ABOUT US

The Focus Seascape and Landscape Photography Inc (Focus Photographers) was formed in Sydney, Australia in 2012. It is a not-for-profit association dedicated to serving the interests of its Members.

Originally based on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, its reach now extends to Sydney’s South, the Central Coast, the Blue Mountains, Victoria and further afield. Via social media, Focus now reaches a national and international audience.

Our aim is to grow and to strengthen the community with an ever expanding list of opportunities and benefits for our Members.

Membership of the Focus Group is free for those who join via Facebook or Flickr.

But, in return for a very modest annual membership subscription, Focus Plus Members can enjoy a growing range of benefits. These include price discounts exclusively negotiated with Focus Sponsors, and advance notice of forthcoming events and trips – that might otherwise sell out quickly when made available to the general membership.

Focus is run by a Committee made up of 11 Members; all voted into position annually by Focus Plus Members. The Committee meets monthly and is responsible for ensuring that its decisions are taken in the best interests of Focus Members, and support the Group’s vision, purpose and aims.

OUR VISION

Transparency and accountability to its Members are core values that set the Focus Group apart.

Our aim is to build a strong community of photographers who, while striving to improve their own skills, also lend support to others on their unique photographic journey.

Achieving this vision requires goodwill, energy and commitment from many hundreds of Focus Members who contribute their knowledge and share their skills freely.

Focus provides opportunities for its Members to grow and to learn, via regular free weekend shoots, authorised Trips and Educational events, and via its presence on various social media platforms.

Focus is also supported by a number of carefully selected Sponsors. We endorse their products and services in exchange for the benefits they can offer our Members. And in turn, our Members support them.

Focus is dedicated to the advancement of landscape and seascape photography in Australia. Our aim is to become Australia’s pre-eminent photographic community in this category and, in doing so, to inspire the next generation of Australia’s leading landscape photographers.
