Photography competition to show Pacific Coast at its best

THE Legendary Pacific Coast will be opened to the world through a photographic competition conducted with internationally acclaimed photographer Leo Meier.

TLPC executive officer Belinda Novicky said the competition continues until June 17.

"Leo Meier has generously donated a day-long customised photography workshop for the winner and a friend," she said.

"We are very proud and delighted to have a photographer of this quality and international renown living and working in our region and generously offering his services."

The prize valued at $3500 includes the customised workshop for two and accommodation and breakfasts for two at the Heritage Guest House in South West Rocks.

"We encourage aspiring photographers to enter this competition for the opportunity to learn from one of the best," Ms Novicky said.

"We are also looking forward to viewing so many highlights of The Legendary Pacific Coast through the entrant's eyes.

"Leo has photographed over 30 books, many of which necessitated epic journeys into some of the world's most remote regions.

"In addition he has contributed to many worldwide books and publications such as GEO, BBC, Focus and National Geographic."

Leo Meier's expertise spans more than 30 years and covers photography, printing, graphic arts, design, digital imaging and publishing.

He has also designed and built a large array of unique and specialised equipment, culminating in the production of a world-first large format panorama camera.
