HUB

Welcome to the Lenscape’s HUB

...this is where all the action is folks. Our entire 2-day conference will be centred around HUB. 

Once you’ve finished sitting back and soaking up seminars or getting hands-on within our workshops you’ll head back to HUB, this is where you’ll enjoy ALL.THE.FOOD, deliveries of morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea treats all happen in HUB. Looking for your workshop group, no problem, you’ll find the ringleaders of your out and about workshops in HUB too.

Use HUB as a place to have coffee with companions, tango with the trade and be as cool as a cucumber after fun in the sun.

And once we’ve free-styled and re-styled we’ll be presenting The World Photographic Cup Presentation and the “top secret” Print Auction in HUB.

Excited? Yep, we are too.
