This trip is inspired by the photography and art of Pete Rees.

Pete is a very well known painter and fine art photographer based on Waiheke. He has an active association with our club as a judge and made the opening keynote address for the 2017 Convention. He led the most popular field trip as part of the Convention and now here is your opportunity to experience this first hand.

We start with a talk by him at the Waiheke Community Theatre where Pete will present some of his work and talk about his approach to processing. Then we transfer to one of his favourite locations, Whakanewha beach for low tide and sunset. (Low tide is at 3.41 pm and sunset is around 5.00 pm).

There is a small charge of $40 for this field trip to cover the cost of hiring the theatre and bus for transfers. This does not include the cost of the ferry and participants need to make their own arrangements.

1.00 pm Depart on the 1.00pm ferry
1.40 pm Pick up at Matiatia and transfer to Waiheke Community Theatre
2.00 pm Pete’s presentation starts
3.00 pm Transfer to Whakanewha beach (eastern end)

Triptych; For the purpose of this Salon a triptych is a presentation made up of three (and only three) distinctly separated photographic images displayed on a common background. Additional Guidelines: The background should complement the presentation of the three images but must not become a significant “fourth image” in the message of the triptych’s three images. The only restriction on the arrangement of the triptych’s three images is that they must not meet or overlap. There is no requirement that the three images must be either the same size or the same shape. Added borders, drop shadows etc. are allowed. See also Successful images may be entered in the Nelson Camera Club Competition
