Young's Cherry Festival may not be happening this year but that fact hasn't stopped the Young Camera Club receiving a significant increase in support for its annual photographic competition.

On Sunday, October 22, Graeme Culbert judged the Cherry Festival Photographic Exhibition.

Young Camera Club thanked Graeme for his time, expertise and feedback.

Graeme is an experienced photographer having worked as a photographer in the RAAF, along with running a number of Sydney photographic studios with his business partner, where he dealt in a variety of photographic areas.

Today, after moving to the central west, he continues to take photos and has established a personal photographic display in Ungarie, a small village out from West Wyalong.

Opening Night

Opening night of the Young Camera Club's Chery Festival exhibition will be tonight, Friday, November 27, at 7:30pm, at the Millard Centre.
