Joe McNally, Through the Lens Tour


The much anticipated Joe McNally, Through the Lens Tour, with stops in Australia and New Zealand is official and taking place in May. Sydney is the first stop in a month long jam-packed program, which will take Joe to the Gold Coast, Auckland NZ and finally Melbourne.

As part of the Joe McNally, Through the Lens Tour, Joe will present seminars, keynote talks and exclusive workshops. Fans, amateur and professional photographers will have a chance to hear Joe’s inspiring photography journey first-hand, see photography demonstrations and in the exclusive workshops get a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend a day with this humble internationally acclaimed photographer.

One of the many highlights of Joe’s career is that he is an on-going, 23 year contributor to National Geographic. Additionally, one of his most well-known series is “Faces of Ground Zero — Giant Polaroid Collection”, which features portraits of the heroes of 9/11.

The Joe McNally, Through the Lens Tour by Mentem Inc is thrilled to announce that Nikon Australia has come on board as the presenting partner of the tour.

Joe McNally is an ambassador for Nikon and one of the first to explore the capabilities of the new Nikon D4 - Nikon’s flagship model released earlier this year. As the presenting partner, Nikon Australia will be involved at every session providing attendees with technical advice and support on their professional range of Nikon gear including the Nikon D4 and D800.

James Murray, Nikon Australia’s General Manager, Sales and Marketing commented, ‘Nikon Australia is excited to be a part of bringing internationally acclaimed photographer, Joe McNally and this landmark tour to Australia’.

‘Throughout his career and countless inspirational and iconic images, Joe has shared with us his incredible vision down the barrel of his lens. We look forward to taking this to the next level with Joe telling us the stories behind some of these images, and revealing his key photography tips and techniques during the Joe McNally, Through the Lens Tour,’ said Mr Murray.
