Previous club member’s photo in Christchurch Star
Previous member Pat Tetlow’s photograph, Reflections, has been spotted in the Readers’ Photos page of the Christchurch Star. Pat has obviously been active in the photography field since moving into Christchurch. Well done Pat.
Our calendar is reaching out to people across the world with Eric of Newport, Wales, UK complimenting us on the photographs of the area.
“Have just enjoyed viewing your club site, some really outstanding photography of your local area. You may be wondering how I found your site. I have acquired this year’s Calendar produced by your club. So will be thinking of you each month.”

Governors Bay Walk
Ten Club members started from the Allandale Reserve and with cameras at the ready and proceeded along the Foreshore Road Walkway on Sunday 21st May. Originally built in 1857 this bridleway later became the the main road but now provides a 3.5km coastal walkway with great views down the harbour and interesting features along the way.
The group had lunch at the Governors Bay Hotel and returned to Allandale along the same route in the afternoon snapping under brighter conditions with different lighting effects.
Tekapo Field Trip
The Club had a field trip to Lake Tekapo on the weekend of 25-25 March 2017 at which 22 members and partners attended. Three houses were booked and all met for a BYO dinner at one of them on the Friday night. A wide range of photographs were taken, needless to say, The Church of the Good Shepherd, the night sky, the lake and the surrounding countryside.
The Club usually has a number of field trips during the year and these prove invaluable for getting to know each other, trying out new photography techniques and learning from each other in a different environment.
The 19th AGM of the Camera Club was held on the 18 April 2017. Dorothy Shrimpton, the outgoing Chair, gave a glowing report on the Club’s activities over the past year and thanked all those concerned in making the year a success. The new officers elected for the next 12 months are:
Chair: Joan Gladwyn
Secretary: Prue Kennard
Committee: Dorothy Shrimpton, Evelyn Keeley, Tim Cheesbrough, Steve Howard, Noel Blackburn, Daniel Tartaglia
The CluPhoto Galleryb has 39 members and is in a good financial position with subscriptions being maintained at $20pp, $30 couple and $10 student.
