Photography Workshop for Young People


As part of GSFI’s SCOPE program, I am putting on a photography workshop for young people in Albany, Western Australia (my hometown!) on Sunday, 22nd August 2010.

“In this exciting and inspiring workshop with Perth photographer Samm Blake learn how to find your own artistic style, how to shoot manually with a camera, how to use different lenses, work with natural light, learn all about displaying and sharing your images and much, much more. Taking part in these workshops will inspire you to find your own voice as a photographer and explore your own creative style.

You will also learn the art of storytelling using your images so you are able to create great images that ultimately are a collaboration between the photographer (you!) and the subject. You can bring your own camera too, however this is not a requirement. The Info Session and workshop is being offered through GSFI’s SCOPE program for young people 12-25yrs, parents and members of the community are also invited to attend on Sunday August 22nd.”

(just to add a note… these photography workshop are not for professional photographers, I am not covering anything to do with a operating a wedding photography business. Im not earning any money from this, I am doing this to give back to community that I grew up in and hopefully be able to inspire some young people to become photographers, cause really, its the best job in the universe ;)
