Photography Workshop for Craft Practitioners

Photographs are an integral part of communicating a craft practice.  Using high quality images helps to communicate your brand, support your practice narrative and plays an important part in not only marketing products, but also supporting successful grant applications.

As part of our commitment to developing Victorian makers Craft Victoria is bringing together a team of experts to run an intimate photography workshop.  In this workshop – limited to 15 people – we will explore basic photography principles and composition rules through to flat lay techniques and light box use.

Delivered over four and a half hours, three professional representatives will work hands on with a small number of participants. Kristen Halkett, artist, designer, photographer and teacher will cover photography basics and the rules of composition, while Craft’s crack retail team of Sarah Weston and Hope Lumsden Barry will provide iPhone trick and hacks and the secrets to the perfect flat lay.  In addition, Natalie Jeffcott, photographer and vintage stylist will take headshots of each participant for use on website, within press kits on social media.

Through the course of this session participants will also gain understanding of basic editing techniques and what makes a good retail photograph.

To top it all off participants will receive a delicious vegan lunch from Good Freakin Food.
