Our aim is to promote, improve, share and enjoy photography in Toowoomba and the surrounding district offering many services, all specifically designed to improve photography and photographic skills in a friendly social atmosphere. Membership is open to all comers regardless of whether you are a beginner, an amateur or a professional photographer.
We meet at DeMolay House, 90 Margaret Street, Toowoomba at 7:00pm on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.

As we near the end of the 2017-18 Competition Year we ask recipients of our perpetual trophies last year to return these to the club at our next TPS Club Meeting. This will enable preparation for the 2017-18 awards to begin.
Our next TPS Skills Night is on next Tuesday, 27 March 2018 at 7:00pm. This month we’ll look more closely at the importance of composition in photography.
For this month the Image Challenge is “Wasted”. Please send up to five images for this Challenge, together with up to five images for the Field Day and five for the Favourites to be included in the Skills Night audio-visual to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by 6:00pm on Monday 26th March 2018.
To perpetuate the memory of our late member Alice Black, the club has introduced the ‘Alice Black Memorial Trophy’ to be contested each year on a perpetual basis.
Starting next Aggregate Competition Night (13 March), door raffles will resume…with a difference.
We will now run them over a month, or until the 100-only spaces sellout, on our ‘100-club’ board. We will draw the winner out on the following competition night. Each space will cost $2. You will be invited to write your name and phone number into the unused square of your choosing.
The prize will be better value, photographic in nature and useful to most people.
Our first raffle will be for a Vanguard travel monopod. These are great, giving you an extra stop, or two, with the stability provided.
These raffles will greatly assist our Society’s fundraising needs.
Please bring $2 coins with you!
Members, please bring along any print image, for display at the Exhibition, to our next Aggregate Competition night (Tuesday 13th March).
The exhibition will run from the 19th to the 23rd March in the CUA offices, Ruthven Street Toowoomba CBD. Images, including frames and mats, should be no larger than 16″ x 20″ in size, black preferable (but if in frames, white is acceptable).
If bringing along in a frame, to sell, please include the pricing and your name on the reverse side (a small, neatly printed card/paper suggesting the artist, the name of the print, the pricing etc, would be appropriate).
Our next club meeting is at 7:00pm this coming Tuesday, 13th March 2018. There have been 106 images submitted by 36 club members for our March 2018 Aggregate Competition which will be judged this evening by John Stewart.
