Sad Mag, my favourite independent arts and culture magazine, is organizing a series of affordable, creative workshops this summer that all young creatives should check out!
“Documenting Your Life: A Photographer’s Notes From The Field” is the first workshop in this exciting summer series.
Workshop details (pulled directly from the website):
Created with the absolute beginner in mind, “Documenting Your Life” is a photography workshop led by Grant Harder that is designed to kick-start students, hobbyists, and aspiring professionals with advice from a working photographer.
Saturday, July 9
The Waldorf — 1489 East Hastings Street (at Clark)
12:00 — 3:00 p.m.
The three-hour workshop will teach participants how to think and shoot like a photographer. Participants will learn:
- What to think about when deciding how and what to shoot
- How to train your eye and trust your instincts
- What equipment you do—and don’t—really need
- How to promote your work and get that first job
Bring your camera for a hands-on, guided photo excursion in the surrounding neighbourhood. Point and shoot cameras are fine—no “professional” equipment necessary.
