Wally Hayes’ career has spanned more than 60 years; initially as a news photographer but for the last 25 years as photographer for Nova Scotia Tourism during which his time he produced more than half a million images of the province, both on film and digitally. Part of his work with NS Tourism involved producing audio-visual presentations that he presented around the world. His largest show was in Halifax for 2,500 tourism industry people from around the world and featured 21 slide projectors, 15 screens and more than 50 live performers. In his retirement he has turned his attention toward teaching and lecturing to share his photographic and audio-visual skills. For more information on Wally and his work visit his web site

Wally’s presentation will focus on the art of the audio-visual presentation and will share some tricks of the trade for combining pictures and music to create entertaining and informative presentations. He will share tools and resources that will help people of all ranges of ability explore what’s possible in today’s digital age.
