Tutorial: Intro Session, Pizza and Photo Sharing (Friday)

Date: Friday, 20th July 2012
Time: 4pm to 6:30pm
Location: Central Lecture Block (CLB) (Signage displayed in CLB Foyer)

Welcome back to another semester with the PhotoClub! This week’s tutorial comes in two parts. We’ll begin with an introductory session where you’ll get to meet everyone and find out what’s going to happen this semester. There are also some prizes and new t-shirts to hand out!

The second half of the tutorial will be a photo sharing session. Bring along some photos you shot over the break (either on a USB or your website/flickr/etc) and show them off. But remember, please choose only a couple of your best photos as this will allow more people to have a turn.

Like all photo sharing nights, we will also be having pizza. Note that if you are staying for pizza, you MUST RSVP by clicking “attending” on our event page (otherwise we might not order enough pizza!)


Open to UNSW PhotoClub members only. Please remember to bring along your membership cards for identification!
