Birth of the Fake News Photo

Posted by Social Media on 31/07/2018 12:22:32 PM

What's the bigger mess, this image or World Press Photo asks Kenneth Jarecke, see his article in 'Medium'.


'Has photojournalism lost its moral compass, or does it even have one to lose?

Please understand, that I’m writing from my own perspective here and I don’t see myself as a self-appointed spokesperson for the industry. The words here are simply my opinion. Take them or leave them as you will.

It’s an important question to ask, and a complicated one to answer. Does this business have a moral compass, and if so, where has it gone?'

Taylor-Ferne Morris- a photography career growing in leaps & bounds!

Posted by Social Media on 27/07/2018 2:33:50 PM

Who said "there’s no careers in photography?"

PSC graduate, Taylor-Ferne Morris has paved her way into an exciting, niche career as a dance photographer. Combining her two passions for photography and dance has propelled her into becoming a sought after photographer both locally and internationally. We recently caught up with Taylor who has been super busy photographing for the Australian Ballet, in The Studio @ PSC. Between shoots we asked her to share with us her days at PSC and her career highlights!

What got you started in photography?

I began my journey in photography when I was following another life path of classical ballet at The Australian Ballet School (ABS). When I was in my final year I unfortunately injured my hip and could no longer dance. Along with this I received a camera for my 18th birthday and fell in love with taking photos in my spare time, this meant when I was in class unable to dance, I would bring my camera in and take photos of my friends as they danced. This was the moment I fell in love with photography.

PSC Student Awards Showcase Now Showing at Our Southgate Gallery.

Posted by Social Media on 24/07/2018 5:48:52 PM

PSC celebrates another outstanding year of student success at The Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) Victorian Awards 2018.

Each year our final year students from the Bachelor Degree and the part time Advanced Diploma take part in the professional photography, industry awards.The work is submitted as matted prints and are judged anonymously. There are 5 experienced judges that hold a Masters Of Photography status from the AIPP or higher. Each image is submitted into a specific category such as Portrait, Landscape, Illustrative, Commercial, Documentary, Family to name a few. Each category has a specific set of rules and regulations.

Being a print award, the printing is as important as the image itself, fortunately we have Peter Hadzipavlis our resident print master at the Print Shop@PSC who printed the majority of the awards. Having his expertise is not only an education for the students but a valued and important collaboration between the artist and the printer, which will prove invaluable to all the students moving forward.

An example of some of the judging criteria is 'image impact', 'creativity & style', 'composition', 'technical excellence', 'lighting', 'photographic excellence', 'story telling' and more  The 5 judges give a score out of 100 and each of the scores are then averaged to a final score. The awarded score range starts from 80, an 80-84 is a silver award, 85-89 a silver with distinction, 90-94 a gold award (these are far and few between) and a 96-100 is a grand Gold with Distinction, a rarity!
