On the October Long Weekend (5th, 6th and 7th of October 2013) I opened the PSQ Photography Convention in Mackay as Keynote Speaker, as well as presenting a macro workshop the following day. The event was hosted by the Mackay Camera Group and I can honestly say it was the best-run PSQ Convention I have ever attended. The caliber and variety of the other speakers and workshops was exceptional, the venue and meals served couldn’t be faulted, staff were very helpful and the event ran smoothly and efficiently. I have heard feedback from many that were in attendance at the convention and it was a universal ‘thumbs-up’ from all. I would personally like to thank all of those involved, on a voluntary basis I might add, for putting together such a wonderful event.
I also presented a half day photography workshop the day after after the convention ended, to a group of eleven very enthusiastic participants, at the Mackay Botanic Gardens. Many questions were answered and problems solved, as well as plenty of tips and techniques given on how to take better photos. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, as the photo shows!
