Camera Club Cuestion

Discussion in 'Australia Photography' started by Vukasin Vujasinovic, Oct 1, 2003.

  1. Well that's how it should be spelt anyway :).

    I'm a 17 year old student in Sydney. For my prelim HSC I did photography
    (mainly b+w but for the assessments the teacher allowed me to submit some
    digitals from my now gone Olympus E-20 - i'm now the happy owner of a 10d).

    I'm interested in joining a camera club in Sydney, prefferably in the inner
    west/city area, don't want to travel out west or south to cronulla or to
    Berowra for that matter :).

    By the way I hav done research which hasn't really answered my queries.

    a) Are there any camera clubs in Sydney aimed at younger photographers -
    under 18's?
    b) If not, does anyone know of any clubs in the inner west area that would
    be suitable?

    Cheers,

    Vukasin 'Vuki' Vujasinovic

    I've been looking for a camera club too.

    I actually posted a similar question a few months back, but it seems to me
    that most of these clubs have very mature members....

    I am in my early 20s and would like to join a younger club too........I live
    around the hurstville area..

    guys,

    when you join a club and the membership is light-years older then you, just
    skip the tech stuff and talk about images instead, there is little
    difference between digital and film - apart from the media it is captured on
    (speaking in general terms). You can always learn something from those old
    folks by listening. One day they will come to you and ask about digital.

    Good luck

    Hi,

    Actually, I am more interested in film rather than digital. I shoot 35mm and
    have just bought a new film scanner to try out the digital process. I still
    think shooting slides is the way to go! (as a hobby)

    My main concern with the clubs is that they may not be interested in
    allowing us to join their clubs...
    Any clubs around hurstville that opposed this statement?

    Haha, you haven't been to a camera club recently :)

    The older set are often well digital equipped.

    Here, here!
    When I needed to go digital I went to an old joker (yes, older than me!) and
    got some God awfull advise on what to buy. But... He was in a club and fully
    digitised. If I meet him again he might discover a digit or two of mine!

    Hi there, I've gone to 2 clubs but they are unfortunately held in Leagues
    Clubs (St. George and Canterbury). I guess you'll have to call the club to
    see if it's in an area you could go to being under 18 and all :-( But I do
    have a link that may help you.

    holy carp, a 17yo who can afford a 10D

    you can join the new club I'm about to create:
    YARPA (Young And Rich Photographers of Australia)
    so that I can check out other people's cool gear ;)

  9. Maybe he is not spending all his money on booze and chevy V8s like many of
    us did.... when your 17 you need to make a choice.

    The good thing about getting older is that you get to have some nice camera
    gear, get a weekly ration of beer from the wife while still driving around
    in a 5.7L Chevy..... works for me! :)
