Field Trip: April 10th

Our next field trip will be held on Sunday 10th April.  We will be heading to Oamaru and Clarks Mill.  There is a $10 entry charge for Clarks Mill.
We will meet at 8.30am at the Railway Station carpark and sort out carpooling from there.  We will head to Oamaru first for a wander around the old part of town and then after lunch visit Clarks Mill.
Please indicate to the Field Trip Coordinator (via email: fieldtrips.DPSNZ@gmail.com) if you intend to come along.

Happy New Year

The new year is well underway now and hopefully you have all been out enjoying the great weather and taking lots of photos.  We had the first photowalk of the year on Sunday, which was actually a photobike rather than a walk.  We headed to Hyde and cycled a bit of the rail trail, before heading back to the cafe at Hyde for lunch. Great way to start the DPS fieldtrip/photowalk year.

2015 is a big year for the Dunedin Photographic Society – we are celebrating 125 years.  We are led to believe that the society is the oldest continuing Photographic Society in the Southern Hemisphere – certainly in Australasia  We will be celebrating this occasion in March with an exhibition of members’ work and some historical works from the Hocken Collection.  There will also be some associated events – more details to come.

The programme for the year is available online.  The first meeting of the year is Monday 9th Feb at 7.30pm.  Our speaker for the night is Terry Maguire who will be giving us a history of the Society.  Of course, the print of the month competition will also start on the 9th.  The theme is “Open” and prints will be appraised by John Hart. Remember to bring your prints along by 7.20pm.
