Try before you buy – you are welcome as a visitor but if you are still around after three meetings we will expect a subscription! If you are keen to submit your photos for assessment you must be financial.
Web Pages - articles, information, events, promotions etc
We would like to encourage members to become more involved in our Website, and help make it a resource that we can all gain insperation, and help from.
If you have had, or are planning, an interesting excersion it would be great if you could write a small article (with some photos if you want), and share it with us.
If you know of a good photographic oppurtunity coming up, or would like to have some company with like minded individuals, then we can put this on the Website for you.
Please contact the firstname.lastname@example.org
looking forward to reading your emails
Changes to our Programme
It is with great regret that I must tell you that there will be no further workshops on the first Wednesday of the month.
This is because of falling attendance. In their place a shorter workshop will be help after the Set Subject evening.The programme so far is
March: AGM before the Set Subject judging, so no workshop
April: "Street Photography" run by Breen Porter, FPSNZ ARPS LBIPP EFIAP
May: " Landscape Photography" run by Doug Moulin, APSNZ AFIAP EFIAP
June: "What lens do I buy next?" run by Terry Cockfield APSNZ
AGM - The AGM will be held on the 12th March at 7.30pm in the club rooms and will be followed by the Set Subject judging
.Please think about joining the committee, we need more committee members!!! Agenda following late February.

Just days to go before Early Bird Registration closes. There are still plenty of events to choose from (despite some potential registrants suggesting that “everything is full”) – far from it as many additional Workshops and outings have been added to the program and there are opportunities to meet with Tony Hewitt and Peter Eastway outside of their Workshops. Do not leave your registration to the last minute as Field Trips and Workshops may soon fill up during February. Take a look at the Convention Website www.coloursofmarlborough.org.nz
Outward Bound is getting pretty excited about the workshop (WS15) at Anakiwa – they really want photographers to get into the action packed morning schedule with Simon Woolf’s help (with camera(s) in hand).
There has been lots of interest in Bruce Girdwood’s workshop on Neutral Density filters, so Bruce is now undertaking a new Workshop (WS19) on Saturday April 26th at Rarangi Beach and environs – participants will be out and about with camera. Whilst Bruce’s talk is entitled Visual Design and Composition, it will entail use of neutral density filters, movement and many other challenges which a site like Rarangi provides – there can be massive waves, and many coloured stones with creatures and flowers nestling amongst them. The Field Trip is based at Rarangi Community Hall where Bruce will lecture and critique photographs - refreshments at hand!
Canon Full Frame in action lit by CR Kennedy Workshop (WS10) on Friday April 25th is now at the Vintage Car Club in Brayshaw Park. Models and old cars and Canon cameras to try out are provided and there are facilities for photograph critiquing. Simon Woolf is expected to be there as well and to help get the most out of this venue. Additional to this Workshop is a train ride to get participants to Brayshaw. The small train leaves from near the Convention Centre and meanders through Blenheim to Brayshaw providing another photographic challenge en route.
Don’t forget the Workshops on onOne Perfect Suite (WS14 and WS18) which are being conducted by Tony Bridge.
The Convention has received much support from the wine industry so the wine will be flowing. Come and enjoy!
