This is your chance to influence what happens at WCC in 2021.  That includes speakers, workshops, exhibitions, photo shoots, weekend trips, and anything else members would like to discuss. 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.

OFF THE BEATEN TRACK - Taking Photography on New Trails

Seng Mah 




Have you ever wondered about the challenges faced by photographers who travel off the beaten track to slightly less touristic places where natural elements (temperature, humidity) and environment (steppes, desert, rainforests) can make or break photographs and photographers? Then join travel photographer, Seng Mah, for a session on photography in some of the more interesting destinations in the world, including Mongolia and Madagascar

Judge - Nick Melidonis

Images 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 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. 

Please check 'subject definitions' for the full definition.

Black and White - Abstract

Judge - Richard Goodwin


An abstract image derived from an industrial/architectural/machine source.

Most commonly, abstraction takes place when the photographer focuses in on a fragment of a natural scene, isolating it from its context. By zeroing in on the colour, texture, line, shape, geometry, symmetry, or reflection of a scene, the photographer warps our perception of the real world and familiar objects.
