Photographic workshop

Develop your photographic skills beyond just point and click.

3 one-day hands-on workshops – Re-Vision Dungog: A Photographic Portrait

… culminating in a photo shoot and an exhibition.

In a significant workshop across three days, working with visiting experts, you will have the chance to plan, design and conduct a photo shoot that looks at Dungog in a new light.

Immerse yourself over the three one-day workshops (May 11, 12, 25) in the technical, conceptual and practical tasks of making a shoot happen. Work individually and in groups, see this place through fresh eyes, and take your photographic skills beyond the familiar “point and click” way of taking a shot.

On Saturday 11 May, artist/photographer Robyn Moore will provide technical photographic guidance and explore visual narratives. Participants will visit locations, start mocking up potential scenarios, put their cameras through their paces, and expand their view of what photographs can be.

Then on Sunday 12 May, performance/visual artist Barbara Campbell will work with to get you thinking about identity and how you see the place you live. To dive deeper into story, “truth”, meaning. To explore new possibilities for the shoot. And then to start thinking about props, angles, frames, story-telling, metaphor – and casting.

For the next two weeks, individually or in groups, you will work on the development of your own (individual or group) projects.

The final day, Saturday 25 May, begins with a viewing and discussion of work to date, before visual artist Jane Richens supports teams of students to achieve the vision they’ve planned and burrow further into the experience.

When: Over three weekend days in May, 11, 12, 25. Starting around 9.30 and finishing about 4.30pm.

Where: First day at the Dungog Showground and the Dungog Shire Community Centre. A map will be provided when you book. Later days will depend on the desires of the group.

Cost: $120 adult. There is a special price for limited number of Dungog High School students of $60 (students will need to submit an EOI to be selected.)

We will not be providing cameras so you need to have your own (or borrow one). Let us know your current level of photographic skill and your arts interests.

Creatively re-vision Dungog shire, collaborate with professional artists, and produce unexpected photos for exhibition in this inspirational series of workshops.  It’s about photography, expression, narrative, discovery and re-thinking.
