The theme for the month was “Texture” and Gordon Bentzen was the winner with “I Live Here” which was a photo of a spider on a wall showing the texture on the body of the spider as well as an interesting background texture.

Winner of the Mono Print, as well as the Photo of the Month, was Roger Bawden with his eye-catching sepiatoned “Hanging on Tight”. This was a photo of a yacht that recently came to grief in the Pumicestone Passage during strong winds. Alain Chardon with a great action shot of a cyclist “Cycling Away” won the Colour print section.

Vince Bowser with a brilliantly executed shot taken at Southbank during a recent photoshoot was the winner of the Colour PI. Gail Goodair won the Mono PI with a great shot of a derelict boat taken on our recent trip to Tin Can Bay “Abandoned”. Our judge Wendy Geddes travelled from the Sunshine Coast for the night and critiqued with many useful tips each photograph presented on the night.

Our educational videos had to be abandoned due to computer problems. Several of our members were present during the Camp Quality Xmas celebrations taking photos of the children enjoying themselves and receiving gifts from Santa.

These photos go to the children and their families. The Bribie Island Photography Club meets on the fourth Monday of each month except December at 7 pm in the Boardroom at the back of the Arts Centre on Sunderland Drive. New members are always welcome. The first two meetings are free. If you wish to come along ring Gordon at 3408 2649 or Gail at 0419638865.

Upcoming Art Events & Exhibitions

Coming Events: For our January 2020 meeting we will be running workshops on Painting with Light and Studio Lighting. There will not be a competition on that night. There will be a Photography Club exhibit at the Arts Centre’s “Showcase” display running from 4th -22nd February.

A highly successful sales and leadership career working in a number of different and very competitive industries. Engaging with decision makers at all levels in business and government. Three decades employed by corporations, SME businesses in senior roles and almost twelve years operating as a freelance contractor has equipped me well for all aspects of business. Whether leading and mentoring sales teams, or in a direct sales role I enjoy the challenge to meet and exceed expectations. Making a real and tangible difference in either a team environment or as an individual is an important personal goal I have consistently achieved throughout my career. In all of my business and personal dealings over the years there is one issue that stands out above all others - communication. Excellent communication skills creates trust, helps with mutually beneficial outcomes and above all cements long lasting positive relationships. I strive everyday to communicate effectively with the people I encounter.
