Report: Terry Lane – Life and Times of a digital imaging reviewer, ‘someone has to do it’

Wednesday 13th June 2012 saw a special night at Waverley Camera Club, a presentation by the renowned radio broadcaster, newspaper columnist and well known contributor to the AGE’s Green Guide, Terry Lane. Terry’s 40 minute talk which is entitled ‘Life and Times of a digital imaging reviewer, someone has to do it’ went down very well to a packed Craft Room at City of Monash’s Community Hall in Mount Waverley. Terry’s knowledge of the cutting edge in cameras fascinated members and guests alike and Terry happily answered many questions afterwards. It was a huge pleasure to see that Terry had enough time to stay behind to converse with the members after his talk. Waverley Camera Club would like to thank Terry Lane for giving up his valuable personal time for the benefit of the club members.

Also on display was an exhibition of prints by Waverley Camera Club’s special member, John Friend who is in his ninties. John’s exhibition was filled with just stunning vibrant images that he had taken over his many years as a press photographer. John has worked as a press photographer extensively in Europe, and in Australia he spent years with the now folded Argus Newspaper (which most would not have heard of) and later on 22 years at the ABC Gordon street studios as a Senior Cameraman and later as a Lighting and Technical Director. Many of Johns images are registered and held with the State Library Latrobe Picture Collection and he has also exhibited at the Monash Gallery of Art.

Special thanks must go to the club President, Ian Hansen (pictured below) for organising the entire evening which was a great success.
