Peer-led Photography*

(Morning Elective)+

Our photography elective this year will be a further development of the model started last year.  Rather than being a taught elective led by one 'expert', we’ll be sharing with each other knowledge we already have and where we hope to further develop our photographic skills.

We’ll have the opportunity to share our particular photographic interests, what motivates us, tips and insights picked up along the way as well as things we’re trying out or might be finding challenging at the moment.  Another person in the group just may bring the help you’re looking for or you may have the knowledge someone else is needing. This will be a time of fun, encouragement and support, to grow into the next step whether that be with the camera, post processing techniques or other areas.

It won’t just be sitting talking or looking at computer screens either. Tasmania is a stunning photographic location and the area around Poatina has amazing light that will provide wonderful opportunities to capture some memorable shots.  The group will have daily opportunities to explore the area around Poatina by foot and/or by vehicle in the nearby region. Also, we will each have the opportunity to contribute to a group exhibition displaying some of the work we will create during the week.

 Whilst the official elective time is from 9am until morning tea time, members will be free to rise early to catch the dawn light, and may also like to consider choosing 'Retreat Mode' or 'Mix it Up' if they desire further flexibility in the afternoons to continue their photographic work.

You will need to bring your own camera and any other photographic equipment you wish to use (e.g. laptop for processing, tripod etc). You may also wish to bring your bushwalking gear. There will be a space allocated as a 'home base' and a vehicle provided for outings. A local Poatina photographer, Ian I'Anson, has agreed to act as the group's facilitator and is ready to guide the group to a number of great local spots if desired.

* Please note that whilst there is no requirement for any particular level of skill or equipment to participate, that this is not a taught elective. It is recommended that members of the group be at an intermediate level (not beginner) as we will not be in a position to teach basic techniques if you do not have sufficient photographic experience or equipment to work independently as part of this group.

+ Whilst listed as a 'Morning Elective', it is very likely that some members of the group will choose to rise early and/or work in the late afternoon/early evening in order to take advantage of the best lighting conditions. There is no obligation however to work outside of the normal elective times. Minimum and maximum registration numbers apply to all electives with places awarded on a first come first served basis. Please ensure that you have indicated a second choice for both Morning and Afternoon Electives when registering online in case your first choice is unavailable.
