Club History

As far as we are able to determine the club started in 1986, meeting in the Manning Gardens School. Meetings were held there for a few months and then shifted to the Parsonage where meetings were held for quite some time before moving to the Presbyterian Church Hall. The Club’s next move was to RSL on the river bank were we remained until we made the move to Wingham Rd with Club Taree, This was done because Club Taree have been good to the Photographic Club providing us much support and accommodating us when we needed to hold any special events.

Eric Bierre was the first President. Eric was great photographer, and was the person who made the original Cinesound introduction with the laughing Kookaburra.

The Club has a distinguished record of winning many trophies at the Northern Zone Convention of Photographic Clubs as well as members winning many awards at International competitions.
