Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion/news -

The Cam­era and Pho­tog­ra­phy Expo will be held in Mata­mata next Fri­day for the first time.

Ko­dak Store Mata­mata is host­ing the event and new own­ers Marnie and Paul Suther­land said it was a chance for peo­ple to see an­other side of the pho­tog­ra­phy in­dus­try.

‘‘There are lots of ways to trans­form and re- cre­ate your im­ages and the best way for us to demon­strate the va­ri­ety was with a fun expo.’’

Pho­tog­ra­phy was some­thing many peo­ple had a pas­sion for, and was a way to cap­ture life’s spe­cial mo­ments, said Marnie.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Nikon, Olym­pus and Pana­sonic will be on hand and there will be a photo booth and re­touch­ing demon­stra­tions. There will also be an ex­clu­sive sec­tion for hunters.

‘‘ The reps are go­ing to bring a huge range of prod­ucts that we can­not stock in­store, in­clud­ing scopes and binoc­u­lars,’’ said Marnie.

From 3pm there will be a bouncy cas­tle and sausage siz­zle .

There will also be the chance to win ei­ther a pro­fes­sional por­trait ses­sion or a pho­tog­ra­phy les­son.

The expo will run from 10am till 9pm.
