I joined the club in 2009 having always been interested in photography, I started with a Minolta compact digital then graduated to a Pentax SLR. I did the WAPJA judging course to educate myself and others and because I genuinely like looking at other peoples photos. I like all styles of  photography but mainly do table top, close up and macro. I also like experimenting with textures and Photoshop.

I took up Photography in April 2013 and after attending a Nikon Workshop run by Kingsley decided to attend a club meeting. When I saw the photos taken by club members I knew I wanted to be able to take photos like that. Since then I have attended loads of training, workshops and spent many hours behind the computer learning stuff from the internet. What I love about photography is you never stop learning, there is always something new to try and I have seen more of WA in the past 4 years than I did ever before. I have met lots of people and become friends with some in and out of the Rockingham Photography Club and wish to continue my photography journey for many years to come.

Committee are the heart of the club and volunteer of their time.

Would you like to enhance the club in some way? Your best ‘voice’ is as part of the committee. This is any members opportunity to be part of clubs decisions, planning, and support.

I joined the club in 2016 to get more involved with other fellow photographers with the same passion for capturing moments in time.  I have been involved in photography for over 10 years as it was heavily used in my previous employment as a project engineer surveying and analysing offshore oil rigs and producing 3D Asbuilt models from photographs. It has only been in the past 3 years that I started taking photograph’s for my own enjoyment and my interest and passion continues to grow stronger each day. I enjoy most aspects of photography but my main focus recently has been exploring WA and capturing Landscapes/Seascapes and Astro photographs. I use 2 Canon full frame systems, 6D and 5D MK IV along with an ever growing collection of lenses.

“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.”

“I have been a keen amateur photographer most of my life starting off with film range finder cameras and then progressing to SLRs.

I did most of my own processing (Black & White)

I got my first DSLR (Nikon) about 6 years ago and about the same time joined the Rockingham Club.

I enjoy most forms of photography particularly portraiture and more recently nature.

I currently have a Nikon D600 and a FujiFilm EX1 which I love.

Joining the Rockingham Club has really improved my photography with feed back by other members and the judges in our monthly competitions.”

“Photography is part of my life time leisure and traveling as well - I love to have my own Gallery in the future to display my Photography Art Works.

Canon 5DMKll is my camera and hoping to save up for 5Ds.

Had joined the club for more than 2 years and the friendship between each other members.

I think I really enjoy each of our meetings and being able to look after some of the new members onboard which am very happy to do so.”

I am relatively new to the photography scene and have well and truly been bitten by the bug.  After picking up an Olympus OMD-EM1 mirrorless camera I stumbled across the Rockingham club and from the first meeting was impressed by the professionalism and friendliness of everyone involved. I am immersing myself completely into everything to do with photography, and hope to do my part in keeping the awesome momentum at the Rockingham photography club going.

My current focus is on long-exposure landscapes and increasing my knowledge with Photoshop. When not destroying my tripod by sticking it all manner of water, rock and mud I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring the great outdoors and also play on the wing for the mighty Mandurah Makos football club. Happy shooting!

I started taking photography seriously in 2006. In about 2013, after a few camera upgrades, and some advice from friends, I joined Rockingham Photography club. I found that being part of the club has opened my eyes to what is possible with photography. I’m a fan of abstract shapes, forms and arrangements, as well as portraiture. I currently shoot with a Canon 5D MkIII.
