    Question Upcoming photo convention, anybody going? Should I?

    Hey guys, there's an upcoming photo convention that I think y'all may find interesting. I think I wanna go but it's damn far! Anyways here are the details:

    What: SAFRA Photo Convention 2013

    Venue: SAFRA Mount Faber

    Date & Time: 23rd November 2013, 8.15am - 4pm

    Fees: $2 (SAFRA photography club member), $22 (SAFRA member), $5 (Student), and $60 for Guests lol...

    Highlights: -BG Eric Tan Huck Gim and his presentation,
    -Some Adam Ferguson dude and his pictures
    -Adobe photoshop workshop.
    -Refreshments

    Anybody knows of this event and is going? Hopefully can give a review on this Adam Ferguson guy, I read online he has multiple awards blah blah but usually those are biased sources.

    Quite interested to go because the theme is about the war and tension between US and Afghanistan, but like not worth leh...it's expensive and so far away.

    Anybody got any input? Thanks!!

    Er... Adam Ferguson is pretty well known actually, pretty good... And if you are interested, then go lor. Frankly, S$60 is not really that much and you are living in Singapore... there is no such thing as far. You can walk from one end of Singapore to the next without a problem, it is not like you stay in Australia Perth and wanted to go to Melbourne for a photography convention, that would be far.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    On SAFRA's website, for non-SAFRA members, there is a buy 3 get 1 free ticket offer. Can make use of that and price becomes $45.

    As for multiple awards, he is a World Press Photo Award winner. Not biased at all.
