Tips from the best

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Award-win­ning land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher Tom Putt is com­ing to Ba­rooga to­mor­row night to show Fin­ley and Dis­trict Cam­era Club mem­bers some tricks of the trade.

He will be at Ba­rooga Pub­lic School li­brary from 7.30 pm to 10 pm, where he will talk all things pho­tog­ra­phy to the group of ama­teurs from the lo­cal dis­trict.

Mr Putt is an award-win­ning fine art land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher and pho­to­graphic leader based in Mel­bourne.

With more than 150 in­ter­na­tional and na­tional land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy awards, Mr Putt’s pas­sion was driven by his de­sire to show­case the beauty of the land­scape.

Re­garded as one of Aus­tralia’s most pro­lific land­scape pho­tog­ra­phers, he spends many months of the year cre­at­ing new pho­to­graphs for lim­ited and open edi­tion prints and book projects.

Fin­ley and Dis­trict Cam­era Club’s Shirley Cold­well said Mr Putt com­ing to Ba­rooga was a lit­tle bit of luck in some ways.

‘‘He comes from Morn­ing­ton and I was down that way for the VAPS con­ven­tion two years ago in Frankston and met him there,’’ she said.

‘‘I asked him if he would like to come up here and he agreed to it and we have sort of been in com­mu­ni­ca­tion ever since.’’

She said it was fan­tas­tic the club could bring such a high­qual­ity op­er­a­tor to the area.

‘‘I knew his work was re­ally re­ally good, he does a lot of aerial pho­tos from he­li­copters and aero­planes which are quite cap­ti­vat­ing,’’ Mrs Cold­well said.
