Capturing The Essence Of Wellington On Film!

24 Hours In Wellington

Capturing the Essence of Wellington on film!

A Project of the Wellington Photographic Society

31 May 2002



Picture this: If you could chronicle, on film, one complete day in the life of the city of Wellington - what would you see?

Wellington is about to be captured on film as part of a major photo shoot to be held in September this year. 24 Hours in Wellington is a project that will see fifty local photographers fan out across the city to capture the essence of what makes our city and our people tick. The event is organised by the Wellington Photographic Society which ran a similar and highly successful project in 1999. Participants will range from over all ages and levels of experience.

Project organiser, Graham Blow says the project will be both unique and challenging. It will allow non-professional photographers the chance to experience life as working photojournalists, while also giving something back to Wellington itself.

"One aim of the project is to illustrate what makes Wellington the vibrant and diverse city it is today. Wellingtonians will be able to see how their city has grown and changed since the last 24 Hours in Wellington photo shoot in 1999".

The project is also backed by the local professional community, with a number of well-known commercial and media photographers offering their services as team leaders and mentors.

The 24 Hours in Wellington photo shoot will run from 4 pm on Friday September 20 to 4pm the next day. Over that period each photographer will complete at least three assignments with guidance and support from team leaders and management personnel.

Following the event the 50 best images will be exhibited at the WestpacTrust St James theatre. Images will also be published in local and national media and posted on the Wellington Photographic Society website at: where images from the 1999 event can be viewed.
