Who it’s for: Aged 14-25 and interested in skateboarding and photography.
The workshop aims to show you how you can improve your photography, take amazing skate and non-skate pictures, and learn wider creative industry and employability skills – building portfolios and contacts, and thinking of the kind of work, study or further hobbies/interests you can pursue in the future.
What’s the Op?
The workshop will run for 4 days in the (Nottingham City) half-term week/the week of the second May Bank Holiday, from Tuesday the 29th May until Friday the 1st June 2018. There will then be an exhibition of the participants’ photographs, alongside the work of experienced local skate photographers and industry experts opening on Friday the 22nd of June until Monday the 25th June. Both the workshop and the exhibition will be at Nottingham’s Photo Parlour.
Terms & Niggly Bits
- Taught sessions each day from the 29th May to the 1st June, from 11am to 6pm, including an introduction from an industry expert, composition and preparation of skate photos, lighting (in the field and in the studio), using your interest in skateboarding to improve your portrait, architectural and wider street photography, using digital and film cameras, with the option of dark room sessions for interested participants;
- Experienced mentors will go skating with the participants in the afternoon/evening of each day, and will help and advise you on how to take better photographs with other participants and their friends; and
