Well, sort of a trade fair. As good as it's going to get in the current locked-down state of the world. You trade a gold coin to charity and the photographic people trade in their Sunday ( plus all the rest of the week to get things restocked and accounted for ...

The phrase " Standard Of The Industry " is wonderful. It has the sort of authority that is slowly slipping away from the rest of society. Time has eroded the power of the religious authority figure, the holder of civil power, the educator. A century of propaganda and counter-culture has made us doubt everything...

If you fancy a trip down south to talk photography with the AIPP people, it looks as though the 22nd and 23rd of February are the dates to aim for. They are calling it the South West Summer Sessions and organising it at Caves House, Yallingup.Those of you who have been there know it for a rather magnificent resort of the 20's and 30's associated with the Yallingup caves and beaches and boasting a pretty magnificent period decor. They are turning on a number of high-poewered speakers for the two days as well as trade displays and professional workshops.This is an eat, greet, listen, learn, schmooze, and develop Monday and Tuesday with David Dare Parker and Martine Perret. You'll be challenged by talks on photojournalism. business development, and creative thinking.They'll feed you well - all day at various times - thought their flyer does note that the prices do not include accommodation - you book that separately with Caves House or other hostelries in the area. There is always sleeping on the beach but the bugs can get a bit...

Let me rephrase that.Stan Davies frequently takes photographs whilst waterborne - he uses one of the most intriguing of the Nikon cameras to do this. During the course of these adventures he may become immersed. When he visits the shop he is dry - and dressed. All is well.Now, Mr. Davies will be visiting the shop to tell people about the Nikon 1 AW-1 camera system and the explain about his upcoming workshop.He'll be conducting the event over two days in the Margaret River region near the start of December. As it is to be on a weekend there will be an opportunity for a lot of people to travel to it. And it is to be somewhat unusual:Attendees will be supplied a Nikon 1 AW-1 waterpoof camera for their use during the event.It will be in and around water so attendees will need to bring their bathers - and i would suggest thongs as well.Attendees will need to bring their own SD card and a small tripod  - and to arrange their own overnight accommodation in the area.They'll meet...

My surprise is occasioned by discovering that I am to be a judge for a photo contest. I have just read the Google+ posting for Rob Masters' Photowalk through Cottesloe later in the month and find I am to be the one to assess the images afterwards. Photowalkers would be well advised to consider that I am a strict judge but I bribe easily. Hint: baked goods...
