The workshop I held at Hobart, in the Australian region of Tasmania, was more than an out-of-town trip: I could there get in touch with so many colleagues living in the other side of the world. After more than a whole day of travel (and coming straight from a marriage in France) I received a wonderful welcome, and I could quickly get in the Australian “mood” thanks to the splendid organising skills of AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photograpy): they invited me as a mentor to the “AIPP Event”, the yearly event dedicated to professional photography.
As for the previous years, the event programme included several talks of Australian and American professionals (amongst which great names as Abraham Joffe, Jennifer B. Hudson, Annie Zanazanian, etc.) analysing different areas of photography, from naturalistic to reportage, art photography, sport… And for the first time as an “exception” an European photographer, myself. While giving my talk in the impressive Room 1 of the awesome Grand Chancellor, overlooking Hobart Harbour and the “Constitution Dock”, I could sense a great curiosity coming from the audience: I explained my relationship with wedding photography and gave a few observations and tips already discussed in previous events, trying to communicate and transmit the italian point of view on what I consider one of the most captivating jobs of the world.
