Pho­tog­ra­phy lec­ture

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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
