Presidents Report

MARCH 2012

We had our first face to face board meeting of the year, as well as our Policy and Planning meeting in Wellington recently. At the meetings we have concluded that it is our aim this year to return to the base level of the organisation and to reinvigorate the smaller regions, as well as stimulate the larger ones. It is also our aim to nurture the family that we represent and give the community at large a brand that is truly respected and professional. An increased membership is a key to our future success. The growth of sub regions is one of the keys to this - especially in areas where distance is a factor for members to be able to regularly attend regional meetings. This is being developed by Central Districts, as well as in the Otago/Southland region. A positive result is already evident by increased membership in both of these two regions. If you live in one of these regions and earn an income from photography, then contact us and become actively involved. Increased communication with Tertiary Photographic Educational providers is another initiative that we strongly believe in. Students are the future of our industry, as well as our institute. I have already booked myself in to give presentations to students at Massey University in Wellington, and UCOL in Palmerston North. As well as presentations to the industry in Wellington, Havlock North, Palmerston North, and New Plymouth. I will continue with this membership drive throughout the year, so if you are interested in hosting one of these presentations let me know and I will book something in for you. For the first time in many years we are ready by March to start advertising our conference programme for this year’s Infocus event in Christchurch, with all the speakers already signed and sealed. We have a fantastic line up which includes: Marcus Bell, Peter Coulson, Peter Eastway, Steve Saporito, Isaac & Amber de Reus, Nicola Inglis, and Esther Bunning. Details of their profiles, as well as what they will be presenting, will be published in Pro Report and on the NZIPP website over the coming months. We have also lined up several other international speakers presenting outside of the Infocus conference event. With Jerry Ghionis presenting during April in both Auckland and Christchurch, followed by National Geographic great Joe McNally, who will be offering a one-day workshop, a four-hour seminar, and a key note speaker spot in Auckland in May. Special rates for all of these events will be offered to our members and registration details will be released shortly. Watch this space! Cheers,

Mike Langford Hon F NZIPP, FNZIPP, Hon F AIPP, MAIPP NZIPP President

Commercial Directors Report

In my inbox this week landed an email from the support office of a client. It came from a purchasing officer, not one of the people that actually engages me to shoot work for them. It was a fairly standard vendor records request, but included some clauses that essentially amounted to a rights grab by the client. Many organisations, including corporates and government agencies, will have standard supplier terms & conditions. If you are presented with these documents, I suggest you read and fully understand the implications of signing them. In this case, I took exception to the clause that said “All Intellectual Property arising from the provision of Services (“New IP”) is owned by the <client name> and the Supplier shall co-operate with the <client name> (including by signing documents) to help the <client name> protect its rights in the New IP.” In plain English, they own the copyright of all the work you create while engaged by them. My response is below, I have replaced details that would identify the sender in chevrons, <>. They have replied that it will be forwarded to the procurement manager, higher up in the organisations hierarchy. I will keep you posted of the final outcome. But in the interim I WILL NOT be signing it without written confirmation that they accept that I retain all IP, and they are receiving a licence to use rather than the copyright of the images I create. More often than not these types of documents seek to overrule any terms & conditions you use e.g. in this case “These terms and conditions supersede any contrary provisions in the Supplier’s terms and conditions of supply including those terms that the Supplier normally uses.” As a side note, frequently I have seen similar rights grabs in three other areas a) competitions which try to claim the copyright of work submitted (especially architecture and hairdressing competitions) b) concert promoters who let photographers shoot gigs & c) publishers of magazines who already offer some of the lowest rates in the industry. If you are ever presented with any contracts from clients, make sure you read and understand them fully before signing. You can’t close the stable door after the horse has bolted.

Linton Photography reply to the Procurement Manager....... Hi <procurement persons name> Have received today the standard form <client name> T&C’s for Supply of Services. In general the clauses seem quite normal and reasonable. We do however have a major issue with section <section number> concerning intellectual property. The form supplied states that the <client name> owns all intellectual property arising from provision of services. The knowledge, style, creativity and skill set of an individual photographer develops and evolves over ones career. Successful outcomes on services that involve the creation of new work are as a result of a culmination many years of experience (over 20 years in my case). It is essential as creatives, that we retain all copyright for all work created regardless of who the client is. The <client name>, like every client, has differing needs. Each project will have specific purposes and budgets for which images are required. We licence use of the images we create to the client for the purposes specified and agreed in the brief/purchase order. It’s a win/win situation. The client gets it’s required use of our images and we get remunerated for these uses at an mutually agreed fee. If we did not own the copyright, our creative work could be exploited without our consent or knowledge. This could affect our reputation, our business viability and could in fact prevent us from even being able create new work without infringing someone else’s copyright. There is a well known case a New Zealand photographer with a specific shooting style who naively let a client own copyright in the work created. The client then aggressively protected what was now “their” copyright and forced the photographer to stop shooting in the same manner. To this day that photographer cannot create or sell new works that use that style, even though they created it! Attached for your records both our standard terms and conditions and licence documents. These are the industry standard forms and were in fact jointly created by the two industry bodies that represent professional photographers (both of which we are members of). I would suggest that clause <clause number> of the <client name> document does partly address the case of you engaging professional photographers (or any other creative professional for that matter), that is that the new IP incorporates or requires pre-exisiting IP. As photography is evolutionary, the copyright in the new IP however must also remain with the photographer, with the <client name> receiving a licence that covers uses for the required purposes. Can you please reply in the affirmative, and if so we will happily return signed documentation. Please feel free to get in touch if you wish to discuss any further. Regards, Richard Linton Director Linton Photography Limited

Wedding Directors Report

The girl who did my makeup on Saturday (it was my sister’s wedding and I got to sit in the hair and makeup chair instead of photographing it!) shared a really great little piece of wisdom...she said if you are the best person in the room (at whatever it is you do) then you are in the wrong room. I had to have a think about that for a bit but I’ve decided I really like it. It’s not about thinking you’re the shiz, it’s about not resting on your laurels...we need to seek out people who know more than us if we’re going to grow. Someone told me once…and I have no idea if it’s actually true but it’s a great story so just go with it… apparently there is no ‘hard wired’ difference between the small goldfish in the pet shop and the huge ones people have in their ponds…the difference in size is entirely due to the size of the space they’re in. So there’s a challenge…grow your fish tank a bit. And there are some pretty awesome opportunities coming up for photographers who want to get in a bigger fish tank with people who are better than they are (to mangle a metaphor entirely). In less than a month the long anticipated Continuing Professional Development program kicks in…underpinned by a mentoring programme and a much increased range of professional development opportunities. In the next 12 months you could get in a room with Jerry Ghionis and Joe McNally (at separate events coming soon), plus a host of speakers at Infocus 2012…and those are just the ones we can tell you about! As well as that you’ve got amazing stuff happening in your region (or a region near you), Creative Live and a whole bunch of online offerings. There’s no excuse for sitting there thinking you are the shiz in your own little fish tank!

Honours Council Report

MARCH 2012

Iris Awards 2012 - More Opportunities Than Ever The only constant is change, and in our efforts to not only listen to feedback from NZIPP members but also to grow interest in the Iris Awards and keep up with the way the world is moving, change is definite for 2012. But fret not – we don’t make our decisions lightly, and all our changes are approved by the board, usually after lengthy discussion, so you can be sure that the direction Honours is heading is in line with where the Board is taking us all. So, what does all that mean for you? You’ve no doubt heard of our plans to introduce the Fusion category at this years Iris Awards – after the success in last year’s APPA Awards in Australia, this is an exciting category that will both inspire and challenge, and adding this to our repertoire will grow the NZIPP in new ways. We also felt that splitting the Portrait category in 2011 was a success, albeit something that can be improved on for 2012. In line with this we are going to split the Wedding category into Wedding Creative and Wedding Classic. Just like the Portrait categories of the same names, Wedding Creative will be for no-holds-barred post production wizardry, should you so wish, while the purists can revel in the Wedding Classic category, where post will be limited to minor darkroom-techniques that “don’t materially affect the authenticity of the original image”. There are two other major changes – Photojournalism/Editorial is to become Photojournalism, and the Commercial category becomes un-commissioned. These two changes reflect the Honours Council’s commitment to encouraging participation in the awards rather than hindering it. The Commercial category has, of late, been underwhelming in the number of prints entered, despite the fact that a large proportion of NZIPP members will shoot one or more commercial shoots in a year. With the relaxing of the entry criteria, members will be encouraged to enter images that would fit a commercial brief, but can be self-commissioned. After hours of deliberation by Honours about where to put the Editorial genre, it was a suggestion from outside Honours that made the most sense – there wasn’t a need to retain it. Like the Commercial category, entry numbers have been low, and joined to the Photojournalism category it meant that the latter had to fall under the same entry criteria, being that it must have been commissioned and intended for use in the media. Honours, again encouraging participation, felt that Photojournalism as a style of photography was being hamstrung by those entry criteria. It also meant that editorial images, which could be directed by the photographer, were being judged alongside photo journalistic images, the purest form of which were spontaneous moments NOT directed by the photographer. Looking at recent editorial entries, there will still be a place for editorial images within the framework of the Iris Awards – some would suit the Commercial category, especially now with no need for the work to be commissioned in that category, while others would fit well into Travel or Portrait Classic.

And that leaves us with a ‘purified’ Photojournalism category, which will concentrate on the style that is photojournalism, while at the same time covering multiple genres within its description, including news, travel, documentary, weddings etc. All the details of each category’s description will be available when we release this year’s Call for Entries, but rest assured that the addition of new categories, and the broader entry criteria across all categories as a whole means there are more opportunities than ever before for you to enter the Awards. In fact, with a limit of 10 entries per member, there will actually be more opportunities than you need for you to enter your own style across several categories. We have a lot of work to do before September, so watch this space for more updates and explanations as the year progresses. As always your responses and comments are welcome: k.davis@ucol.ac.nz

Nowhere in New Zealand is changing and developing as fast as post-earthquake Christchurch, and visiting the country’s second largest city as it’s being rebuilt and reborn is both interesting and inspiring. A short drive from Christchurch’s dynamic re-emergence, Banks Peninsula conceals hidden bays and beaches – a backdrop for kayaking and wildlife cruises with a sunset return to the attractions of Akaroa. To the north are the vineyards of the Waipara Valley and the family-holiday ambience of Hanmer Springs. Westwards, the well-ordered farms of the Canterbury Plains morph quickly into the rough-and-tumble wilderness of the Southern Alps. Canterbury summertime attractions include tramping along the braided rivers and alpine valleys around Arthur’s Pass and mountain biking around the turquoise lakes of the Mackenzie Country. During winter, the attention switches to the mountains, with skiing at Mt Hutt. Throughout the seasons, Aoraki/Mt Cook, the country’s tallest peak, stands sentinel over this diverse region.

CPD Update

MARCH 2012

CPD Update Over the last few years the NZIPP has recognised the need to improve NZIPP member qualifications beyond a simple “Qualified Member” status. As a result the NZIPP Board is about to implement a full Professional Development & Accreditation Program where members’ photographic & professional standards are reviewed & measured on a regular basis. This we believe will provide credibility both within the NZIPP membership & the buying public. The 1st of April 2012 will mark the launch of the new NZIPP CPD programme for Qualified members, in line with the start of the new financial year. This month in Pro Report we will outline the requirements for achieving Accredited status with the NZIPP, & in next months Pro Report we will provide an overview of the new CPD IT functions in the NZIPP membership system which will assist in the management of the CPD Programme. Annually members are set photographic standards & educational targets to achieve NZIPP Accreditation in a given year. These standards & targets have been designed to be achievable for members both in terms of time & costs – for example a member can earn a large portion of their Education points annually by attending Infocus, or most of the regional meetings. Likewise entering prints into the Iris Awards will count towards photographic standards. In addition a component of “self administrated” development has been included, which covers the reading of photography magazines or belonging to online forums. Initially the NZIPP have set an annual CPD Education Requirement of 100 points, & CPD Photographic Standards of 10 Iris Award professional standards earned over a 4 year period. Or alternatively members may choose to submit a “Q” Portfolio for review every 4 years. For all existing qualified members at the launch of the CPD programme, their 4 year period will start on the 1st April 2012, & expire on the 1st April 2016. Random auditing of 5% of members annually will be undertaken by NZIPP Administration personnel to ensure members are completing CPD components they claim to be doing. In addition anyone who has a formal complaint brought against them would automatically be audited. The current Q assessment program will still exist for the initial evaluation of new members to achieve their Qualified status as a base level. Once a member has achieved a Q & fulfilled the CPD Education Requirements, they will be able advertise themselves as an “Accredited Member”. This status will replace the current Qualified status & be used for determining who appears in the NZIPP Find A Photographer function on the NZIPP website. The use of the Qualified tagline & Qualified logos for members’ marketing material will be replaced by the term Accredited, & supported by new Accredited logos. Full qualified members who aren’t Accredited would still be able to display the standard NZIPP logo on marketing material, but can’t use the terms Accredited or Qualified, or use the NZIPP Accredited logo. The NZIPP Honours program of Associate, Master, Fellow, & Grand Master will continue in its current format. PRO REPORT Member Magazine of the NZIPP

Regional Update Upcoming Meetings…

Canterbury/Westland Region

Cant./Westland Regional Meeting with Guest Speaker Belinda Gregg Venue: Linton Photography, Unit 2, 16 Bernard St, Addington, Christchurch Monday, 19th March, 2012 6:30pm

It’s always good to start the year on a high, and that is just how our year started with a super inspiring seminar with Kaye Davis. Creative, imaginative, insightful, visionary….these are just few of the many descriptors that we could use to describe our day with Kaye.

Cant./Westland Regional Meeting Venue: TBC Monday, 16th April, 2012

Kaye is the current chair for the NZIPP Honours Board and a consistently high achiever at the Iris awards, and in 2011 was awarded Creative Photographer of the Year award. A lecturer at UCOL in digital imaging, she has a strong background in using the computer as a tool to enhance your photos and create pieces of timeless art. The focus of the seminar was the process of creating images, particularly for the Iris awards. Kaye covered, the awards themselves, judging, subject matter, research and creative brainstorming, post-production & printing. It was a big day! Research is a large part of Kaye’s process, particularly thinking, and contemplating what it is that she is trying to achieve and the end result. Making us think about the entire process of creating an image, Kaye taught us from start to beginning we can go through a well thought out process to extend our creativity. Find something that excites you, think about it, research it, plan it, capture it, analyse it! Even in our day-to-day photography we can use all these tools to create our imagery.

Regional Update

Being a judge for NZIPP, Kaye’s insights from what she looks for in a image and the way an image will be critiqued in a matter of seconds for the awards, were invaluable. The factors you need to think about when composing and creating these images are vast. Many of you will know from years of attending and competing in the Iris awards that no two judges will see the work the same, due to personal experience and knowledge. Having a large number of new members at the seminar, this was a sound piece of advice to take away and realise that you can’t be disheartened if you enter the awards and walk away ‘empty-handed’, the potential discussion regarding your image can be just as rewarding. Kaye’s editing process of an image can be highly intricate, and in showing us her post-production on one of her Gold winning images from 2011, we were shown Photoshop techniques Kaye uses to achieve her stunning images, and as always one always can learn new tricks in Photoshop as there is always more than one way to do something. A fantastic day, with a fabulous teacher, and remember, when creating an image, “think about how the image makes you feel”. A huge thanks to Kaye for taking time out of her busy schedule, especially with the teaching year about to start. Another huge thanks to Tracey and Mark from Photo Warehouse who kindly sponsored the day. And to the staff at Elevate who kept us watered and fed throughout the day.

Regional Update

Regional Update Wellington Region 2012 has hit the ground running for Wellington with a morning planning meeting at the Lighthouse Cinema February 1 that sketched out a full year programme, themes, guests, structure & this allocated different committee members to be the convener of the various meetings. Generally each meeting will have a theme & guest plus a Q & A forum with invited locals to add depth to the theme. Shortly our full year programme will be published. Having WPS as our main venue & installing a permanent HD quality projector that will give benefits of an assured location & consistent image quality. Already working well with first meeting February 16 being presented by Richard Wood - The 2011 & current NZIPP Photographer of the Year. His theme was CREATIVITY - How to break down barriers and access your creative genius self.

Richard Wood at Wellington Region February presentation

A stimulating & thought provoking presentation. Richard stepped through the normal barriers that constrain free creative process & related it back to a more child-like simplicity & openness to approaching what can be done rather than what can’t be done. He illustrated these concepts with several of his own personal projects that involved big ideas, high production values & big casts. His Face-book community certainly helped deliver locations, discussion & people who in turn became involved. Productions that in commercial terms alone could not have been funded took on a life of there own & became possible. It just required a ‘no limits’ ceiling to what he would like to do for a creative goal, then getting people around him that extended his resource & nurtured the fine tuning of the execution. Do not miss an opportunity to hear Richard’s presentation ....... it could equally have been titled “the secret process to win photo awards!”

He covered many time saving tips and ways to customize the program to suit your specific needs and to give a more professional edge when meeting with clients. He shared tips on streamlining workflow, metadata, tethered shooting, collections, keywording, ratings and image collections. We all have our own way of using programs like Lightroom but even the smallest tips can help speed up the process significantly. Harry also showed us how he creates his award winning images. Harry is available for one on one tutoring and mentoring. You can contact him at harry@redzebrastudio.co.nz. I would also recommend him to the other regions if you are looking for a guest speaker.

Harry Janssen

Master of Photography (MNZIPP) & Auckland Photographer of the Year 2011 Website: http://www.redzebrastudio.co.nz Tell us a little about yourself: I come from The Netherlands & I’m the youngest of nine. My hometown is in the country, away from big cities. Always enjoyed country life, couldn’t be a townie & I loved to see crops grow. I used to stop sometimes on the side of the road to smell the onions. Maybe that’s the reason we live in Pukekohe. I studied to become a mechanical engineer but I really wanted to be a photographer. Jody & I moved to NZ nearly 30 years ago. I worked in photographic labs & many years as a retouch artist for well-known New Zealand photographers.

Regional Update

How did you get into photography? My interest in photography started at an early age. Even at a young age, I had visions of images but no way to capture or express them. At some stage, I can’t remember what age I was, I won a plastic Holga type camera at a fair. It took 127 type film spools. That was my first close encounter with photography. However, my ‘real’ photography started a bit later, I think I was 20. There is a musical connection. Music is & always has been very important to me. For as long as I can remember there was music playing in our house. When I was little, I remember my sisters listening to Buddy Holly, etc. We had this radio; it was huge, made of Bakelite or something & weighed a ton. That radio was always on. When I grew older, my interest in music grew exponentially. On Saturday mornings, my older brother & I used to go out to buy LP’s. Soon I had hundreds of them. This had a huge effect on my photographic interest. I was really fascinated by the artwork on those LP covers. Captivated by the work of Hypgnosis, Roger Dean, Hugh Syme & others, I recognised the want of creating images like that. It was a major link between the visions I had & how to express them: photographically! Right from the get-go, I wanted to combine several images into one or create images that could not be made in-camera only. I had been shooting for about a year when I landed a job working for a local photographer. My job: shooting weddings, portraits, commercial stuff, studio stuff, darkroom work, developing, printing, creating wedding albums, retouching with pencil & brush. But there was also a shop, so: camera sales & helping camera buyers taking better pictures. I learned so much in a short amount of time. Working in a camera shop has some other advantages: buying photographic gear at cost price. Almost immediately, I had a darkroom at home with everything in it. Now I could start creating those visions. Most interesting place you have ever photographed in? This is a difficult question after shooting for nearly 35 years! The most satisfying place I’ve photographed recently is the Great Plains of Saskatchewan. Some-thing I love is photographing big skies; no sky is bigger than in Saskatchewan. Tell us about your business: My business, Redzebra Studio was started about seven years ago. Graphic design, commercial photography, & tuition. It’s a combination of things my mind is made of. The engineering, graphical & systematic way of thinking. The photographic, creative visions & link between commercial photography & engineering. And my passion to share what I’ve learned by teaching others.

Regional Update

Regional Update Auckland Photographer Profile Continued: A particularly satisfying job: A job where photography & design are combined into one finished product. Also very satisfying is working with Lightroom, the modern version of the darkroom I guess. It’s a joy to correct images with Lightroom. Often I’m amazed how much information there is embedded inside a digital image file. Lightroom gives me the ability to release all of this information, no longer getting frustrated by limitations. How can you possibly not love that! Something that makes you grumpy? I get tired of comments about digital photography, Photoshop, etc. One fact is very clear to me; film is gone & it will not come back. For me personally, discovering Photoshop & digital photography changed everything. Now, finally after all those years struggling in the darkroom, trying to get those visions printed on paper has become reality. Some stuff simply couldn’t be done because of technology restrictions &/or restrictions in the availability of resources. Often I got frustrated by not being able to get the style I wanted. Photoshop removed all of those restrictions for me. When I saw Photoshop (V2, I think), I immediately bought it & got rid of all my darkroom stuff. It was life changing! Now, no matter what your mind creates, you can re-create those visions with the technology available. What makes me grumpy? The expression that something is ‘over Photoshopped’. It may be, but to me there are only two kinds of images: a good image & a bad image. Right from the beginning, photographers have manipulated their images. One of the first things was hand colouring. Never have I heard that something was ‘over darkroomed’. Thank heavens that we now have all these beautiful tools to create incredible images. Sometimes I wished that I had them earlier...... Some other photographers whose work you admire: Well, I do not know a few that really stand out for me. There are way too many to mention. The most gratifying thing for me is the NZIPP Iris Awards. I admire that work mostly because it is so close to my own. There is nothing like seeing my work up there next to the work of people I admire. I take inspiration from lots of different things but they always seem to be details, never or hardly ever, complete work. More like wow, I like that camera angle, that texture. I like that sky or that composition. It is a piece that I like rather than the whole thing. Recent accomplishments: In 2011, I was awarded Master of Photography & NZIPP Auckland Photographer of the Year. After 35 years of working with images & in recognition of the knowledge I have gained, this would be one my proudest moments. NZIPP has improved & continues to improve my work because of the fact that your work is watched & judged by New Zealand’s best photographers. It pushes me to do better each year at the Iris Awards & therefore to do better for my customers.

The Missing Links

MARCH 2012

The Missing Links Written by Malcolm Somerville

This is probably more deep and meaningful than is intended? What is it about the 5th frame of a 120 roll of Fujifilm RVP that is so good? At least one local magazine ‘Your Home and Garden’ thinks so. Perhaps there is a longing for the days of when photographers used the real thing film. Or maybe it signals to the innocent reader that they aren’t just grabbing images on their iPhone; they are using proper photographers. How do those proper photographers feel, some of them NZIPP and AIPA members; when they find their supplied digital images are framed in RVP clips? What will future forensic archivists feel when they find this stuff out of historic context? Maybe this is insignificant detail but as Henri Cartier Bresson said: “Long live the details”. Which leads me into what I began last month when I pointed to an essay “It’s all about the Small Details’ by photographer and reviewer Mark Dubovoy in a recent Luminous Landscape... you may be interested that part 2 ‘Everything matters’ is now on-line http://tinyurl.com/7c6hstp.

Finally this month I will point you to an item on the Chase Jarvis blog by his Executive Producer Kate as she discusses dealing with contracts; http:// tinyurl.com/6nowmnq Our law is different in many ways but dealing to contracts and her example is Non-Disclosure Agreements, illustrates the thoroughness of how contracts and the details of contracts must be addressed. Remember, whatever you are doing the Devil is in the Detail, or as as it was quoted originally, God is in the Detail. And for a giggle, watch this on YouTube “Stuff people say to photographers!” http://tinyurl.com/6suoe42

ESTHER BUNNING After three years of studying Textile Design at Wellington Polytechnic in the late 1980's, Esther worked as a designer before making the switch to full time photographer in 1994. She went on to complete a Digital Imaging paper in 1998 at Massey University and this enabled Esther to bring together her two areas of work - photography and design. She has combined these to create a unique photographic-illustrative style. Esther's ethereal illustrative style fuses photography and illustration to stunning effect and is notable for vibrant colours, style and elegance. Her versatility is reßected in her work which includes both national and international assignments, and contemporary Wedding and Portraiture. Esther has won many awards for her work, including NZIPP Wedding Photographer of the Year 2000, NZIPP Commercial Photographer of the Year 2001, NZIPP Illustrative&amp;Editorial Photographer of the Year 2006, a Þnalist for NZIPP People Photographer of the Year 2008, and most recently, Wellington NZIPP Photographer of the Year 2009, and 2011. In 2011 she also won the NZIPP Highest Scoring Colour Print award, and was a Þnalist for "Photographer of the Year". She is a Fellow of the NZIPP with three bars to her name. She is inspired by beautiful light and has a hankering for movement, out of focus images and colour shifts away from the conventional.
