Photography Group

9.30am, Tuesday October 31st

Balwyn Baptist Church, 517 Whitehorse Road Balwyn (Melway 46 F8)

Because the Victoria Racing Club is unlikely to agree to move the Melbourne Cup to another day so as not to clash with our Photography Group meeting, we have had to move our next meeting from the first Tuesday in November to the fifth Tuesday in October.

So today, we will meet at the Balwyn Baptist Churchpool cars and drive to the National Rhododendron Gardens, The Georgian Road, Olinda (Melway 66 K4) for, hopefully, a very colourful photo shoot.

After the shoot, we will lunch either at Café Vireya in the Gardens or the Royal in Upper Ferntree Gully.


Members of the Photography Group meet on the first Tuesday of each month (except Melbourne Cup Day) at the Balwyn Baptist Church to develop their creative skills related to the taking, enhancement, storage and presentation of photographs.

At each meeting, members are invited to bring along photographs and other photographic memorabilia for a “show and tell” session, which is usually followed by a presentation on a photography-related topic, e.g, creating photo books, converting 35mm slides to digital images, portrait photography, etc.

The Group also visits various places around Melbourne for photo “shoots” and recent “shoots” have been at the Royal Botanical Gardens,  Rippon Lea and the National Gallery of Victoria.
