About PICC

The Phillip Island Camera Club was formed by a small group of enthusiasts in mid-1994. In 2008, the Club became a special interest group of the Artists’ Society of Phillip Island (ASPI). There are currently 45 members, who have a broad range of photographic interests, including architecture, land and seascape, portraiture, macro-photography and nature, especially birdlife, rocks, bark and trees. They remain committed to sharing ideas and expertise, practising photo evaluation, developing skills, promoting photography as a recreational activity and participating in exhibitions.

Monthly Competitions

The Club holds a monthly photographic competition. Entering any such event provides numerous opportunities for learning. You will experience: a wealth of ideas and inspiration for subjects; encouragement to try new techniques; and acknowledgement for your effort. The scoring mechanism used can provide a guide of your progress over time. Not only will you hear comments, both positive and negative (but with constructive advice), about your own images, but also about other members’ work – so at the same time you get to see where your technique needs improvement and what you should be aiming for.
