Happy Snappers (Photography Group)
Mackay Golf Club
Mackay/Bucasia Road

The U3a Snappers Group is committed to teaching photography in a fun and friendly environment.
We will help with the technicalities of your digital camera whatever the make or model number.
We meet at the Mackay Golf Club from 10.00 am – 11.00 am on the last Friday of the month. We also have an outing each month on the previous Friday to different locations to practice and have a little fun.
We learn by doing and sharing in a friendly atmosphere.

This year we will be looking to improve confidence in the use of technology, guided by Alan.

Please wear your U3A name badges for the benefit of our newer members.

If you are having difficulties with your camera, please bring any instruction manuals you have. We do know that many are only available via the internet. Happy Snapping.
To start the New Year may I wish every body a fantastic coming Twelve Months from the “Snapper Group “.There is a wonderful world out there waiting to be recorded .It does not matter what you use , an expensive digital camera , your mobile phone or “I” pad , record what you see and love and share it with each other .

Among the “Snappers there are those who have years of experience to the “Leaners” like me ,if you have a problem or question,there is always someone who can help and willing to give advic. There is even one senior member who understands “Apple “ computers .

The year 2019 was interesting and varied for our group with field trips to a wide range of diverse areas, from the Water Towers at Lamberts Beach, Greenmount, the wonderful garden at Gargett belonging to one of our members, the fascinating “Light Show” at the Botanic Gardens plus the conducted “Walk Around” by staff of the Gardens which gave us a chance to try our skill at “ MACRO” or close up photography,of the insects and wild life living there. We were fortunate to have local and international Artist and Photographer,John Pickup who gave us some useful tips on taking “Portrait” photos. Geoff Cunningham .
