Commencing on Friday 25th May through to Monday 28th May the convention will kick off with an official welcome cocktail party and viewing of the Interclub print exhibition on the Friday night.

The Saturday and Sunday programmes are full of excellent speakers and workshops that will have everyone engaged in informative photographic sessions along with photographic opportunities on Monday to round off a great long weekend of photography.

Headlined by renowned Arctic and Photographer of the Year, Joshua Holko, who will present two outstanding talks on his amazing Arctic Circle photography, and Glyn Lavender well known Australian and International photographic coach who will steer us through “Refining our vision among the Chaos” before embarking on a live model shoot to demonstrate the techniques of model lighting.

Local speakers and photographers have not been forgotten either with Oat Vaiyaboon aka HangingPixels will present on the latest trend in Drone photography. Another fantastic local is Elizabeth O’Callaghan local author and historian.

Photographic opportunities will also be high on the agenda with Ian Rolfe conducting two open landscape workshops and the Warrnambool Camera Club presenting an open Model shoot nearby for all of those who like to just get out and capture great images. Ian will also hold a photoshoot of the iconic Childers Cove on Monday morning.  The finish off the weekend you will also have the opportunity to visit one of Warrnambool’s favourite attractions, Flagstaff Hill. On the Sunday night you have the option of attending the Light & Sound show, for a small additional cost.
