Center ?


Established 50 years ago, the Williamstown Camera Club includes residents of Williamstown, Newport, Altona, Laverton, Footscray and adjacent suburbs. There are 22 meetings per year in which members can develop their photographic skills, socialise with others interested in photography and to engage in friendly competition with the aim of becoming better photographers.

The Club meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 7:45pm at
Walker Close Community Centre,
180 Millers Road,
Altona North.

See the calendar for meeting dates.

Come along and join us!

If you are out there shooting, things will happen for you. If you’re not out there, you’ll only hear about it.

To members who've brought some of these links to our attention via social media.



JPEGmini is a great utility for making your images smaller so they take up less space on your computer or for transmission online, all the while ensuring no quality is lost.

I started using JPEGmini a couple of years ago and have recently upgraded to JPEGmini Pro because my newer camera, the Canon 5DsR, has a 50 megapixel sensor and JPEGmini (non-pro version) has an upper limit of 50 megapixels. 

The folks who make JPEGmini are adamant that this reduction does nothing to affect the quality of the image and that the resulting file can still be used for printing, after all, it has done nothing to affect the pixels that make up the image. What JPEGmini does is removes a lot of "junk" data from the file, reducing the file size, often my more than 50%.

Hopetoun Weekend 2016

After a long drive, stopping to photograph some amazing painted silos and eating beautiful country town pie, we finally arrives at the Mallee Bush Retreat. This place is a hidden gem and after talking to a local (Brett) it gets very busy in the warmer months.

Keys were given out and people moved off to their rooms (bunkhouses), once people were settled in, but before they settled down, it was off to the local pub for some good food and company.
