How you will learn
You will work collaboratively in a small group of fellow participants and Alan to design your project and intention for a body of work that results in a panel of images that are themed and created in the same style. Your eye, technique, composition and editing will all improve and develop as a result of working on a single idea over six months.
You will receive input, feedback and suggestions at each class on your project and individual images.
Alan will also demonstrate re-editing techniques and ideas for possible enhancement.
Alan is passionate about photography and a qualified photography tutor. He has exhibited in numerous exhibitions, locally, nationally and internationally and has also been awarded in numerous prestigious national and international photography competitions.
Alan has also developed his own bodies of work as personal projects so understands what is needed and will be sharing his own experience and imparting as much knowledge to you as possible.
