The 2017 Ipswich Enviroplan Photographic Competition is on again this year.
The Ipswich Enviroplan Photographic Competition is free and open to the public. The competition is run to encourage photographers and nature lovers to get out and explore all that the Ipswich region has to offer.
At this stage, this year’s competition is still being finalised and details will be available in the not too distant future. I can say though, it will be somewhat similar to other years but with a few added features.
Last year, James Doyle Photography ran a number of free nature photography workshops leading up to the 2016 competition.
This year, James Doyle Photography will be running nature photography workshops again but they will be more field oriented. That is, we will meetup at a location, out in the field and have a brief talk about some techniques etc., then we will head off and find subjects to photograph. We’ve changed to this format to give participants a more real world experience. Also, this year we will be running a basic “Star-trail” workshop, for those that would like to capture the night sky.
At this stage I’m looking at running about six workshops over a period of about a month, each workshop will have a different location where possible and hopefully different subjects for you to try your hand at. The workshops will be about 4 hours duration with morning or afternoon tea being provided.
These workshops will be great if you need to brush up on some techniques or you’re just needing some inspiration. Beginners are welcome or if you are more experienced and just want to explore a new location this is an opportunity to get out with fellow photographers.
So, stay tuned for updates about the 2017 Ipswich Enviroplan Photographic Competition and the nature photography workshops I’ll be running this year. As soon as things are finalised they will be posted on the James Doyle Photography and Ipswich Council’s website and also through social media platforms.
Even if you’re not a nature photographer, I encourage you to head out to Ipswich and discover what the region has to offer. Explore it’s natural places and just enjoy some time with nature.
The Ipswich area has some wonderful environmental spaces for people to explore and photograph and I encourage all of you to venture out to have an adventure with nature and make some photos.
Good luck with your adventures and may your viewfinder be filled with wonderful sights of nature.
