Gordon Bentzen with his beautiful image of a Blue-winged Kookaburra won the Colour Print section. Kristie White won the mono PI with “Wash Day” a shot of her cute nephew in the tub. This delightful image was also awarded Photo of the Month by our judge Margaret O’ Grady. Margaret O’Grady judged our images online and provided us with written feedback on each photo. We had our usual Smart Workflows presentation and a slideshow of photos from our previous Location Shoot at Centenary Lakes.

Richard Speer who was a newspaper photographer during his working life gave us an enlightening talk on his experiences of that time. Four photos to be entered in the APSCON display were judged by our members from all Photos of the Month winning shots. Australia Zoo was our destination for this month’s Location Shoot It was a beautiful, sunny, winters day with a temperature of 26 degrees – a perfect day for taking photographs of the resident fauna. Some outstanding shots were taken during the day.

The Bribie Island Photography Club meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 7 pm in the Boardroom at the back of the Art’s Centre on Sunderland Drive. New members are always welcome. The first two meetings are free. If you wish to come along ring Gordon at 3408 2649 or Gail at 3408 9850.

The theme for the month was “Nature” and Richard Speer’s “Thanks Mum” a charming shot of a Black Swan feeding its cygnets was the winner. Vince Bowser took out the Mono Print section with a scenic view of Queenstown in NZ. “Get me an Umbrella” a delightful shot of a Crested Pigeon in the rain by John Cupper took out the Colour PI category.

A highly successful sales and leadership career working in a number of different and very competitive industries. Engaging with decision makers at all levels in business and government. Three decades employed by corporations, SME businesses in senior roles and almost twelve years operating as a freelance contractor has equipped me well for all aspects of business. Whether leading and mentoring sales teams, or in a direct sales role I enjoy the challenge to meet and exceed expectations. Making a real and tangible difference in either a team environment or as an individual is an important personal goal I have consistently achieved throughout my career. In all of my business and personal dealings over the years there is one issue that stands out above all others - communication. Excellent communication skills creates trust, helps with mutually beneficial outcomes and above all cements long lasting positive relationships. I strive everyday to communicate effectively with the people I encounter.
