Our digital calendar, released each month, features the 12 winning and notable entries from the previous year’s Bulletin Board photo competition.
The photo competition always impresses – and last year was no different.
This photo of Dunedin’s St Clair beach was among the top-placed entries. It was taken by Aquinas College, Associate Head of College, Brian Satake.
"I took this photo on an unusually hot Christmas day, walking with my family … I had forgotten my usual bulky DSLR and only had my phone with me. I quickly pulled it out and snapped away, thinking the pictures would not be very clear. However, I was pleasantly surprised - never underestimate a small camera and your instincts. Later, I converted the photo to black and white to create a more dramatic effect.”
"I’ve been interested in photography since high school when a friend encouraged me to help with the yearbook. Later in life, I enrolled in a few photography courses. These have increased my interest and improved my skills. Nowadays I enjoy snapping family life, landscapes and College events."
