Have Point-and-Shoot, Will Travel

Blake Maybank has previously successfully presented to the Guild and we are fortunate to have him return. This program should appeal to almost everyone. Even those who have DSLR’s and all the gear will want to know what and how to use a smaller digital camera on occasion especially when traveling…

The title of his presentation is: “Have Point-and-Shoot, Will Travel”, a.k.a. “How I gave up my SLR and started relaxing” simply recounts how I made the switch from film to digital, and eventually settled on ease and simplicity, while still managing to create pleasing images that document my travels around the world. This is not a call to arms, but merely one person’s photographic journey. Different strokes.

About the presenter:
Blake used to work with Parks Canada in a variety of capacities, including Chief Park Naturalist in Gros Morne National Park. He has been an avid amateur (and occasionally professional) photographer since 1977, and made the switch from film to digital in 2002. He is currently self-employed in tourism, and is a member of the Maritime Camera Club as well as the Maritimes Nature Travel Club . Originally from the prairies, he has lived outside Halifax at White’s Lake since 1987.

Trust we will see you there…

Christmas Social, Wednesday, December 10

guild party poster

Hello everyone….December will soon be here and we want to make sure you save the evening of the 10th to come to the Museum to celebrate the Holiday Season with us. This is a NEW activity that takes the place of the usual dinner at the golf course.

We hope you will bring your camera(s) and participate in the photo opportunity we have planned, both as photographer and subject. We will have a PHOTO BOOTH (of sorts) and it promises to be very entertaining and rewarding.

The evening will also be filled with wonderful desserts and refreshments so have a light supper and join us for the ‘special’ goodies.

The evening begins at 7:30.

There will be party favours for everyone and a few door prizes as well.  (If you have something you would like to add to the door prizes please let us know and bring it along.)

There is NO CHARGE for this activity…. how great is that?  (smiles and giggles are expected)

Colin Campbell will be offering a half hour presentation and I will make a further announcement when I know what he has planned.

Please take the time to look at your December calendar…
Write PGNS Christmas Party on the December 10th spot and email Edie with you RSVP….
Planning is important with regards to food and drink, favors, etc. We really want to see as many of you as we can on this occasion. The evening has been planned with ‘fun and celebration’ in mind!!!!

Thanks, see you on the 10th….with bells on (optional) !!!
