There are a wealth of photography workshops available these days across a wide array of subjects — for Workshop Wednesdays we round up a list of upcoming events from the photographers D-Photo trusts to deliver an exciting and educational experience.
Natural, naked indulgence
Celebrated Australian photographer Ken Ball returns to our shores in October for the second annual Creative Photography Indulgence workshop event, this time focussing on impressionistic nudes and nature photography.
Local art photographer Eva Polak will join Ball in hosting two three--day workshops on Waiheke Island, one beginning October 25 and the other October 29. Last year's Creative Indulgence sessions sold out, so get in quick if you're keen; email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Trevor Penfold, one of New Zealand's most esteemed nature photographers, will be giving a talk in Hamilton about animal photography on the morning of Tuesday, April 1.
The event, hosted by Hamilton's Continuing Education organisation, costs a mere $3 for entry and promises to be an entertaining time, with Trevor recounting some of his many adventures and sharing his considerable expertise. It's at the Hillcrest Baptist Church and starts at 10am, get in early for a good seat.
Lodge with a view
If you're in the market for a scenic getaway, May might be the time to do it, especially if you want to combine the experience with hands-on tutoring from two of New Zealand's top photographers.
