9th February





Our Planning Meeting is a little late this year to avoid Australia Day on the last Wednesday in January.


This is your chance to influence what happens at WCC in 2022.  That includes speakers, workshops, exhibitions, photo shoots, weekend trips, and anything else members would like to discuss. A summary of suggestions from the Members' Survey will be presented. Planning meetings in previous years produced lots of good ideas and information that influenced our meetings in following years. 



Light refreshments will be provided during the meeting.

Images entered in Nature sections meeting the Nature Photography Definition below can have landscapes, geologic formations, weather phenomena, and extant organisms as the primary subject matter. This includes images taken with the subjects in controlled conditions, such as zoos, game farms, botanical gardens, aquariums and any enclosure where the subjects are totally dependent on humans.

 The rules for Nature photography are universally far more prescriptive than any other subject matter. There are two classes of Nature Photography: Nature and Wildlife. Wildlife rules are more restrictive. The rules below are approved by FIAP, PSA, RPS and APS.

 Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archaeology, in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to identify the subject material and certify its honest presentation. The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality while maintaining high technical quality. Human elements shall not be present, except where those human elements are integral parts of the nature story such as nature subjects, like barn owls or storks, adapted to an environment modified by humans, or where those human elements are in situations depicting natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves. Scientific bands, scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals are permissible.

 Photographs of human created hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are not eligible, as is any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement. No techniques that add, relocate, replace, or remove pictorial elements except by cropping are permitted. Techniques that enhance the presentation of the photograph without changing the nature story or the pictorial content, or without altering the content of the original scene, are permitted including HDR, focus stacking and dodging/burning. Techniques that remove elements added by the camera, such as dust spots, digital noise, and film scratches, are allowed. Stitched images are not permitted. All allowed adjustments must appear natural. Colour images can be converted to grey-scale monochrome. Infrared images, either direct-captures or derivations, are not allowed.

 Peter Olsen Trophy awarded to best subject image.
