The Hibiscus Coast Photographic Club’s last exhibition at Estuary Arts Centre, held two years ago, drew a lot of attention and some sales, so they are doing it again.
The current exhibition, called A Moment in Time, is on until August 9.
Organiser Bas Cuthbert says the show was planned to take place alongside the Auckland Photographic Festival, but was delayed by the Covid-19 lockdown.
A total of 50 photographs by 27 photographers are on show, with a wide range of subjects and styles.
An exception is portraiture as there are virtually no images of people in the chosen works.
Bas says this could be because landscapes, still life and more abstract work sells better.
Bas specialises in photographs of birds, and says Shakespear Open Sanctuary is a great hunting ground for these subjects.
Alongside the show will be two free public workshops – one on landscape photography by Brian Eastwood and another by Paul Conroy called ‘Emotions are the Heart of Good Photography’. The exhibition includes Extrovert and Introvert, by Sara Spur (top) and Kotuku, by Bas Cuthbert.
Club meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at the Orewa Community Church, 6 Amorino Rd, Red Beach, and workshops are held on the first Thursday of the month. The next meeting will be held on August 20, at 7.15pm. New members welcome.
