Visions of Nature

Talking Macro mastery

If you would like to refine your macro photography technique with the help of one of New Zealand’s renown wildlife photographers make your way to the Te Aroha Camera Club next Monday.

Nature photographer Trevor Penfold will be the guest speaker at the Te Aroha Camera Club meeting on Monday, March 12, sharing his knowledge of close-up photography in the New Zealand wild.

You don’t need to be a member of the club (though joining is certainly encouraged), simply make your way to the Te Aroha Arts Centre that evening.

“The venue is 49 Rewi Street, Te Aroha so if you want an enjoyable evening out to see some great macro shots and learn a bit more about macro photography why not come along,” says Penfold.

“Entry is only a gold coin, where would you get a better deal then that for a great night out? Hope to see you there.”

RSVP to club secretary Dot Gregory on 7 887 27 21 or, the event starts at 7.30pm.

Penfold’s latest book, Visions of Nature (reviewed in D-Photo 43) will also be available at the event for $50, cash only.
