Bunya Mountains photo workshop a great success

We had twenty-five mad keen photographers turn up for our three day workshop at the Bunya Mountains recently. Sue Unwin and her team at the Bunya Conference Centre spoiled us with great hospitality and food. The weather was perfect and the photographers made good use of the fascinating photo opportunities at our doorstep.

I’m planning another workshop at the Bunyas later in the year.

The Toowoomba based participants have formed an informal group and plan to get together and swap stories, images and tips on the first Sunday of the month. We had our first get together at Toowoomba’s Japanese Gardens on Sunday.
