Atherton Tableland Landscape Photography Workshop
August 25 @ 8:45 am - 5:00 pm AEST
The two day workshop held at the Malanda Hotel on 24th and 25th August 2022 is targeted towards keen enthusiast and pro-sumer photographers in the Tablelands area who wish to explore, develop and hone their art skills in the landscape photography genre. The two main presenters will be Dr. Les Walkling and Steven Nowakowski.
Dr Les Walkling is an artist, educator and consultant. His works are widely exhibited and in many public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, and The National Gallery of Victoria. Les is the former Program Director of Media Arts and Senior Research Fellow and Australian Research Council Discovery Project grant recipient at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. He also works as an imaging, printing, colour management, and curatorial consultant, lecturer, supervisor and mentor, regularly conducting
digital photography courses and workshops, and serving on Arts and Culture advisory committees and boards of management.
Steven Nowakowski is an award-winning wilderness photographer and conservationist. Based in North Queensland, Australia, he has exhibited internationally, worked in Papua New Guinea and Timor Leste, and collaborated extensively with other world-class photographers and with Traditional Owners. His spectacular works are in demand around Australia and the world and remind us of the precious natural wildness on our doorstep.
Supporting the speakers will be three tutors in the room that can assist delegates one on one with questions. During the workshop the group will be able to bring their own images to edit and there will be an excursion to a location to enable landscape photography capture with the guidance of the presenters.
The delegates will experience a workshop where they can develop their skills and understanding of artistic principles in the field of landscape photography. They will have opportunities to expand their camera craft and digital editing skills.
At the conclusion of the two days, delegates can have a large format print made on the Epson printer at the workshop which can be hung at the venue for public viewing till the 28th August. Interaction with the public will enhance appreciation of tablelands landscapes and the art of landscape photography.
Your investment of $380 includes two days tuition, one excursion to landscape location, materials to make your own 420mm print and lunches.
