Time Out says
Get to know the minds behind the lenses of industry-leading photographers in this two-day conference
Budding Sydney photographers can network with industry greats at the second iteration of this photography conference. TV journalist Ray Martin will be back on hosting duties, bringing his own enthusiasm for the art of photography to live talks, workshops and intensive panel discussions with six well-known Australian and international photographers.
Panelists and speakers at this year’s event include National Geographic photojournalist Ami Vitale, who has travelled to more than 100 countries to capture profound natural beauty and shocking tragedy, and Jasin Boland who’s worked on the set of movies like The Matrix and Mad Max as a film still photographer. They’ll be joined by Australian landscape photographer Christian Fletcher, ocean image capturer Ray Collins, digital photographic artist Tamara Dean, and Stephen Dupont, who captures the human dignity behind peoples and cultures experiencing conflict and marginalisation.
They’ll be sharing their artistic war-stories, photography processes and answering questions at the Sydney International Convention Centre.
Tickets for the two-day event cost from $495-$900, so you’ll want to come prepared with questions to make the most of it. For a little extra incentive, this year the conference is also offering one keen amateur photographer the chance to win a career-boost from Aperture Australia in the form of a free double pass to the conference and the opportunity to chat with Ray Martin on stage as they present their work. They’ll also receive one-on-one mentoring and a dinner with speakers from the conference.
