Annual Exhibition

The Gala Night of Portfolios

Last Thursday night we held our annual Gala Night of Portfolios.  Members who have participated in the Portfolio project this year all presented their work in a "gallery" type exhibition.  We were fortunate to have professional artist Robyn Ross to make some comments on the work and discuss the thoughts, ideas and execution of the work with the authors.  

This year we again broke our own record of work on show, with a total of 30 Portfolios on view, comprising audio visuals, slide shows, books and of course the majority being a series of mounted prints.  A selection of the portfolios presented can be found on our Portfolio page, or click HERE to go directly to the page.

Members also had the challenge of selecting two peoples choice awards, congratulations goes to Diane McKenzie and Margaret Miller.

Canon THE LAB

Canon Australia is unleashing ‘Evolution’, the second video from The Lab – Canon’s new content series designed to help photographers shift their creative thinking behind the lens. Our very own Debbie Mooney was invited along. Check out the 'Evolution' video here.

In this video, Canon challenges photographers to think outside the box when approaching a subject, no matter how exciting or mundane it is. To prove that inspiration can be found everywhere, Canon gave six photographers everyday objects and one simple rule: Nobody shoots the same photo twice. 

The director, Chris Ireland, pushed the photographers to their limits, not allowing them to step down until they had completely reimaged the object. 

The launch of 'Evolution' follows the unprecedented reception of Canon Australia’s first video, titled ‘Decoy’, and is the second in a six part series of photography experiments, three videos of which are being published.
