Hands on Photographic Workshop at Belmont in June

Here is a message from Di Schofield from Belmont 16s Photographic Club about a workshop they are running with Scott Fowler on June 19-21. Only a couple of spaces left. If you’re interested please contact Di or let Susan know.

” Come and spend a weekend­­­ with Scott Fowler, FPSNZ,GPSA,EFIAP,EPSA. A passionate photographer from New Zealand, who originally hails from Scotland. Let Scott show you how to get more out of your camera, which will open many more opportunities to do more post processing or even less post processing by getting it right in the camera and make better images. Friday night he will talk about the thought process to make better mages, then Saturday and Sunday we will put into practice what he talked about. Scott is one of a small handful of photographers from around the world who has achieved Gold Portfolio level with the Photographic Society of America. This is a unique opportunity to learn from Scott.”  

Scott Fowler’s Website: http://www.scoiwi.com

There is a limit of 20 places. The cost is $195 per person. Please note that no catering will be provided.

The first 20 people who pay for the workshop will be included in the workshop. Others will be placed on a waiting list.

Nov 17 Studio Workshop for Morisset Rotary Fundraising

Here is a message from Carla Edwards. Please consider supporting this fundraising event and learning along the way. And book soon before she runs out of places…

See here and below for details Carla Edwards Atelier Nov 17

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Good morning Everyone,

I spoke at the Wangi Club night last night about the studio with model shoots I’ve been asked to set up for Morisset Rotary on November 17.

I am donating my time and my gear and I have booked models to give photographers, not versed with shooting in a studio environment, the opportunity.

It’s on a first come first served basis.  I’ll be doing a media launch next week to fill any spots not yet taken.

Kind Regards

Carla Edwards
