Ray Martin is the host for a two-day photographic conference, Aperture Australia, to be held at the newly-renovated International Conference Centre (ICC) in Darling Harbour, April 28-29.
The event will comprise a series of presentations and panel discussions over two days featuring Ken Duncan, fine art photographer Alexia Sinclair, and celebrity portrait photographer Gary Heery.
It will be held in the large-capacity Pyrmont Theatre at the ICC.
Also joining the conference talks and live panel discussions will be landscape photographer Murray Fredericks, adventure sports photographer Krystle Wright, Aquabumps’ founder Eugene Tan, and documentary photographers Megan Lewis and Jack Picone.
TV journalist and avid photographer, Ray Martin, will take the reins as host of the event.
‘There’s never been a photography event like this in Australia,’ said Ray Martin. ‘Ticket holders can access advice from influential, award-winning Australian photographers whose images have made an impact far beyond our country’s shores. I’m excited to explore the raw stories behind their most iconic shots, which they are sharing to inspire others pursuing a career in photography. Most importantly, this conference recognises photography as the art form it truly is, and as a keen photographer myself I’m proud to be a part of that celebration.’
The organiser, Aperture Australia (which shares the address of Central Coast colour lab and framing house, Created For Life), is anticipating up to 1000 attendees, with tickets prices ranging from $495 for attendance over the weekend through to $700 and $900 for VIP seats.
According to the event’s PR consultants, there will be no equipment show accompanying the presentations. Landscape photographer Glenn McKimmin, an associate and nephew of Ken Duncan, is the event manager.
