Photo expo

The hottest ticket on the pho­tog­ra­phy cal­en­dar gets even hot­ter this year as the pro­gramme for both pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers and the pho­to­graphic com­mu­nity at large grows even big­ger

New Zealand D-Photo - - CONTENTS - Info­cus 2018, Ex­po­sure, and the Iris Awards are set to run over July 5–9. Check info­cus.org.nz for more de­tails as they are an­nounced.

Each year, the New Zealand In­sti­tute of Pro­fes­sional Pho­tog­ra­phy (NZIPP) puts to­gether an ex­cit­ing con­ven­tion of all things pho­to­graphic, and this year it has a huge ar­ray of work­shops, live shoots, and other as­sorted events open to the public.

Now in its third year, the group’s Ex­po­sure photo show, held in Welling­ton in early July, gives any­one with an in­ter­est in pho­tog­ra­phy the op­por­tu­nity to learn from some of the world’s top pho­tog­ra­phers, at­tend live shoots, and demo some of the fresh­est new gear on the shelves.

Work­shops this year in­clude two from renowned Aus­trian beauty pho­tog­ra­pher Emil Bilin­ski — one on light­ing and the other on por­trai­ture — while Swiss fine-art pho­tog­ra­pher Athena Carey will host one on long-ex­po­sure land­scapes; Aus­tralian dig­i­tal artist Karen Al­sop will demon­strate shoot­ing with a set; and lo­cals Mark Gee and Cas­san­dra English will host classes on as­tropho­tog­ra­phy and new­born pho­tog­ra­phy, re­spec­tively.

A live shoot with glam­our su­per­star Sue Bryce, a shoot with dancers by Stephan Bollinger, and a green-screen shoot with Karen Al­sop will all be free to at­tend, though book­ing in ad­vance is highly rec­om­mended — visit info­cus.org.nz for de­tails.

The Ex­po­sure show will run con­cur­rently with the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s Info­cus 2018 event for pro­fes­sional, as­pir­ing, and stu­dent pho­tog­ra­phers, with some of the most ac­claimed pho­tog­ra­phers from around the globe vis­it­ing to in­spire with talks and teach new skills.

In ad­di­tion to those pre­sent­ing at Ex­po­sure, the Info­cus line-up this year in­cludes wed­ding pho­tog­ra­pher Michelle Phillips, dig­i­tal artist Gee Greenslade, Aus­tralian leg­end Nick Ghio­nis, com­mer­cial pho­tog­ra­pher Steve Scalone, and busi­ness lead­er­ship ex­pert Suzanne Mase­field.

Also run­ning dur­ing the pro­gramme is the Iris Awards, the coun­try’s most ac­claimed pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phy awards. The public is in­vited to view the open-forum judg­ing of the com­pe­ti­tion — at Shed 6 on Queen’s Wharf, Welling­ton — as well as at­tend the post-print judg­ing party on Satur­day, July 7.
