SMALL BUSINESS AND MONEY MANAGEMENT CLASSES 0800 355 553 I www.twoa.ac.nz TTT003f Funding correction In last week s edition of Kapi-Mana News we incorrectly reported Canopy Connection s contribution to the planned upgrade of CCTV cameras in Porirua s central business district. The amount is $10,000 over three years, not $10,000 per year. The error is regretted. Flash photography Shutter-happy: Evan McBride, left, and Brendon Doran have achieved national recognition for their photographs in D-Photo magazine. Photo: FRANCES COOK By FRANCES COOK Two Porirua men have made a splash in a national photogra- phy competition. The Nikon D-Photo Amateur Photographer of the Year had more than 2000 entries, but only 17 of them were published in the magazine D-Photo. Whitby resident Evan McBride swept the board, landing a photo on the cover of the magazine, winning photographer of the year, the people section, and the mono- chrome section. Camborne resi- dent Brendon Doran also did admirably, winning runner-up for the people section. Both men were relieved the suspense was over, since the results had been a closely guarded secret until the maga- zine hit stands. McBride was thrilled, since he had only been pursuing pho- tography since 2008, when a friend gifted him an old camera. He used overseas holidays as opportunities for photographs, and found it a great initiator for travel. [When travelling] you see so much more, because you re thinking through the lens. The wait for competition results had been particularly long for McBride. When the magazine finally come out, he was in Niue. With access to the internet but no telephone coverage, McBride s internet searches showed his photo had made the cover of the magazine, but he only found out he had won when he came back to New Zealand. I think on a personal level it s a nice verification that you can take a good photo, McBride said. Doran also focused his pho- tography around travel, with his interest initially started by pho- tography night classes before his OE in 2000. We bought this big camera, and thought we had better learn how to use it, Doran said. He said the buzz from win- ning competitions never went away. Being printed is amazing. Maybe if you became a pro- fessional photographer it would wear off, but even then, I still think it would be awesome. It s just nice to have a photo in a magazine. I can show my parents I actually do quite well.
