Workshop Facilitator: Alison Beaumont
Taking time out to soak up your surroundings, photography is a great way to appreciate and capture your environment.
Do you have a camera or camera phone and would like to take better pictures and learn how to edit and share them?
This short course will use interactive activities to help you to develop and explore photography, enjoying the moments you capture. There will be an outdoor field trip near to the art gallery to explore and take pictures, followed by an editing and online sharing session at the Art House.

About Alison: Photography for me is about capturing moments and exploring our surroundings, also the moments we cherish with family or friends. My practice in photography explores notions space, the effects of nature and also how photography can be used therapeutically for self or group reflection. I have over 4 years education in photography, gaining BA Hons in Photography at Staffordshire University in the UK. I have exhibited at the Alternator Gallery, Lake Country Art Gallery, Lake Country Artwalk, Artsco & Rotary Centre for the Arts, provincially at the BC Professional Photographers conference.
I enjoy sharing my passion for photography and hope to inspire others to take photographs and enjoy the memories they create.
