10th Anniversary: At Easter 2004, our society celebrated its 10th anniversary. Several exciting events marked this celebration including an exhibition in the Merivale Mall which showcased members photos. We were also extremely fortunate to have Canadian photographer, Freeman Patterson, present a one day photography workshop for our society members. What an incredible time that was! Our anniversary celebration culminated in a wonderful dinner and social evening. During the evening, we presented Freeman Patterson with an honorary Fellowship of the Nature Photography Society of New Zealand.
