In the midst of our end of year presentations and exhibitions, PSC has added an exciting element to the journey of our students as they embark upon a new chapter. Louise Clements, the co-founder / curator of FORMAT Festival is coming to town for our next Image Makers Seminar on the 27th of November. All tickets are free, but you are required to book your seat by going to our Eventbrite Page. In addition to this, we will be giving our students, alumni and guests a chance to get their folios reviewed by her!
Louise’s folio reviews will be taking place on Tuesday 24th – Wednesday 25th of November from 10am-5pm. We are offering portfolio reviews (30 mins each) to current students, alumni – and as a special treat we are offering THREE free review sessions to photographers from outside the PSC community. Unfortunately, not all students, alumni, & guests who contact us are guaranteed a spot. You may nominate a preferred time but it will not be possible to give everyone their preferred time.
