Andre Elhay Photography

Our official event photographer is André Elhay Photography. You can view his handiwork across the ComiXpo web site. When asked about the art of photography Andre tells us, ‘Whenever possible, I shoot on medium format film or if it’s going to be fast furious, 35mm film is the way to go. It is always amazing. You’ll find I’m constantly looking for light. The way it falls on a subject, the way it shapes a face – it’s not something I can switch off. I’ve been told I live in the wrong decade. I should have been alive in the 1950s and 60s, hanging out in jazz clubs, shooting film and living large. Maybe it’s why I do what I do.’

Austrek

Austrek is the oldest Star Trek fan club in Australia, and the second oldest Star Trek fan club in the world. They are a club dedicated to their members and to the ideals of Star Trek, and they hold regular meetings, away missions, social get-togethers, and charity fundraisers. People often ask, ‘Why is Star Trek so popular?’ Austrek  believe the positive vision of the future each episode envisages is the answer. Gene Roddenberry’s vision of all mankind working together in a great quest for  knowledge sets the theme for each show and gives all the peoples of planet  Earth a goal to work towards.

Search algorithms let people input specific details into the site to quickly find a short list of relevant members according to what it is they are looking for.
