As the excitement for our new Masters of Arts - Photography program continues to gain momentum, we decided to learn more about the tutors who will be involved. Kristian Häggblom started working at PSC earlier this year, but has already made a lasting impression on the Bachelor of Photography students he works with.
Today we are featuring final year Advanced Diploma of Photography student Leah Mitchell who is one of our many mature-age students. Leah's work has recently been picked up by Nude by Nature as she continues to experiment with studio lighting and product photography.
Today we are catching up with second year Bachelor of Photography student Kaitlyn Church who recently went to Malaysia's premiere photography festival; Obscura in George Town, Penang. Kaitlyn was also selected as having one of the best projects in the Visual Document class, taught by Alana Holmberg and Bella Capezio.
Our Advanced Diploma of Photography art major students were treated to an artist talk today by Melbourne-based artist Samantha Everton. With incredible attention to detail in her images, Samantha discussed her practice; using a series of hidden wires and support harnesses - every element and movement within her images is captured in-camera.
After almost missing an entry to the national awards, one of our final year Bachelor of Photography students James Bugg has won a silver at the Australian Professional Photography Awards in the landscape category.
With quite a number of PSC students, past and present exhibiting at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale this year, we thought we would take a closer look at their work. Featured today, Friday the 18th of August is stage 2 Advanced Diploma of Photography student Melissa Cachia who will be having a solo exhibition titled 'Frozen Flowers' at The Elephant Patch (location) opening Saturday August 19th at 3pm.
