The Power of Personal Projects

This Personal Project Group has been established to provide a further creative opportunity for club members to work on a project of their own choosing over the course of the year. It provides a means of sharing and collaborating on ideas for our projects. In addition to our physical meetings every two months at the Bracken Ridge Library, images can be posted online in our Facebook Group, ACC Personal Projects. Guidance and advice is sought and freely given by members of the Group. Please make full use of it as you develop your Personal Project.
The Group is now welcoming any new club members to join.

Mentorship

It’s always exciting to see us build stronger relationships with each other. There are several photographers in this group offering mentorship to anyone who would like to grow their skills. Click on the Mentorship button near the top of the Facebook Personal Projects Group page and connect with a partner-in-crime or just speak informally to the person you wish to connect with.

The Galleries give members of the PPG the exclusive opportunity to showcase their work throughout the year. Get your images up in lights and be seen by everyone who visits the website.

Resources

We don’t always have all the answers to your questions, so here are tools and resources for you to use when developing your projects. Everything from producing a Photobook, creating an Audio Visual, Photographic Techniques, Photoshop, Lightroom, Sequencing, Photo materials and equipment suppliers and more.

Meetings

The group meets in person on the fourth Monday of every second month in the fully equipped meeting room at the Bracken Ridge Library. Meetings begin at 7.15pm and finish around 10pm. All meetings are announced on the Events Calendar on the website and of course you can always catch up with others on the ACC Personal Projects Group on Facebook.

Event Planning

When all the finishing touches to your project have been completed, you will have the opportunity with your fellow group members to present your work to the club community and visitors to the club in January and February of the following year. This is the culmination of all your hard work throughout the year.

How to Join

You don’t have to be doing a project, you may just wish to contribute to the many informative group discussions. The easiest way to join is to “friend” Peter Law on Facebook, that way he can send you an invite and you will be accepted.
Membership of this Group is free. This is yet another great way to collaborate with your camera club friends, free of competition, and to participate in discussions on our common love of photography.
