We start with a great guest speaker: Chris Helliwell, an “almost local” award winning Nature photographer. His presentation will be very timely given our focus on the Waikanae Estuary this year (remember the exhibition will be at the Paraparaumu Library in August).

So come along and see his work, and pick a few tips to help you produce some great images for that exhibition.

You can see some images by Chris on Flickr at These is also an online article from the Christchurch Press about Chris and his winning Kotuku image.
