When to get there

We have booked the camp from, 10:00am Monday-10:00am Wednesday.

About the camp

The Tanybryn campsite currently contains 2 buildings, a “rec” room, with pool table, table tennis table, a fireplace, 2 stoves, gas electric and a refrigerator, some couches and chairs, the couches convert to beds, and last but not least a fireplace. Obviously there is electricity, however, there is NO mobile phone reception.

The second building is the “dorm”. This is really 4 rooms with 3 bunk beds in each. Which means the camp sleeps 24 in total, of course people sometimes sleep on floors and as I said some room is available on the floor and couches in the “rec” room. Each room in the dorm block has an on-suite bathroom and toilet.

About Tanybryn & The Otways

Tanybryn is situated in the Otways a sub tropical area of Victoria, this area has HIGH levels of RAINFALL compared to the rest of the state ALL year round. It WILL rain when we are there, at least once per day, probably more. The frequency and quantity of the rain will be the unknown. So bring wet weather gear, as well as solid shoes.

A feature of the area is the waterfalls. Therefore there will be ample opportunity to photograph in these locations. If you have a particular waterfall or feature of the area you wish to photograph, let us know we can all head out together and check it out.

Open Day, Gallery Crawl & Canberra Trip

2008-08-18 — posted by at 08:49

PIC’s Annual Open Day

This Sunday is Open day at PIC photographic imaging college. Like many of the other tertiary institutions around town, we have a day where the school is open to allow potential visitors to wander through and ask questions. We also like to add to the experience for the visitors by having a few students around working in the studios and digital darkroom etc. If you are interested we are open from 12:00 to 4:00 and you can process film, scan, work in the studios or with photoshop. We ask however to check with a staff memeber such as Mick or one of the other teachers on staff first. There is also a booking sheet in the staff room, again see a member of the teaching staff to confirm.

Gallery Crawl

Next Monday the staff are going to Bendigo for the day to see this exhibition ‘A Moment In Time’ Portraits from the 1990’s by Francis Reiss. Francis, is photojournalist and has photographed many places around the world. We hope to get him to come to pic soon to talk to you about his work and life.

So if you want to tag along, we are catching the train from Southern Cross station to Bendigo, the staff are meeting at the station at 7:30, to catch the 7:48 to Bendigo. We will spend a few hours in the gallery and then have luch, possibly shoot around Bendigo for a few hours then head home.

Canberra Trip

The Canberra Trip is going ahead. There will be a meeting this Thursday at PIC, probably around lunchtime. Places will be limited, so the first 10 students with a $50.00 will be going. Gayle and I are going to drive a small bus up. We will be staying at the YHA in Canberra, the dates will the 4th of September to the 8th of September. All accommodation food and transport provided. Every day we will visit several exhibitions. And spend some time shooting in and around Canberra.
