Cowra Regional Art Gallery in partnership with the Australian Centre for Photography will present a special two day intensive course on the practical aspects of street photography. Participants will be introduced to the history of street photography and draw inspiration from photographic masters such as William Eggleston, Diane Arbus, Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand and William Klein.
With workshop tutor, Marco Bok, participants will discuss techniques for working candidly and unobtrusively in public places. Participants will learn to overcome their fears in relation to seizing the moment and approaching people for impromptu, in situ, street portraits.
Encouraging participants to dare to be themselves, Marco will work with participants to develop work that stem from their personality and interests. Participants will work as a group to refine their ideas to develop a project with the intention of selecting one image to print and display in the Cowra Library.
This workshop is for individuals with a sound knowledge of using a digital camera and photographic experience who are keen to explore visual story-telling through photography. The workshop with be presented on Saturday 30 September and Sunday 1 October 2017 from 10am to 4pm at the Gallery Meeting Room in Darling St. Participants will require their own digital camera. Cost is $90 pp (Friends of the Gallery $80 pp). School students over 16 years are welcome but must have parental approval, cost is $80 pp.
