We like to think we are a very friendly bunch and make it a point to look out for our new attendees so we would love to have you join us. If you are interested in learning more about our Club we recommend coming along to some of meetings on a casual basis to see if our Club will fulfill your needs. Then if you enjoy it (and we hope you will) you can take out a full membership.
Although we don’t offer structured beginners tuition our Club members range in age and experience levels and are all very welcoming and enthusiastic about photography. So if you have any specific questions there is generally someone in our club who can provide you with an answer. There is also usually someone who can provide a recommendation of some education materials whether it is a training course/workshop/seminar they have heard about or tried themselves or reading materials they found helpful.
We meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at the Philatelic Hall on the corner of West Avenue and Coolcrest Street in Wynnum from 7:30pm. The second Tuesday of the month is a “prac” night where we have a presentation on a particular topic or do a practical exercise (such as an outing or task).
The fourth Tuesday is a competition night where an expert outside judge assesses all the competition entries and provides feedback to each submitter. This will assist you to learn not only what judges look for but gain useful insight into other important skills, such as post-processing and photo composition.
Apart from the annual membership fee we also ask for a door donation at each meeting of $3.00. This assists the club to offset some of our running expenses.
Giulio started his career as a news photographer in 1989; in 1992, he headed for Scotland on a one way ticket to Heathrow and enough money to buy a basic kit of camera gear.
At the start of 1998, after having had work published in every major Scottish and London-based newspaper, he packed up his life in Scotland and hitchhiked all the way around Australia, photographing everyone who gave him a lift.
After completing his hitchhiking journey in December 1998, he returned to Brisbane and began working as a freelance photographer. He also self-published '...so I did', the book of his hitchhiking journey.
He joined ABC News Online in 2007 as their inaugural photo editor; however, he left the media in 2016 and now spends his time working on, among other things, his many personal projects.
