The Australian Institute for Professional Photography (AIPP) has announced the opening of registration for its Nikon AIPP Event, which will be held in the Hunter Valley in NSW from 26-29 August.

The five-star Cypress Lakes Resort will be the host venue. Headlining the speaker roster this year is the world’s top photojournalist, James Nachtwey. Mr Nachtwey has dedicated his career to documenting wars and critical social issues worldwide. Other speakers include notables like Vincent Laforet from the USA, Jen & Steve Bebb from Canada, Steve Parish and many more who will be sharing expertise and insights.

The AIPP organises The Event as an opportunity for working photographers to invest in education and networking to further their careers. As such, attendees can partake in one of 13 workshops on topics tailored to small groups, many set off site in exciting locations. The workshops are limited in the number of attendees they can accommodate, so those interested should book soon.
