Queenstown tomorrow!

I’ve been counting down the sleeps – I’m off to Queenstown first thing tomorrow (barring any more huge aftershocks closing Christchurch airport, that is…) for the annual New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP) “Infocus” conference.

The keynote speaker is Michael Grecco, one of the world’s best portrait photographers (with Time, Forbes, Rolling Stone and Esquire credits among many others), and top Australian wedding and portrait photographers Graham Monro and Robert Piccoli will also speak.

The conference is preceded by three days of judging of the prestigious Iris Awards – always a great opportunity to learn from the masters. It’s open to the public, so if you’re in town and interested, swing past the Millennium Hotel.
