We were pleased to photograph the ENA 2015 Seminar Series, Windsor Hotel, Melbourne as not only does the Windsor offer some amazing sandwiches at lunchtime, but one of our favourite corporate speakers, Ros Sims was on the bill. Rod Sims is the current ASIC Chairman and always has an interesting perspective on events. Not only that, but he is a very humorous gentleman and often likes to pepper a speech with a light hearted anecdote or two. I guess you need to keep a sense of humour with a job his!
We see plenty of musical acts and entertainment at the conferences and corporate functions we attend around Australia, and they vary in quality from the superb to the downright rubbish! Yes, we tell it like it is!
Before booking a band for your Melbourne event please do contact us to check whether we have seen them in action – we’ll give you an honest appraisal. Better still, we might even have some recent footage of them that we can show you.
One act we’re pleased to have heard on several occasions are the musicians Craig Francis Music who are professionals in their field and know how to entertain a crowd!
We look forward to seeing (and hearing) you guys again very soon!
The David Bowie is exhibition opened at ACMI in Melbourne two weeks ago and we have now had several clients hosting corporate functions there.
From what we saw of the exhibit really impressed us, with loads of handwritten lyrics, costumes and photos from his private collection.
We’re definitely going to be taking an afternoon off very soon to return and enjoy it without cameras around our necks!
EB is one of those conditions that affects relatively few people in Australia (a few thousand) and I’m thankful for that. Sadly though there are still many in our community who have to cope with it on a daily basis and the majority of those are kids. You can read up on EB here.
So, we were very glad to be able to donate our time and photographic skills to this worthy cause, which on the night raised over $300,000! Great going guys!
The Internoise group celebrated their 40th anniversary at their recent Melbourne conference at the MCEC and put on quite a party to celebrate the fact! We were excited to be there to photograph the plenary lectures, gala dinners, awards and general merriment.
Over 3 days, delegates from all over the world attended workshops, enjoyed the local sights, got up and close with some Australian wildlife, reaquainted themselves with colleagues and peers and of course, partied! The Welcome to Country opening ceremony with Aboriginal dancers and didgeridoo players was sensational and went down brilliantly with the international guests.
Amongst the fun and entertainment there was much swapping and sharing of accoustical information, with my favourite lecture delivering South Korean research into making electric cars audible to pedestrians for increased safety. It’s the future folks, so we should start thinking about these things!
The accompanying trade show was packed with the world’s top exhibitors in their field and I even got to glean some useful information for eliminating excessive noise at my daughter’s kindergarten!
With hundreds of photos delivered to the client, these are just a few from the event for a flavour of things.
We were delighted to be the official photographers at the annual ALC Forum held last week in Melbourne. Known for selecting impressive and iconic sporting venues wherever they are hosting an event, the world class MCG.
With the Cricket World Cup currently in play across cricket grounds in Australia and New Zealand, in between sessions delegates were able to watch the meticulous care that goes into preparing the best cricket field in Melbourne.
With a packed program of guest speakers, delegates were treated to a bevvy of high profile faces from the logistics industry and Australian federal politics including the ACCC’s Rod Sims, Jamie Briggs MP, and Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss MP.
The MCG once again proved itself as one of the best conference venues in Melbourne with it’s exceptional catering, great AV facilities, global reputation and naturally lit function rooms which are a joy to photograph in.
This is the view from the Member’s Dining Room at the MCG last night where we were pleased to be photographing the ALC Forum Annual Dinner.
The pitch is looking in great shape for the upcoming quarter final with Bangladesh!
Cricket aside, there was plenty of informative discussion and debate over the course of 2 days and all the delegates seemed really enthusiastic to be taking part which was great to see.
