DSLRUsers Exhibition Kickoff (20/03/2010 -> 11/04/2010)

Postby biggerry on Sun Mar 21, 2010 2:26 pm

Thanks to all that turned up last night (20/03/2010) to open the exhibition, it was great to see a good turn out and people enjoying themselves surrounded by some great images!

The offical results of the tasmanian style election process for the best image are as follows:

1) David Viviers - $200 voucher @ zimprints
2) Jon Dawes & Narelle Power - (Mongrel Creek Wine) Jon you can pick up your bottle when you pick your canvas up, Narelle I will post yours with the canvas!
3) Andrew Trevor Jones

and Craig Rohse with an hourable mention, which successfully confused me and everyone else by the looks of it :wink:

The exhibition runs for a few weeks (up to the 11th April) you can drop in there and look at at anytime when the shop is open, check zimprints.com.au for times.

510 King Street
Newtown, Sydney NSW
Zimprints (http://www.zimprints.com.au/)

It is amazing how images look on canvas, some which I picked to not be crash hot actually look great on the big size and on canvas, so I encourage people who are thinking about do this style of printing to drop in and have a look, check out the images in the (DSLRUsers Exhibition Online Gallery!)and you can see the end result on the wall!

There has already been some sales interest from people dropping into the shop on Saturday, that was with only half the images hanging! I hope there will be some sales, which leads me to the next part, sales.

The general consenus is to have standard price across the range, this means people can come in and know they can have any one of those shots for a fixed price, rather then trying to look at each individual tag and determine whether its a goer for them. The price that was deemed reasonable was $275. I will PM people with images to confirm they are happy with this, if you have objection to this or do not want yours for sale, thats fine just let me know. If an image sells and is processed through the shop it attracts GST, this is the only cost that Callan charges. The image will be reprinted and the difference in the print price and sale price (minus GST) will be given to the photographer.

If you would liek to pickup you image early, that is fine, but I would liek to see them there as a collective until the end. The final weekend is the 11/04/2010, can we ensure those picking up their shots can do so on this weekend, or before hand. That weekend I will also endeavour to package and post those which are heading interstate.

Again, thanks to those who turned up and those with images, it was fun!

Also thanks to my partner Sarah for organising and making food etc... :cheers:

have I forgotten anything?

Is there any reason Callan can't sell the print that is already done? i.e. no need to do a reprint.

If it doesn't sell, I'm happy to take it home. If it does sell, I have no huge desire to hang it at home, so no reprint needed for me.

Gerry, I think you missed one wall. From memory, Dviv's Strelitzia, East Timorese man & St Paul's Cathedral Dome

Oh and I am of similar mind to Andrew.

Holy Crap - thank you so much !!!! I was really worried how the print would turn out .. well, not how the PRINT would turn out, but how my photo would turn out :? .. I'm guessing mine may have been one that looked better small, and may have lost something in the eyes when it was blown up - but I'm so chuffed !!! Thank you thank you thank you, and I do like wine :) :)

And thanks to you Gerry, and to you Callan, for all of your hard work, and for putting on what looks like was a BRILLIANT evening. I wish that we could have been there, but the photos nearly make me feel like we were :) The prints look absolutely amazing - I'll have to get some more done :)

Wow, they look fantastic!!! Well done everyone!

I do have to ask though, what does the little "Lungs of the Land" sign say in the forest one? I can't really read any more.....

To add to Gregs comment, more specifically its a track in the Upper Florentine (in Tasmania) very close to a logging coupe and also a main logging track that was installed weeks earlier. It was/is part of the logging protests going on in that area..
