The sudden death of a long time personal cinematographer colleague and a foundation interstate AMMPT member John Bowring A.C.S. John established the respected industry equipment supplier, Melbourne based LEMAC and subsequently opening a branch office in Sydney.
John had a close association with GTV in Melbourne and shot the original film segments for the Paul Hogan Show. John was passionate about preserving the heritage of the Australian film & television industry and had established a display of memorabilia in his Richmond office. His contribution to the support and introduction of innovations to the local industry is without peer. Not only will he be sadly missed as an AMMPT member, the entire industry will have lost one of its most ardent supporters.
