2020 Update No. 14 Australian Speaker

2020 Update no. 14 Australian Speaker

As promised we have put together some presentations via zoom for you, the first one is this Monday the 22nd:

Mon June 22: Putting Together a Cohesive Collection

Topic: Putting Together a Cohesive Collection by Ben Stofl
When: Monday June 22: 7:30pm – 9.00pm
Where: Zoom:  Meeting ID: 599 367 8680

Ben is a former member of the Queensland Camera Group, talented photographer and PSQ accredited judge

Ben will talk to us on the subject of putting together a cohesive collection of images, or a set of images which support each other.  Ben’s presentation will be interesting to all members as the need to assemble collections happens at the end of every year when we enter our portfolio competitions.  Ben will present to our particulars of a 6 image collection. Working on a collection or body of work is also a great way to take your photography to the next level and we’d be thrilled to think that our members were working on projects as well as individual images.

Ben has successfully entered many National and International photographic exhibitions and has held numerous roles in the photographic community including four years as the president the Gold Coast photographic Society and Gympie Camera Club. Ben has also been the chairperson of the Judges Executive of PSQ for several years.
