Based in the photography block at West Kent College’s Brook Street Campus, you will have access to the full range of the college’s facilities including:

  • Large purpose built studio

  • Studio lighting

  • Mac Suite with the full range of Adobe products including Lightroom and Photoshop

  • Large format printers (up to A2)

  • Closeup and macro photography equipment

  • Learning resource centre and library

In addition to the evening sessions, I will be organising a gallery trip to London during the term.

The cost for the 12 weekly classes is £189.00 but there may be additional cost for materials and hire of models etc.

The masterclass is for experienced, creative photographers who are comfortable with using their basic techniques and are looking to explore photography in more depth, explore different photographic techniques and work on projects currently outside their comfort zone.

Seamus Ryan, who is an internationally recognised photographer and teacher will be working with me to teach the masterclass. Seamus is well known for his creative and innovative close-up and still life work. An example of his work is currently showing in the Atlas Gallery in London, alongside work by Ansel Adams and Edward Weston

Topics covered will include:

  • Using Studio Lighting

  • Taking Portraits in the Studio (and out)

  • Alternative Processes

  • Using Flash for High Speed Photography

  • Close-up and Macro Techniques

  • Image Processing and Digital Printing

    We have access to all of the facilities that the West Kent College photography department has to offer, which will allow you to get involved in areas such as studio work, digital imaging and alternative processes such as Cyanotype using digital negatives and film photography.

The focus will be on developing your own personal projects for exhibition and publication.
