July 2022 : Adrian Whear : Bangladesh

A Melbourne street photographer.  Adrian travelled to Bangladesh for two weeks in 2019.
He documented his travel with thought provoking, artistic storytelling images which made an absolute stunning presentation.
His visits to some very interesting places and experiences,  included the Port of Dhaka with the manual unloading of coal from ships by both men and women in baskets on their heads, the smoky and hot environment of foundries, the Cox Bazaar with its fishermen, chillies and rice drying methods,
brick making and the dangerous stone quarries. Train travel in Bangladesh is really an experience his images showed people clambering onto the roofs and leaping from train to train, crazy!!
Thanks Adrian, a brilliant presentation.

Zoom : Tuesday 23 November 2021

Thanks for a great evening Kris and the interesting discussion that came after.

One of our favourite pursuits is to create unique illustrative imagery to tell a story or convey a feeling – something that is normally challenging in a static image.
If you can capture someone’s story or find a way to express their feelings and communicate them clearly, that’s a pretty good outcome.

What a shame this was disappointing to members, not very inspiring, it was just a travelogue. However, one member enjoyed the photos and descriptions, especially on Myanmar (Burma). The countries travelled were Myanmar, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

2021 June: Adrian Whear, Street Photography

“I am so pleased that the Norths PS members enjoyed the presentation. 
My goal is really not to present my work per se, but mostly to use my images to highlight the points I am trying to get across.
Hopefully getting more people interested in street photography can only be a good thing”.

There was no doubt we were all inspired by Adrian’s presentation.
Adrian is a fantastic talented street and travel photographer and has certainly made a name for himself.
He has an amazing outlook and thorough process behind how he does what he does and why he does it.
It was an excellent evening to hear how he goes about his craft.
He has been to some amazing places in his travels around the world and has this amazing ability to tell a story in his imagery.

2021 May: Nick Melidonis, Lightroom – An introduction to develop tools.

A brilliant evening with the master of Lightroom. Nick shares his passion for photography and teaching in a relaxed and easy style. His knowledge of the creative process and his ability to communicate and inspire, show us the power of this program.

Nick showed how to do rapid and effective adjustments to photos using Lightroom.  He also detailed a number of functions which are not obvious but very powerful such as combining photos to make panoramas and high dynamic range photos.  Clearly, he is a master at Lightroom. 

That presentation was absolutely fantastic for a relatively new Lr user – I have learnt about 100 times more than I knew. Wish you would write a book and put all this helpful knowledge in step-by-step. So well and gradually explained. Thank you, thank you, thank you Nick!!

2021 Feb: Welcome back and a great start with Malcolm Fackender

Tue 09/02 Zoom


it’s February, here we go again for an action packed year, we are off and running. We are all looking for a much better year ahead with things starting to come back to a new sort of reality. In some ways, it’s been a great reset with lots of people given the opportunity to re-evaluate what’s going on in their lives. I hope we are all looking up and moving forward. If we can get through this, we can get through anything!

What a great start with Malcolm Fackender, who delivered an amazing presentation and shared stunning images along the way accompanied with the most interesting stories. We were all inspired and can’t wait to get back to travelling.

Malcolm Fackender has led 68 photographic tours around the world over the past 15 years,
visiting and photographing 19 countries with small groups of passionate photographers. 
Whilst it might sound like a dream job to many, it’s one which involves a substantial amount of work behind the scenes.  In an unprecedented time where COVID is preventing international travel, we had the opportunity to sit back in the comfort and safety of our home whilst Malcolm took us on a photographic journey of his travels.

Thank you for the wonderful presentation by Malcolm Fackender.
Malcolm’s passion for photography and stunning images combined with his extensive local knowledge of many exotic photographic locations around the world provide our members with one of the best
presentations seen at North’s  … Les

Fabulous travel photos. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing them…Robbie

I enjoyed Malcolm Fackender last night; would love to do some of his trips… Erith


2020 October:Mieke Boynton, specialist landscape and aerial

I’m a specialist landscape photographer from the beautiful Alpine Valleys of North-East Victoria (Australia).
I love being alone in Nature and photographing its stunning beauty. When I go out into the landscape, I try to clear my head of all the clutter and simply “listen.” I try to immerse myself in the moment and be guided by the sounds and atmosphere of that particular place. When I process my photos, I’m very careful about honouring the authentic reality of that moment.

Feedback: Mieke Boynton’s presentation was excellent last night. I have heard her talk before and each time she offers something new.
