The Big Night
An annual event that I attend in Perth is the WAPF’s Canon Click West. A great competition for members of West Australian camera clubs with fantastic prizes. This year, for the 2nd year in a row I was fortunate enough to have an image selected as a finalist in the Natural Portraiture category. My “Fire Starter” image was taken on my trip to Namibia last year and is a favourite of mine.
Here’s a link to the finalists in all categories Canon Click West. Much to my surprise this year, I also made it into the top 10 for the portfolio prize. Although I only had one entry make the top 10, my other three images obviously rated high enough in their categories to get me through. This was the one to win, a Kimberley cruise with Kimberley Expeditions, congratulations to Marie Kingsley for taking out this award.
Included for the first time this year was a weekend of events including photo walks and workshops. They covered topics like printing, Eizo monitors, making photo books, speed lights and the list goes on.
I stayed in Perth overnight and just attended the Melville Camera Club hosted walk around the Heathcote Cultural Precinct for sunrise on the Saturday morning. We didn’t have the spectacular colour that we’d had earlier in the week but it was still nice to be out.
