PSNZ 62nd National Convention Update

Blenheim2014logoThere has been a fantastic early response to the 2014 PSNZ Convention, being organised by the Marlborough Camera Club in Blenheim. There have already been 120 registrations!

Some workshops are now full and others are filling fast.  If you haven’t already done so, register soon to avoid disappointment.  Don’t forget that PSNZ members get lower registration rates; if you aren’t already a member it’s worth joining just for that, not to mention all the other benefits.

For those coming to the Convention, also think about arranging your accommodation. There are still some places at greatly reduced costs. The website has full details here.

For any enquiries about the National Convention please email convention2014@photography.org.nz.

Natex

An important part of the PSNZ National Convention is the annual PSNZ/Canon National Exhibition of Photography, often abbreviated to Natex.

In 2014, Natex is being organised by the Nelson Camera Club. They have set up a website with lots of information about Natex 2014, and where the entry system will be live in February 2014. For any enquiries about Natex 2014 please email natexnelson@gmail.com.

 Workshops and Field Trips

The workshops which are now full are:

  • WS5 Photography with Tony Hewitt
  • WS6 Photography with Peter Eastway
  • WS8 and WS16 Street Photography with Tony Bridge

The FT1 Field Trip to the Marlborough Sounds is also full – but, don’t forget that there are still places on WS15 – the overnight trip to Anakiwa Outward Bound on Friday/Saturday, end of the Queen Charlotte Track.  This is an opportunity to enjoy some early morning photography of the Marlborough Sounds and natural bush. Video/fusion not essential!

Presenters – Don Pittham

Besides the workshops and field trips there’s also a great lineup of presenters, including Tony Hewitt and Peter Eastway. Check out the full list here.

One of the local presenters is our very own Don Pittham from Nelson. The convention organisers have asked him to speak about his Natural History work. Although he’s agreed to do this, he warns that he may well wander from the straight and narrow nature path to consider Life, the Universe and Everything in his forty two minutes of talk-time.

If you are curious enough to learn about…

– and the sort of opportunity that must always be taken … then this presentation is for you. It’s on Friday, which is of course POETS day, so there will be poetry, but there won’t be a lonely cloud or a host of golden daffodils even vaguely on the horizon.
