Hi everyone.

The year is already off to a good start with several meetups. (Thanks to Rachel Stevens for organising these!)  I managed to get to the first one at Pukerua Bay (along with around twenty other photographers). There’s lots of photos posted – have a look.

The next meetup is on Sunday 8 February – “Welcome to Taylorville” – check out all the details here, and come along and join us.

The formal programme for KCPS will kick off on Monday 9 February at 7:30 pm, with a talk by Carol Molineux on ““Recent Journeys into the Arctic Regions of Svalbard and Iceland”.  She has some great images from a unique area that few get the opportunity to visit. Not to be missed.

Summer Salon – Set Themes

Entries for the first salon for the year are due on 9 March.  Please note that the Committee has decided to change the format this year, so that the first three salons will include set themes as well as open images. The updated rules for the 2015 competition can be downloaded here.

For the Summer Salon, you can enter one open digital image, and one on the theme of “Let’s Make Music“. For prints, you can enter one open print and one on the theme of “Intimate Moments“.  Make use of this gorgeous summer weather to get out and about to make images on these themes – which also correspond to two of the topics for the Wellington Interclub print battle later in the year. So we are hoping that this will result in a good selection of images to choose from for that.


Finally – there’s an exhibition of work by Yvonne Todd at the City Gallery in Wellington until 1 March that may be of interest. Check out http://www.citygallery.org.nz/exhibitions/yvonne-todd-creamy-psychology .
