PHOTOS: Budding photographers get creative

BRAD LOWE loves all things tech related and sharing his passion.

Last week, the Good Guys Pialba franchisee gave about 15 budding photographers from disability care group Choice, Passion and Life a shot to be more creative.

Brad had organised camera company Canon to lend about ten cameras for the group to use at Urangan.

Happy photographer Joanne Grounds said taking photos was a good way to make her feel happy and the snappy enthusiasm was reflected by James Hamilton.

James said he had taken shots of the "beautiful scenery" which included water, low shots of rocks and high shots of the pier. But the best ones were taken at night.

Canon account manager Justine Townsend said sparklers had been arranged for the clients to shoot in the dark.

"...We're going to do some writing with light... you can light a sparkler and write your name," she said.

The night time activity was a first for the group.

CPL photography program leader Karlie Holloway said it was "very special".
