Artwork Photography & Instagram for Artists

Sun September 20 at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

When: Sunday September 20th, 10am – 2pm

Price: $150 (plus Eventbrite booking fee)

What to Bring: A small artwork you’ve made (roughly A3 or smaller), your smartphone or tablet, a camera (if you have one), a smartphone tripod (if you have one), and a list of 3-5 of your favourite artists on Instagram. Please bring your own lunch, OR you can head up to Bills Beans East Orange for a break.

What you’ll get: a booklet full of tips, trick, hints, and activities, a notebook to write down new ideas, props and backgrounds to practice with, light snacks and refreshments.

About the Workshop: Join Gallery director and practicing artist Madeline Young-Holborow for a 4 hour intensive on “How to photograph your artwork with a smartphone” AND “Social media content ideas for artists and creatives”.

Photography is SO IMPORTANT in today’s online society. If your imagery is not up to scratch galleries, customers and followers will pass you by!

Are you struggling to take really good quality photographs of your artwork and can’t afford a DSLR or professional photographer? You are not alone! This workshop is the place for you. Madeline is going to take you through a step-by-step process of how to photograph your artwork. From the very basics like composition and focus all the way through to editing, styling and layout ideas.

You’ll get lots of hands-on, physical practice as well as a discussion and idea swapping with like-minded people.

This class is strictly limited to 6 people per session to maximise your one-on-one time with Madeline. It’s a fantastic opportunity to connect with other artists and creatives and discuss your past success, failures and ideas!
