Mackay’s Fun and Enthusiastic Camera Club – Creative Shots Photo Club

Do you enjoy photography?  Are you a hobbyist who is just learning the ropes with better pictures?  Maybe you’re a young professional just getting traction in your career.

No matter the case, Creative Shots Photo Club Mackay wants you!  We’re a passionate collective of photographers of all ages and levels.  From literal beginners to seasoned veterans of the industry, we come together to share in our love for photography – right here in Mackay.

What We Offer

The Creative Shots Photo Club brings you all sorts of wonderful benefits when you join.  For one, our monthly meeting provides a regularly scheduled meet-up where we discuss all the new and exciting activities, events, and other opportunities available to members.  You will find that no matter what level of photographer you are, you will always learn something new by being around others that share your similar interest of photography.

The Meetings

  • When:               Meetings are held on the Third Wednesday of Each Month (Except for December).
  • Time:                 6:45pm for a 7:00pm Start.
  • Venue:              The Community Meeting Room, Gordon White Library, 54 Phillip St, North Mackay.

Meetings alternate monthly between a photo judging night and an information night.  The photo judging night is a chance for members to submit their photos for critique to help improve their photography and perhaps gain a different perspective of their image(s).  The information nights cover a wide variety of topics that are of interest to Mackay photographers.  This may include techniques, locations, activities, and any issues members want to discuss.
