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.
