The process of making great photographs doesn’t end when you put down the camera – the darkroom is where the real magic begins.
The Beginners black-and-white film and darkroom program is designed for students to learn the fine art of black-and-white film photography. On completion of the program, participants will have developed the skills necessary to make their own creative statements using film photography. Students will have the opportunity to develop an individual project, working through conceptual and technical processes to produce high-quality images. This program is usually runs over six weeks.
The Point, Shoot & Self-Publish photography course, usually run over eight weeks, is designed for participants to create a unique, professional standard photography book using point and shoot digital photography combined with DIY book-publishing. Structured around themes chosen by the participant, this program will focus on personal photography practice, using a series of pictures to communicate personal themes and/or subjects. Participants will use digital cameras and a computer book-making program to create their own photobook, which they will be able to keep on completion of the course.
Digital storytelling allows people to tell their own stories in their own voice. The course, usually run over eight weeks, provide professional support for the making of a short film of three to five minutes. Working with Artistic Director Jenni Savigny (Gen S Stories), a photographer and a filmmaker, participants write their own film script, record their own voice-over and create their own images. The classes are fun, safe and highly creative. Digital stories are a simple and powerful way to celebrate people and also their organisations and communities.
