Speaking At APSCON, Albury 2007

Each year, the Australian Photographic Society has its annual convention. The first one I ever attended was in Hobart, Tasmania, where I not only got to meet the late Galen Rowell, but also got to spend a day shooting with him. He wanted a car to get around in, we just happened to have one! Its not every day that happens. I remember being very upset when I received the email that told me he had been tragically killed in a light plane crash.I have also attended other Australian Photographic Society conventions, or APSCONs, in Shepparton, where I spoke, and also in Canberra and Toowoomba, where I was also invited to speak. This year, the invitation was once again extended, and so off to Albury we went.I spoke on the subject of People Photography, and I am pleased to say it was very well received. We met some lovely people and reacquainted ourselves with some familiar faces. I was also tentatively invited to speak at a similar event in Christchurch, New Zealand, so I certainly hope that happens!

Shelton, it was great to catch up with you and "She who must be obeyed".
Your presentation was excellent, of course, humourous, full of information, and especially so, informative and helpful.
We have some good stories to tell you after this week.
AND!!!!!! That lens, known as Shelton, has been used at least 3 times for shooting sessions.
Great work again
LoL M & G
