Hot shots grab awards

LISMORE Camera Club scooped the pool at the recent NSW Federation of Camera Clubs Northern Zone conference, held this year in Tamworth.

Club president Steve Smart told The Echo Lismore won two of the three categories - large and small prints - outright, and gained enough merit awards in the third category of electronic prints to score top marks and bring home the Gordon Beaumont trophy for the club's collective body of work.

The annual conference brings together 15 camera clubs, from Gosford to the Queensland border and out west to Moree.

"Eight members of the club went to the conference.

"Pat Tyler got a perfect score with her portrait of a ballet dancer, and David Yeend won the small prints section with a macro shot of an insect.

"And Ian MacDonald's picture of three men at a backgammon table, photographed in Istanbul, was one of the Lismore entries in the electronic category to get a merit award.

Mr Smart said next year's conference would be held in Lismore at the end of March. Guest speakers, all local photographers, will include Craig Parry who takes surf pictures and takes wedding photos with a remote-controlled helicopter; Michael Worthington from Lismore whose specialty is astronomy, and nature photographer John van den Broek.

The Lismore Camera Club meets at the Lismore Workers Club on the first and third Monday of every month at 7.30pm.
