UCOL student photographer is top shot


Third Year UCOL Bachelor of Applied Visual Imaging student Amy Fowler shot her way to two titles at the annual Epson / NZIPP Iris Professional Photography Awards this week.

Amy was named the Student Photographer of the Year for the second year in a row and became the first person to do so, in the history of the prestigious event.

It is the 11th year in succession that a UCOL student has claimed the student title at the NZ Institute of Professional Photography’s annual gathering.

Amy was one of 36 Bachelor of Applied Visual Imaging (BAVI) and Diploma Photographic Imaging students who submitted entries to the hotly contested print competitions to vie for gold, silver and bronze awards.

Of the 68 awards in the Student Category, UCOL students claimed 40 of them. The remaining 28 awards were shared by the five other photography institutions.

The students’ winning tally: 22 Bronze, seven Silvers, seven Silvers with Distinction, three Golds, of which Amy Fowler won two; and one Gold with Distinction (Layla Papworth).

Industry and Institute awards were conferred at a Gala Dinner last night.

UCOL Lecturer and Grand Master of the NZ Institute of Professional Photography Kaye Davis, was named Creative Photographer of the Year for the second consecutive year. Her fellow Lecturers ascended the NZIPP qualifications ladder with Ian Rotherham gaining a Bar to his Masters, and Michael Watson gaining his Associateship.

Twenty three UCOL students and teaching staff travelled to Rotorua to assist during the print judging sessions and attend the NZIPP conference that ran in conjunction.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
