Night at the Museum

Well, a night with Nikon at the Museum of Tropical Queensland. Interesting evening with a talk by pro commercial photographer Michael Cranfield. Great work by Garricks Camera House and Nikon for organising the evening and tomorrow's event. Garricks are actually quite awesome - such a helpful team. I would seriously rather pay more for a local service and to support them, but these guys always hit the right price as well.

This evening Michael told us about his career and some good advice on building a successful photography business. Nikon showcased their camera and lens range and we got to play with them afterwards, including some astrophotography and the ridiculous monster Nikon 400mm f2.8 which will set you back about $13k and I could barely hold for more than a few minutes (pic below).

Some pics below. Tomorrow morning is an early start at 7am for another talk and a walk along the Strand to capture the Strand Ephemera.
