Our Mission

The aim of Northside Creative Photography Inc is to cultivate and broaden the photographic interests of its members, by exposing them to as wide a mix of styles and mediums as possible, and to provide education, guidance, competition and social interaction. Northside Creative Photography will strive to provide a relaxed, informal meeting environment free from any traditional constraints or limitation of photographic style.

The Club

We are a non-profit organisation run by volunteers who all have a love of photography. The vast majority of our members are “recreational photographers” who take photographs purely for their own enjoyment.

History

Northside Creative Photography (formerly Northern Suburbs Camera Club) has a proud history and has been serving photography enthusiasts on the North Shore since 1952. In 2012 the club celebrated its 60th anniversary.

The Organisation

The club is run by a committee comprising the office bearers of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer and up to five committee members. Committee elections are held at the Annual General Meeting of the club in November.

The club has a Constitution which is based on the ‘Model Rules for Incorporated Associations’ under the Associations Incorporation Act, 1984. Click here for the Agenda and Minutes of the 2016 AGM.

An annual subscription is payable at the beginning of each calendar year.

Meetings

We meet twice a month, on the first and third Wednesday at Lindfield Uniting Church Hall, corner Provincial Road and Pacific Highway, Lindfield, at 7.30 for an 8pm start. A donation of $2 is requested to cover costs of hall hire and refreshments.

The first meeting of the month is generally a competition night. The second meeting may consist of guest speakers, audio-visual presentations or workshops.

A printed program is available at the front desk on meeting nights, and the program is also published on the club Website.

Outings and Social Events

Our monthly Sunday outings and weekends away twice each year provide opportunities for members to get to know each other and visit locations that provide photographic opportunities.
