This summer, creative teenagers have the perfect oppertunity to come to grips with the practical side of professional photography, as one of Auckland's leading photo studios opens its doors for an inaugural Photography Summer School intake. Auckland's Kingsize Studios is now accepting applicants for its new educational programme targeted to current high school students studying visual arts or with an interest in breaking into photography, as well as school leavers looking to enhance their portfolios.
The course is an intensive one-week programme running January 12-16, which will see students immersed in the art and craft of photography. As well as learning theory, participants will be putting technical learning into practise, shooting every day both within the professional studio set-up and on location.
The programme will serve as an ideal introduction to using professional camera and lighting equipment as well as natural light. At the end of the course, in addition to much experience with industry-standard gear, attendees will leave with a portfolio of imagery to serve them in advancing career prospects.
The hands-on experience costs $475 and has been designed not only for those looking to become pro photographers, but to equip those looking to get into any creative industry – designing, writing, advertising, media, sales – in which multi-disciplinary talent is an asset.
