Sony photo booth
This season, Surf Life Saving New Zealand is proud to have Sony
New Zealand as a partner of our national sports events. In addition
to capturing footage utilising Sony's waterproof Action Cams and 4K
Handycam camcorders at Oceans '18, the Sony team will be on site
with a photo booth on Thursday and Friday to take high quality
portrait photographs of the athletes, volunteers and parents with
their new Sony Alpha cameras. The imagery will be available to view
on Surf Life Saving New Zealand and Sony's social media channels
and may even be included in an upcoming photography exhibition.
Anyone wishing to be photographed at the event will need to sign
a release form and those aged under 18 will need
permission from a parent or guardian. For any athletes Under 18
that won't be attending with a parent/guardian, please make sure
they fill out this form prior and bring it along to
the event to avoid disappointment. Those that visit the photo booth
to have their photo taken will be in to win some Sony gear
including headphones and portable speakers.
