A Dose of Photography Inspiration at the Sydney Aperture Australia Conference

It was a first for Andy & I to be in the crowd at a conference, usually we’re the event photographers haha. At the start of the year when setting our goals, we made knowledge, development and training a priority to benefit ourselves and the business. After some research, I found the Aperture Australia Photography Conference in Sydney and with it’s incredible line-up of speakers I didn’t hesitate in booking our first photography conference.

In addition to attending the event, I also won the VIP competition including VIP front row tickets, dinner with the speakers and sponsors and guaranteed spots in the breakout workshops! What an incredible experience….

The event was hosted by renowned journalist Ray Martin with speakers across a number of fields including: Ray Collins - Oceanic Photographer; Tamara Dean - Photographic Artist; Jasin Boland - Film Stills Photographer; Christian Fletcher - Aust. Landscape Icon; Stephen Dupont - Conflict Photographer; and Ami Vitale - Nat Geo Photojournalist. We were ever inspired by the different genres and really took us back to our roots of photography, the passion, the story, the emotion, the reason why we started in this world - to create art, stories and emotional imagery.

See some of our captures taking in all the amazing speeches in the front row and a little behind the scenes vlog of our experience over the weekend. What a way to finish the financial year!

4 workshops, 23 hours of training and a whole lot of fun with the ICPS Photography Society!

What a weekend! Andy and I have just returned from a fun-filled 4 days away for a photography course weekend in Carmila for the Isaac Coast Photography Society, RADF and Isaac Community. 2 days, 4 workshops, 23 hours of training - advanced processing, studio lighting and posing, natural light photography and day/night flash. 

A big thank-you to members of the ICPS for organising and Isaac Regional Council for supporting this community with a RADF grant to make this happen. We have been lucky enough to work with ICPS a few times over our working careers and we couldn't ask for a more enthusiastic, involved and passionate group of people. We always leave these workshops feeling proud of what the members are achieving with their photography and happy that we can help them along on this journey. 

See some of the behind the scenes fun below :)
