The man leading the revival of Horsham Camera Club and a talented young photographer will give this year’s Con Kroker Memorial Lecture.
Horsham Regional Art Gallery will present Michael Gellert in conversation with Baillie Farley on Sunday.
Gallery director Adam Harding encouraged the community to attend the event from 3pm to 4.30pm.
“Michael is a graduate of RMIT’S photography program and has exhibited extensively in Horsham and Victoria,” he said.
“He is currently leading the community in reviving the Horsham Camera Club.
“Through his professional life as the business development manager at Horsham’s HC Pro, Michael is a master printer on the cutting edge of contemporary commercial printing practices. Yet he can still be found practising the dark arts of printing.”
Baillie is completing his VCE at Horsham College.
During the past two years, he has participated in the gallery’s youth photography program for gifted and talented students.
Ballie’s passion and gift for photography saw him win the 2017 Central West Astronomical Society David Malin Astrophotography Award for youth photographers.
“Michael and Baillie will discuss the technical aspects, equipment used and the method undertaken to capture award-winning photographs,” Mr Harding said.
“They will help people understand how to capture our environment better, pushing the technical aspects of your camera, understanding new opportunities to print or to just celebrate photography in the Wimmera.” traditional hand
