Shutterpups will have a photography exhibition during PrideFEST | OUTInPerth

Community photography group Shutterpups will showcase their recent work during PrideFEST with an exhibit at the Vincent City Library.

The exhibition will open on Thursday November 3rd with a vernissage from 6-7pm, everyone is welcome and no reservation is required.

Come and discover photographs in the foyer of the Library of the City of Vincent during their November exhibition.

Shutterpups started as a humble Facebook group, set up as a mechanism for friends with a similar interest in street photography to get together, socialize and take photos each month. Since then, the group has expanded into the wider LGBTIQA+ community.

Shutterpups leader Chris Hill has passed all the strange things on RTRFM last year to explain how the photography group works.

“A lot of photography clubs have meetings and you go out and take pictures and then come in and join a competition, but we want to go out and take pictures, join in groups, meet and get involved.

“At the end of each shoot, we’ll say to everyone, ‘Show us your most interesting shots’, not necessarily your best shots, it’s a chance to get out there with your camera, explore and you challenge a bit.”

Hill also said the group also allows everyone to share their expertise, as there are so many different types of photography and everyone has their own particular interest.

The group welcomes anyone LGBTIQA+ or an ally, and it doesn’t matter what kind of camera you have.

“We’ve had a few people come in and just have their iPhones,” Hill said. “iPhones take great photos, and you can watch your composition and challenge yourself with your gear.”

In 2019, OUTinPerth took to the streets with band founder Gary Davies snapping images of buildings across the city – which was the theme of their monthly gathering.

Head to Vincent’s City Library in November to check out the group’s most recent work.
