Wednesday’s love-in for Samsung at Zambesi’s new Newmarket store, was indeed full of luvvies. StopPress felt right overdressed in a warm spring coat and woolly socks.
The affair was to welcome the arrival of Samsung’s Ultra Touch phone and help raise funds for Youthline, through the auction of photography taken by nine local celebrities. There were going to be ten but they forgot to ask yours truly.
All photos were taken using the Samsung phone, which has the capacity to take eight-megapixel photos. The press release says “stunning eight megapixel photos” but surely that’s up to the photographer?
Anyway, you can bid for the works by Otis Frizzell, Taika Waititi, Anna Fitzpatrick, Marrissa Findlay and others at the Samsung website. The online auction closes on September 30 so bid on your favourites and help raise funds for a good cause.
