SCHOOL HOLIDAY Photography Workshop Series
(for 8-16 yr olds)

BYO camera and SD card for this fun four-session workshop with local photographer Sandra Davis this school holidays!

Four sessions:

THURS 05 JAN 10am–1pm
Learn the basics of photography

  • Learn how to take a great picture. Have fun using reflectors & diffusers outdoors and take a tour of the summer exhibition in the gallery. Plus you’ll design & create your own picture story book using instax camera’s and instant film. It’s going to be a bit crafty too.

THURS 12 JAN 10am–1pm
Still life photography: Set the table!

  • You’ll style a delicious food photography shoot with fresh fruit & vegies from the markets.

THURS 19 JAN 10am–1pm
Curiouser and curiouser: Mystery box flatlay

  • Each one of you will receive a mystery box containing mystery objects (no it won’t be lollies)! You will photograph them from above looking straight down on them. It’s called a #flatlay & it’s kind of a big deal on instagram. It’s time to get creative!

WED 25 JAN 10am–1pm
Wanted: Confidence and attitude for studio photography

  • You’ll discover the world of studio photography. Using studio lighting you’ll create an indoor summer beach scene with props and then dress yourself up as part of the scene. Time to give your pouts and poses a real workout!
  • (Note held on Wednesday, as Thursday is a public holiday and MGA will be closed)

Expressions of interest now invited.

Once MGA has received a minimum of 8 registrations we will contact you to confirm and to take payment.
