World-famous photographer coming to Queenstown snapper convention


He’s shot for Time and Rolling Stone magazines – now he’s coming to Queenstown.

World-renowned photographer Michael Grecco will be dishing out advice to New Zealand snappers at a Queenstown convention next month.

The New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography’s Infocus conference is being held at the Millennium Hotel from September 12-14.

Grecco, whose pictures have appeared in magazines such as Time, Forbes and Rolling Stone, is the key attraction.

“To get a photographer of Michael Grecco’s standing out to New Zealand is no small feat,” NZIPP president Craig Robertson says.

“It’ll be real honour and inspiration for those at the conference to hear from one of the world’s best.”

Entries for the Epson/NZIPP Iris Professional Photography Awards will also be judged and the winner announced at the event.

Punters can take a look at the exhibition of photos displayed during the weekend for free.
