Financial members agree that any of their images, as appropriate, may be shown on the club website.
We also welcome distance members. A distance member may enter competitions and read their results via this website, and are encouraged to join in on club outings as much as possible.
There are three grades of membership.
Everyone starts out as a novice member. Novices are encouraged to gain more confidence with their cameras through entering images in competitions and learning new techniques at workshops. Once a novice member has attained 60 points through competition results, they automatically graduate to the next level.
Club members at intermediate level are expected to know their way around their camera settings and be growing in confidence to try new techniques.
Images by Intermediates will be assessed with a more critical eye and they will be expected to be showing a good standard of presentation.
Members attain salon grade by invitation, after their work has been assessed to be consistently of a high level of competence. Salon workers are expected to help other club members and to be capable of producing images with a high standard of technical knowledge and presentation.
