About our club

Hawkesbury Camera Club offers a great deal to both the newer and the more experienced photographer, we provide monthly competitions for prints and projected images.

The Hawkesbury Camera Club Inc. has been in existence for over 70 years having been established in the early 1950s by a number of dedicated photographers led by the first president Stan Stevens.

Hawkesbury City Council have honoured our first President Stan Stevens by naming a Room at the Public Library after him.

Our members’ interests cover a wide and varied range of the photographic spectrum; ranging from beginners to professional photographers, using both the newer digital or the traditional film cameras.

The objective of the club is to stimulate the photographic interests of its members, by combining education, assistance, competition and social contact in a friendly, comfortable and informal situation.

Photo Resizing Photoshop

Are you ready for the 2024 Competition Year?

One big change to Competition Entries this year is the new online submission process as opposed to the outdated email system. All entries need to be submitted digitally using the new platform. Same as previous, if entering the PRINT Section a digital copy needs to be uploaded, if entering the DIGITAL Section then only a digital copy needs to be uploaded.

On the new My Photo Club Platform all Digital Images are to be uploaded and meet the following criteria:
Max Size: Two (2) Megabytes.
Max Width: 1920 pixels.
Max Height: 1200 pixels.

To help members with resizing we will be posting tutorials covering resizing using various software packages.

Our first tutorial is resizing using Adobe Photoshop.
Click here to view YouTube Video

If you need assistance with resizing using a different software package or know of other tutorials you can contact either Jeff ( or Marian ( and let us know.
We are here to help you. We can also offer some personal assistance to members.

We will be demonstrating the new online submission process at our Q&A Meeting at The Richmond Club on Wednesday 14th February. You are welcome to bring your laptop along and follow the demonstration. See our events Calendar for more details.

Welcome to Hawkesbury Camera Club’s NEW Website.

Launching for 2024 the Hawkesbury Camera Club has moved to an online platform for members. This is an exciting time for the Club.

New Website Launch

The new platform was recommended to the Club’s Committee by third parties towards the end of 2023 when enquiries were made about upgrading the website and capabilities. Following the recommendations the Committee investigated the new “My Photo Club” Platform. Over following weeks further investigation, testing and research assured the Committee selected the best option for the club, not only today but for the future.

There will be some adjusting to the new platform in the short term. My Photo Club supplies many ‘how-to’ videos to help members transition. The main changes are online renewals and online competition entries.

The new platform is in use by many clubs across Australia and overseas now. Several Committee members have used the platform at other photography clubs over the past 12 months, and therefore have first hand experience as an end user.

We will be providing comprehensive help emails and videos in the near future to support members.

We welcome constructive feedback and ideas to improve the new platform. We are also here to help the membership make a seamless transition. Please feel free to reach out to a Committee Member for a chat or to offer new ideas.
