Wallace Community Gallery May 17th to 29th 2012
Lawrence is a retired farmer who is presently attending CPIT School of Art and Design, doing a Diploma in Photographic Imaging – Level 5.
He is passionate about his photography and is always striving to improve his knowledge and skills, and this course will enable him to reach his goal in obtaining the proper qualifications to work in the photographic industry, and to give weight to his envisioned future business.
Lawrence’s first camera was a Nikon SLR he purchased in 2007, and he has been taking images ever since. He is a current member of the PSNZ and is a committee member of the Te Aroha Camera Club.
As well as having successes in National competition, Lawrence has had work published in NZ Camera 2010 and 2011, as well as on the front page of the local Piako Post newspaper.
"I have been interested in Photography for about 13 years now. It all began when I received a bonus at work and decided to buy a decent camera with the money. My first purchase was an entry level 35mm film SLR Canon camera. Wanting to get full use of this camera, I decided to enrol into a course run by Don Edwards in Te Aroha. Progressing to a more advance course with him later, and a couple of night classes in Hamilton, I began to understand the principles and techniques of how to take much better images. In the meantime I joined the Te Aroha Camera Club, where we share ideas and encourage members to experiment with their photography. Over the years I purchase a digital G5 Canon, and then advance to a DSRL400 Canon camera. I have entered a couple of National competitions and have had successes. I hope you enjoy my Images."
