Photo Opportunities – L’Étape Australia by Tour de France

L’Étape Australia by Tour de France is coming to the Illawarra and with it comes a plethora of fantastic photo opportunities.

The event is scheduled for Friday 27th and Saturday, 28th November 2020.

Areas included in the race route are Kiama, Kangaroo Valley, Jamberoo, Berry, Robertson, Fitzroy Falls and more. The race route map (for the Saturday) is available here.

Please note, this is not being organised as a Club outing. Rather, it is being brought to your attention as it may be of interest to you, to go along and do your own thing.

Information contained in this email is from the L’Étape Australia website, and the FAQs are here. Please check the website for details again, closer to the race date.

Enjoy!

AIPP Iniative

We have receivedthis information from Matt Palmer from the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP):

The Covid-19 pandemic has severely affected the photography profession and industry, camera clubs and special interest groups. With all the Government restrictions, as well as the need to protect our and your members, this is a challenging time for all of us to maintain connection and encourage our passion for photography.

AIPP members have taken the initiative to host online Q&A sessions; these are some of Australia’s top photographers. These events are available FREE to members and non-members. The sessions are recorded and will be made available to our members in the resource library.

We currently have scheduled:

Scott Portelli – Experienced underwater and wildlife photographer

Mieke Boynton – Landscape photographer, ex-Olympian, and Australia’s first winner of the Epson International Pano Awards

Alex Cearns OAM – Prolific animal photographer and community builder.

Matt Palmer – Landscape and 2019 Australian Professional Photographer of the Year

Abraham Joffe ACS – Internationally awarded filmmaker and creator of ‘Tales Of Light’

Tony Hewitt – One of the world’s top landscape photographers

We are continually adding to this lineup. To register your members need only visit https://www.aipp.com.au/events and select the sessions they wish to attend. Once again these Q&A events are FREE. The link details for each session are emailed to participants approximately 24 hours before the session.

We also have a directory of Covid-19 resources at http://aippblog.com.au/2020/covid-19-resources/ which is accessible to anyone. This is being regularly updated as information comes to hand.

The AIPP recently introduced a new and inclusive membership category, General Member. We have an introductory offer of $12 per month for the first year. There is a lot to gain and experience through membership including a video library, specimen contracts (for those conducting business or wanting to), business resources, access to the National AIPP Members Facebook Community and opportunities for professional development. More information on General Membership is available at https://www.aipp.com.au/join/new-member-category

I hope these initiatives may be of interest to you and your community and that our free events can help connect our communities around a shared passion for photography.
