The inaugural Aperture Australia Conference, held in Sydney in April 2018, was an amazing event. Huge congratulations to Glenn McKimmin for undertaking this mammoth task. I personally loved it because I got to hear about the experiences of other great Australian photographers who I greatly admire.
Over 600 people attended this landmark event. Anyone who loves the art of photography – or who aspires to pursue photography as a career – should have been there.
But if you missed Aperture 2018, you should definitely make a point of attending Aperture 2019, wherever it is being held. (I believe it may be in Melbourne in 2019)
One of the main things I took away from Aperture 2018 was this: If you really want to pursue your dream of becoming a photographer, it’s not necessarily going to be easy. Your journey will require passion, commitment, and a great deal of time and energy. And you often need to be willing to put everything on the line to pull off a big project – or sometimes just to stay the course.
