Club Committee...


Vice President - Club Founder - 2006

Kingsley Klau - AIPP - 0417 928 679


Kingsley saw a need for those interested in photography to meet regularly and to encourage their enjoyment of photography.  As such the club was founded in June, 2006.  In December, 2015, he was awarded Life Membership - the first in the club.

Kingsley was the owner and creator of PhotoCoffee and is a full AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) member.  He is also an awarded teacher of various Photography Courses, conducted through PhotoCoffeeSHOOT Photography in Perth, and at various educational faculties.  Uses a variety of Nikon Cameras - D4, Z7, D500, Df along with a broad range of lenses, flashes and lighting equipment.

Kingsley was a Previous President of the West Australian Photographic Federation - WAPF, his second term in the role.

My focus on photography was borne from my interest in models and model railway.  To improve my photography of these miniature environments, I undertook training with Kingsley through PhotoCoffee in 2016.  I soon joined the club and was prompted to change from my Olympus OMD EM1 to a Nikon D810.  Changes in circumstances during 2016/17 meant downsizing my photography gear to a CSC Nikon P900 before realising the dramatic restrictions CSC's have and returning to DSLR with the Nikon D7200.  Having retired, I changed again to a Nikon D750 (best move ever) in January 2018 and have ramped up my photographic activity accordingly.  While I have no specific genre focus, I have a number of fast lenses for landscape, portrait, and wildlife photography.  Like a number of our club members, I have a particular interest in photographing rescue animals as a volunteer with ShutterPaws.

President - April 2019 -

Bruce Fraser


I have been passionate about photography for over 40 years, whilst serving in the emergency services (Fire and Ambulance).  It has only been in the past 3 years that I started taking photography seriously and I have recently completed a Cert IV in Digital Photography and received some overseas tuition on Landscape and Cityscape photography whilst in New York City, the UK and Scotland.

Whilst being a member of the Rockingham Photographic Club my passion for the different genres of photography continues to grow stronger by the day. I enjoy all aspects of photography but my main focus has been capturing the various Landscapes and Seascapes along our wonderful coastline. My camera of choice is a Canon full frame 5D MK IV along with the new Sony full frame A7R MK III.

“I’ve been with the Club since February, 2009 and loved every minute.  I enjoy landscapes and anything to do with water.  I also like doing candid shots of people when they don’t know I’m taking the shot.

I currently use a Nikon D7000”

I really enjoy traveling throughout Western Australia capturing the stunning countryside but joined the camera club to diversify into portraiture and macro to give me a better cross section of my travels. I have been the President of the Melville Camera Club, and the West Australian Photographic Federation mainly to promote the importance of clubs providing photo outings to ensure members know each other and can share photographic knowledge.  So Im part of the committee to continue to promote outings.  My camera is a Nikon D600, and it doesn’t get enough use!!  I also believe that good food is an important element to our successful photo outings.”

After shooting with multiple compact film cameras over the years, I acquired my first digital compact in 1999 – quickly becoming frustrated with not being able to make it do what I wanted it to do. After working my way through several compacts, I was blessed to receive my first DSLR in 2012 (Sony A77 SLT) and am now slowly learning just what it can – and cannot – do.  I primarily shoot landscape/seascapes, nature/animals, and sunsets, preferring to use natural and available light. I believe good food shared with friends is an essential part of life.

My interest in photography first came about in high school, we did a semester in YR9, walking around the school taking photos and then going into the darkroom to develop them. Over the years I owned an array of film cameras. In 2012 I received a Nikon D3100 for Christmas, which lit that spark again. Moved to Melbourne in 2015, thought I would look for a photography club to join, which I did, meeting new like minded people, learning new features of the camera, growing my passion for photography even more, then making the decision to head back west, I typed in photography clubs around Rockingham into google search and Rockingham Photography Club popped up and here I am. Joining the club in 2017 has been a great adventure, learning and building my passion even more. I now shoot with a Nikon D5600 and learning what it can do and what I can do has been an adventure, with even more exciting adventures to come.

Just an average bloke who enjoys taking photographs when the opportunity presents it. Being retired one would think that time is plentiful.  I can tell that it isn’t.  There is always something to do and my interests include, Motorsport, working at a friends Motorsport Workshop, riding motorcycles (a sidecar especially) and, strangely enough, IOS development (you know… iPhone and iPad Apps….. OK I’m a nerd).

I look after the photo submissions each month and present the images at the club meetings.

I have a bunch of Nikon gear including a 400mm F2.8 bazooka lens that I’m told I should use more often.  What did I say about time available?

My interest in photography was sparked as a teenager when I learnt to develop b&w photos with my father, from this I took up photography at high school becoming the schools photographer for the monthly school magazine. I continued my interest in photography when I joined the Royal Australian Navy and had the opportunity to become one of the ships photographers during my time on HMAS Success. After leaving the Navy life took over and I put down my camera for many years. Photography only became a focus in my life again about 2 years ago which is when I bought my first digital camera. After some encouragement I decided to join Rockingham Photography Club a little over 12 months ago. Since joining I have grown to love taking photos of birds, wildlife and macro whilst also enjoying the challenges of each months themes. I decided to join the committee so I can learn from the other committee members and to try and give back a little to the club.
