The PSNZ Southern Regional Convention hosted by the Ashburton Photographic Society from 12 – 14 October 2012 was a great success. An interesting line-up of speakers included Alan Dick, Photographer and Editor of NZ TODAY; Roland Dale, Tramping Fiordland; and Greg Burns, Forensic Imaging.
There were two field trips – one to Longbeach Estate on Saturday and the other to the Asburton Aviation Museum on Sunday. The hospitality was fantastic, the food delicious and in significant abundance, and the organisation of the event was superb.
Photo Warehouse, a sponsor of the event, attracted a lot of interest with their trade stand and it appeared that it was commercially worthwhile they attended. They certainly had some special deals for those attending the convention. The Epson stand was also well patronised.
