The Bay and Basin Camera Club was formed in 2008 for photographers in the Jervis Bay and St Georges Basin areas of the Shoalhaven on the south coast of NSW. We provide an informative, casual and friendly atmosphere in which members and potential members can improve and expand their photographic knowledge and horizons.

We recommend Flickr for online photo storage and display, and Lightroom for photo processing. A whole lot of photographic links can be found on our Links page.

Meetings and Photo Competitions
We meet at 7:30pm on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month (except for January and the 4th Tuesday in December) at the Vincentia Community Hall (see location below). Meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of each month are Photo Competition meetings where photos submitted by members are critiqued and judged - usually by a guest judge but occasionally by all the members present. Meetings on the 4th Tuesday of the month are "workshops" which may be presentations about different aspects of photography by guest speakers, presentations by club members, or "hands on" practical sessions where members take photographs using newly-learned techniques. We have a break midway through the evening for coffee, tea and biscuits, and the nights usually finish at about 9:30pm.

Meeting Location - Vincentia Community Hall:

Every year the person who scores the most points in our monthly photo competitions becomes our Photographer of the Year. Club members can bring their three best photos to our annual dinner in July where the people present vote for their favourites and decide on the Photo of the Year.
