A picture is worth a thousand words. Today, maybe it is worth a billion pixels. A photo freezes the moment, locks it into our consciousness. The next commercial on TV dis-focuses us, to consume for happiness. Reality is binned, condemned to the cutting room floor with the caution that we might find it disturbing.
Tim Page is the subject of many documentaries, two films and the author of nine books. His archive contains over 750,000 photographs, taken in 85 countries over 40 years.
He no longer covers wars. He freelances from Brisbane and has taken up a position as Adjunct Professor of Photojournalism at Griffith University. He regularly exhibits his work and continues to proactively promote peace.

SIMON JAMES has had to withdraw from this seminar due to illness.
His spot on the bill will be taken by master photographer, and one of Australias top photodocumentary style wedding photographers, PAUL GRIGGS

Recharge your passion for photography. Simon James talks about putting time into doing personal projects. "Its wonderful that we all enjoy what we do, but sometimes you need to reconnect with the craft." Simon spends his down time shooting nudes on location. A wedding is 600 images in 6 hours. A nude, is a 6 hour hike through Mother Nature and 20 shots. "A wedding is 90 images in half a day on the computer. A nude is all night with music of my choice and one image." Re-ignite the passion for your photography..........
