Photographers fun raises funds in Birdsville for RFDS

November 1, 2012

In late October 2012 an intrepid group of 11 photographers met at the Birdsville Hotel after a jaunt out into the Simpson for sunset. After a round of drinks they launched into an auction for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) and raised an incredible $1,200.00.

The group were on an Outback Odyssey Photography Tour led by Danielle Lancaster from Bluedog Photography and Alan Smith of Outback Aussie Tours. Items for sale included a signed print from Birdsville artist Wolfgang John, limited edition signs, a recipe book and bottle of liquor from the Mackay region and a copy of Danielle’s Out Around the Bulloo and prints from the Birdsville region.
‘What a great effort, it really blew me away,’ said Alan Smith who shared the auctioneering with Russell Jordan a participant of the tour. ‘We launched the Outback Desert Odyssey Tour last year and it is now one of our signature events as those who join us not only see the amazing landscape but experience meeting the people who have become friends of Danielle’s through her long association with the region. It’s more than a usual tour’.

The auction followed some fun and frivolity for the tours outback sunset shoot where many dressed up in theme for Priscilla, Queen of the Desert which was first released to in 1994. And yes, all did go into the bar for a drink in full dress. What a great way to have fun and raise funds for such a worthy cause. Again a huge thank you to all involved.
