Origins & History

In 2009 a group of photography students (in the Macarthur area of NSW Australia) were asked by their tutor, Debra Pearson, if they’d like to meet on a voluntary basis and work towards a student exhibition.

The newly formed MCC (Macarthur Community College) Photography Exhibition Group met monthly over the following year with Debra to discuss their work, develop ideas and photograph together.

From February 2011 to December 2017 the Group held print exhibitions of their work at Fairfield Museum & Art Gallery; Camden Library, Narellan Library, H J Daley Campbelltown Library, Liverpool City Library and Mt Annan Botanic Gardens. We greatly appreciated the support of these community venues. The Group also participated at numerous community events.

In 2013 the Group website was created by original on-going member David Kelleher.

In 2017 the Group formally changed their name and logo to MacPhotoGroup. (To reflect their website name and future exhibition directions.) Their final print exhibition was held in December 2017.

A very special “thank you” goes to Macarthur Community College for their on-going support of our print exhibitions, excursions and community participation from 2009 to 2017.

In 2018 the MacPhotoGroup changed from exhibiting their work as prints (as well as through their website), to exhibiting their images only through the website, whilst retaining their excursion program. Debra retired as group co-ordinator (but continues as a mentor) and David continues as website co-ordinator.
