Cutting My Teeth in Documentary Photography for Human Rights Events With Amnesty

Posted by Social Media on 30/05/2019 5:45:00 PM

Martika Shakoor, PSC Advanced Diploma student, talks about her experience with the PSC/Amnesty International Australia Photographers Network. She is a second-generation Afghan who is specialising in photojournalism and documentary photography. Along with her keen interest in human rights, she was an ideal candidate to be trained by Amnesty International as a volunteer photographer, given photographic briefs and accompany active campaigners to document events. Continuing this year, this initiative aims to provide PSC students with new opportunities to gain experience as working photographers and extend their network.

HOW ENROLLING IN A PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE HAS ENRICHED ONE POLICEMAN'S LIFE

Posted by Mandarine Montgomery on 01/03/2019 5:45:10 PM

We spoke recently to Acting Sergeant Craig Farrell who is studying part time at PSC and wanted to share his experience of what it was like to undertake study as an older student, in a skill completely different to his day job.

Hi Craig, how did you become interested in doing a course at PSC and are you glad you joined?

Yes. 100%. I couldn’t be happier. I have really enjoyed the experience. No regrets whatsoever! I was at a careers expo and got talking to a PSC staff member. She told me about the college and that got me curious as I've always been interested in photography, but for many reasons never pursued it. I decided it was time to stop making excuses, and take my interest further. I was a complete photography novice, but I thought “why not?”, so I threw myself in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What did you get out of it? 

A lot. From a camera skills perspective, a huge amount of

International Photography Tour to Japan September 2018

Posted by Jim on 28/02/2018 6:00:00 PM


It seems that everyone is running ‘photography tours’ to some exotic part of the world!

Given the capacity of relatively light, modern cameras to be transported across the world without exceeding an airline’s restrictive cabin baggage limits, students of photography can readily create a personal narratives of people and places they have visited and the culture of the communities they engage. 

So why travel to Japan with PSC? 

PSC International Photography Tours 

PSC first ran its first photography tour to China in 1986, Egypt and Israel in 1987 and followed this with tours to countries as diverse as Turkey and Vietnam. A subsequent planned tour to Mongolia was cancelled following the SARS epidemic in 2003!

Iran 

It was not until 2016 that PSC again decided to offer a photography tour to interested photographers, students and enthusiasts. We commenced with Iran a country about which there are many preconceptions and very little practical engagement. The small group was led by our Senior Fellow Michael Coyne, the distinguished Australian photojournalist who worked extensively in Iran, and our Bachelor of Photography Convenor for the Art Major Hoda Afshar, an Iranian photographer.
