I’m excited about conducting a two-day, stock photography workshop at SHOOT Photography Workshops in Perth at the end of next month. Apart from giving me yet another excuse to visit Western Australia, I’m looking forward to using the superb facilities at SHOOT. The workshop will be conducted over the weekend of Saturday 29th October and Sunday 30th October. If you are interested in learning how to make money from your photographs and want to spend an entire weekend immersed in the world of photography enrol now! To find out more, go here.
My good friend and colleague, Simon Cowling, has, I believe, taken photo education in Australia to a new level with the launching of Shoot , a new photo studies workshop in Perth. With the backing of Camera Electronic Pty Ltd, Simon, has created the ideal venue for photographers ambitious to master their cameras and acquire a high level of skill, to learn in a small, class environment.
Now, their promotional material claims that Shoot is “Perth’s premier photographic teaching workshop”. I’d not argue with this, except to say that this could be somewhat of an understatement. I’ve known and taught alongside Simon for 30 years or more. When it comes to photography and the teaching of the craft, Simon Cowling is someone who makes your average perfectionist look downright careless. When it comes to the creation of an environment in which to learn, Shoot is perfect.
Statement of vested interest: later this year, I’ ll be teaching a two day seminar on stock photography at Shoot. I’m really looking forward to it…
My good friend and colleague, Roel Loopers, regularly documents his love of Fremantle through his blog Freo’s View.
Inspired by his devotion to that beautiful city and also by a long and very fine lunch with him and some friends at ECCO a couple of weeks ago, I wandered around the city for a few hours to put together my view of his home town. Here’s my perspective of the place affectionately called Freo. If this modest taste of Fremantle intrigues you, and you want more, you can see Roel’s take on the city and its vibrant life here.
