The Palace Hotel
227 Argent Street, Broken Hill NSW 2880
Sunday 6th September 6:00pm 70.00 pp - 3 Course Meal with alternate drop + tea/coffee
APSCON has historically been a social event where APS members gather to rekindle old friendships and make new ones. It’s a time for delegates to enjoy and share their love of photography and to explore different regions. The dinner has always been a highlight of the event and considered a special occasion by all who attend.
This year the awards dinner will be a unique experience as we’ve booked an upstairs room at the iconic Palace Hotel for a night of fun and laughter.
The History of the Palace Hotel Broken Hill
The building was erected as a coffee palace in 1889 at a cost of £12, 190 pounds. The Temperance Movement (a group that believes in non-licensed venues for the community) commissioned the build; They had a vision of a place for fine dining and coffee. Setting it apart from the licensed hotels that were abundant in broken hill.
The architect was Alfred Dunn from Melbourne; he had successfully won a competition to design the hotel. The build was unprofitable as a coffee palace and ultimately became a licensed hotel in 1892.
Mario painted a copy of Botticelli's Venus on the ceiling; he offered £1000 for anyone who could match his painting in the blank area next to his painting.
An Indigenous artist from Port Augusta by the name of Gordon Waye came into the hotel. Mario asked him to paint a wall in the front bar, which Gordon painted in 8hrs. Over a period of years, Gordon painted all the other murals mostly in a landscape theme.
The only stipulation was that scenes contain a water feature so that the hotel would feel like an oasis in the outback. The blank area is still not painted on the ceiling of the foyer. All the hand stencilled wallpaper is Mario's work.
The Spiritual Home of Priscilla Queen of the Desert
The Palace Hotel Broken Hill was used as a stop-over for the characters in the 1994 Australian iconic movie, Priscilla Queen of the Desert.
Many favourite scenes from the movie were filmed in and around Broken Hill and throughout various locations within the Palace Hotel. You can put yourself right in the scene of the film and stay in the 'Priscilla Suite', the room where the characters of the movie stayed.
Details: Sunset and nibbles at The Line of Lode Miner’s Memorial. This will be casual opportunity to photograph the sunset over Broken Hill while socialising over light refreshments. This will be self drive activity.
The Line of Lode Miner’s Memorial is an icon for Broken Hill and the mining industry. It is also a symbolic and spiritual representation of the human tragedy of more than 800 deaths since mining commenced in Broken Hill in 1883. The Line of Lode is the ore body that bisects the town.

APS Annual Awards Dinner - Palace Hotel
Sunday 6th September 6:00pm 227 Argent Street Broken Hill NSW 2880 Includes: 3 Course Meal with alternate drop + tea/coffee
There were many highlights during APSCON 2012. Analysis of the surveys returned by delegates reveals that for most of them the two presentations by Robyn Beeche were certainly at the top of their lists of things they considered to be the best sessions. There is no doubt whatsoever that Robyn was a highlight. The high numbers of people that took opportunities to speak privately with her during the week and the percentage that scored both her sessions 10 out of 10 clearly demonstrate that. Robyn’s first presentation was about her fashion photography in 1980s London, whilst her second (very different) presentation was about her documentary photography in India, especially relating to the Holi festival. Robyn’s invitation to Brian Rope to put together a tour for a small group of members to visit India in early 2014 and stay at the ashram where she lives saw sixteen people rush to add their names to a list of interested persons.
Natasha Egan’s one-on-one personal portfolio critiques with a fortunate ten APSCONeers was certainly a highlight for those people. One of them described it as the best experience she had ever had at an APSCON - high praise indeed from someone who has attended many previous APSCONs.
Phil McFadden’s presentation, High Dynamic Range without “HDR”, also rated very highly, with many delegates overjoyed to hear a most instructive session. One survey respondent described the presentation as “well thought out, very instructional, well delivered, brilliant”. Raoul Slater, Margot Manchester and Gerard Saide also earned high praise for their presentations. The word “inspiring” was used to describe each of them more than once. Each of those presentations would have been a highlight for various delegates.
Another definite highlight was the first-time use of large screen LCD TVs to display numerous digital images programs throughout the week. The programs changed daily so there was always something new to see. Together with the well lit and presented print exhibitions they made up a feast of photography for viewing.
The panel discussion about the Society’s past was a highlight for the many who thoroughly enjoyed the reminisences, particularly by two of our Foundation Members, Graham Burstow and Bill Smit. Particularly for our members who have been part of APS for many years, the recognition given to Past Presidents, Foundation Members and Honorary Life members was greatly appreciated. Screening images from the 1st APS National and from the Society’s permanent Collection added to the recognition of our past.
The behind the scenes tour of the National Gallery of Australia’s photography collections area was a very special highlight for those who found themselves in very close proximity to original prints made by some famous photographers who they have long admired. It was something they never thought they would experience.
Of the outings that were offered the highlight for most was the trip to Strathnairn Homestead and gallery, where a special exhibition by members of the Canberra Photographic Society and entertainment by two singing groups was enjoyed. Many photographs were taken of the performers and a range of models, as well as of the numerous things to be found around the extensive property.
The Dance City dancers at the opening/welcome session was another highlight for many, whether it was the opportunity to photograph good dancers or simply to enjoy their performances.
For many of those attending their first ever APSCON, the highlight was simply being there and soaking it all up as they made friends and learned so much about what this Society is all about.
Of course, for the winner of the 50th anniversary participation prize and the winners of raffle prizes involving overseas photographic tours provided by the major sponsor, UDesign PhotoTours, their wins, no doubt, were also highlights.
And, of course, for others receiving their photographic skill or service honours and awards at the 50th anniversary Society dinner would have been a particular highlight. The grand venue, Gandel Hall at the National Gallery of Australia, and the fine food and beverages package just added to the occasion.
Finally, the quality handling of the audiovisuals for all presentations by the highly experienced pair of Brad King and Peter Edwards and the excellent organisation by the APSCON Committee is also worthy of the tag “highlight”.

APSCON was the APS's annual convention, alternating between the States and Territories with the last one being run in 2019.
APSCON provided a varied programme of exhibitions, lectures, workshops, tours and social events. A diverse range of top-quality photographers were always on the programme. The Societies' annual business meetings and annual dinners were also held at this time, at which APS and FIAP Honours for photographic skill and service to photography were presented as well as other awards for the current year.
Many members had made APSCON the basis of their annual holidays and attended every year without fail and many lifelong friendships were made at these events.

Compelling Storytelling Images Brisbane theatre and performance photographer Kris Anderson has a knack for creating rich storytelling images. A longtime performer and musician, Kris primarily photographs actor headshots, theatre advertising, and production images for theatre companies.
A Master of Photography with the AIPP, Kris’ illustrative work is instantly recognisable, tapping into dark, emotive themes of everyday life that resonate with everyone. He frequently explores narratives concerned with modern life, mental health, and the impact of technology on people and relationships. His illustrative compositions have earned Gold awards at state, national and international levels, and in 2017 he was recognised as the AIPP Australian Illustrative Photographer of the Year.
"As photographers we aspire to communicate our ideas clearly to a viewer, to draw them in and reward exploration. In this session Kris will discuss techniques you can use to visualise and plan your storytelling images, and some tools for evaluating your work in progress to ensure you capture and keep a viewer. To help illustrate these concepts, we'll deep dive into some of Kris' illustrative work, sharing some of his successes and failures along the path to effective communication".
How to put the right words with your Photography: Titles & Beyond
Lisa Langell is a full-time, award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in numerous prestigious publications including the cover of Outdoor Photographer magazine, plus numerous images in Arizona Highways, Ranger Rick, art galleries and more. She currently sits on the Board of Directors for the North American Nature Photography Association. She is also a proud ambassador for Tamron, FotoPro, and H&Y filters.
Whether it was working as a master floral designer, a licensed psychologist, university faculty, an international consultant in K-12 education, the Chief Business Development Officer of an education technology company, a researcher, a writer, or an artist - she enjoyed meeting each challenge.
Still, her strongest calling was photography-ever since childhood-when bird watching ignited her lifelong love of nature and the camera. In 2010, she turned her passion for photography into a business-and in 2015 she successfully transitioned to photography full-time and left the corporate and consulting world behind.
The journey with photography has definitely been Lisa’s favourite – she loves combining her diverse background and skills into her photographic art and instruction. Bringing joy to others brings joy to her! She thrives on creating innovative learning experiences and pushing photographic boundaries. She equally enjoys enriching, stimulating and expanding fellow photographers’ minds emotionally, creatively and intellectually.
Heather Prince is a passionate amateur photographer from Geelong and is proud to be President of Geelong Camera Club.
Photography has played a big part in Heather's life since receiving her first camera at 8 years old. Since then she has constantly had a camera nearby and, with the advent of digital photography and Photoshop, photography has become an all-consuming addiction.
Heather has explored most genres of photography in her journey but has a special interest in Still Life photography and Altered Reality image making. Her motto is borrowed from Dianne Arbus: “I never have taken a picture I’ve intended. They’re always better or worse.” According to Heather it is the learning journey that she enjoys most.
"Still Life is a paradox that has been practised in visual representation from the beginning of human existence when men painted objects on cave walls. The great painters of the Renaissance took Still Life to the pinnacle of rich and romantic painting and were followed by artists of every movement up to the present day. I want to look at Still Life from the viewpoint of a photographer. How does one reconcile ‘Still’ with ‘Life’? What does Still Life offer the photographer and the viewer? I will share some of my Still Life photographs from the last 10 years and talk about why I enjoy this genre of photography".

Gentleman of Leisure, Gypsetter, Photographer, Unemployed, Unemployable, and Loving it!
In a previous life, Yusuf Hashim worked for Shell, and was based in London, Rotterdam, and Jakarta. Upon returning to Malaysia in 1990, he was appointed Managing Director for Shell Chemicals in Malaysia, and then Retail Marketing Director for Shell Oil in Malaysia.
In 1999, at age 53, and at the peak of his 30 years career at Shell, Yusuf listened to his heart, and quit Shell, to become an unpaid photographer, and a spare driver for WorldExplorer.net, specialists in arranging worldwide trans-continental, motorcycle and 4x4 off-road expeditions.
It wasn’t a rash or impulsive decision. His parental obligations were done. The Financials were good. He had a Bucket List. He wanted to spend his children’s inheritance. He wanted to travel and shoot pictures. He wanted to write. He wanted to live life. And he wanted to do it before, in his own words, life leaves him.
Apart from sharing some of the two million photos he shot during his extraordinary trans-continental driving expeditions and the sailing and trekking photography workshops he has conducted in Antarctica, the Arctic, and in between, Yusuf will also share the thinking, which drove him to do what he has done. He will share the seven must-haves if you want to do the same.
Over the last 20 years, Yusuf has visited >130 countries, and driven a 4x4 go anywhere vehicle, across and around, almost every continent, every desert, and over almost every mountain range worldwide.
Yusuf has also been a part time lecturer in photography at Malaysia’s Open University. He writes articles for magazines, and has published six online print-on-demand coffee table books. He has also participated in photography exhibitions. Presently, he is in a fund-raising project in which 40 of his pictures will be printed on large canvas, and sold to raise half a million Ringgits for Cancer Research in Malaysia.
Yusuf’s other passions are trekking, motorcycling, and flying. He’s led several groups on trekking expeditions in the Himalayas and Patagonia. He does regular sailing-trekking photography workshops to Iceland, Greenland, Svalbard, Wrangle Island, the Falklands and Antarctica. Yusuf has a PPL (Private Pilot’s Licence) for planes, and at age 70, he got his wings for paramotoring, becoming one of the oldest Malaysians to qualify to fly paramotors.
"Come and join us, listening to Yusuf, as he shares anecdotes and photos from his Journeys from Pole to Pole, and in between".
