    It's on again this Sunday if anyone is interested.
    Ultimo Community Centre
    Bulwarra St Ultimo (Cnr William Henry St just off Harris Street)
    10am - 3pm
    After the digital onslaught at the PMA Imaging Technology show last Sunday at Darling Harbour this just might be the perfect antidote!

    re camera market Sydney

    hello there, I'm going to be in Sydney from the 5th to the 18th of September this year and would appreciate any info on camera markets etc, traditional film supply shops, galleries that might be holding photo exhibitions during this time. All and any info would be gratefully received! I'm travelling from Dublin, Ireland and am a member of APUG Ireland, really looking forward to taking some great shots......hopefully, regards June

    Hi June,
    A few things to get you started:

    Galleries:
    http://www.stillsgallery.com.au/
    http://www.acp.org.au/
    http://www.pointlight.com.au/
    http://www.blender.com.au/ (does not always exhibit photography)
    http://www.meyergallery.com.au/
    http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/exhibitions/current
    http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/events/exhibitions/index.html
    http://www.mca.com.au/default.asp?page_id=13&content_id=1750 (occasionally shows photography)

    A few stores:
    http://www.fotoriesel.com.au/shop/ (best second hand film gear store, good supply of film – good city location)
    http://www.vanbar.com.au/ (best film, chemical supply but also a bit out of the way)
    http://www.mainlinephoto.com.au/index.htm (store is a bit hard to find)

    You could spend a very profitable Saturday visiting Point Light, Stills, Meyer, Blender and ACP by foot and seeing some attractive parts of the inner city. You could also drop in at Paddington markets and pick up a few unique Christmas presents while you're at it! Feel free to send me a PM. I'd be happy to spend some time showing you around or I can give you my cell phone number if you needed some local advice while you are here.

    I'm sure you will have a great time here.

    Cheers, Tony

    I hope you enjoy your stay, June. Shame about the timing, because a friend of mine (a cousin actually) is having an exhibition in the ACP (see Tony's link above) but his exhibition finishes in late August. I haven't been to the ACP yet, but it sounds like a really nice place to visit - I'll know in a couple of weeks :D

    Regards,
    Gordon
