Pho­tog­ra­phers show off work

Waihi Leader - - News - By ME­LANIE CAMOIN news@wai­hileader.co.nz

Mem­bers of the Katikati Pho­tog­ra­phers group are show­ing their pho­to­graphs at the Harry Mad­dox Gallery.

The work re­flects the di­ver­sity of the group, from ama­teurs to semi-pro­fes­sion­als and in­cludes land­scapes, por­traits and macro pho­tog­ra­phy.

The group, which formed nearly a year ago, meets once a month and has 47 mem­bers in Waihi Beach, Katikati to Tau­ranga. Nine of them are show­ing their work, with most of it for sale.

Group founder and Katikati photographer Jo Bryant says she wanted to show­case lo­cal tal­ents.

“There is such a di­ver­sity in this group, dif­fer­ent types of pho­tog­ra­phy.

“Our youngest mem­ber is about 15 and the old­est is 90-years-old,” she says.

Jo says the group started af­ter a photographer said to her he was tired of trav­el­ling to Tau­ranga to the Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety there, to meet like­minded peo­ple.

“I feel it is good for the com­mu­nity to know there is a lo­cal group around to join.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion came up af­ter gallery own­ers Suzanne Ball and Drupe Gilmer had a can­cel­la­tion and of­fered the group to show their work in­stead.

The dis­play will end at noon on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 13.
