May 14th and 15th
Melbourne based photographer Shea Kirk is running a large format workshop out of his personal studio. Slow down and view the world upside down on the ground glass!
The full-day, hands-on workshop is suitable for a range of experience levels, from those who have never picked up a camera before, to those who already shoot film and are curious about making the jump to large format.
Shea will share the magic of the large format process from start to finish, and with DIY being a big part of his practice, he’ll offer insight and tips along the way on how you can start out easily (and cheaply) on your own large format journey. He believes in keeping things fun and accessible, and you’ll get the opportunity to shoot on a large format camera and possibly take home a finished image of your own. Spots are limited to ensure group sessions are small, focused and intimate. This program costs A$300 for the day and includes all materials and equipment.
