeting will start at 7:30pm sharp. This is especially important this week with the additional COVID procedures detailed above.
