Our annual IWDIG Photowalk as planned to coincide with the bicentenary celebrations of Julia, now celebrated as a pioneering portraitist will take place around Freshwater Bay. As always, the event is free to attend.
Professional photographer and photographic trainer Gary Early from STUDIO f56 is pleased to be supporting this year’s Freshwater Live event.
Gary will be offering a walk-in studio day at Dimbola Museum & Galleries, on Saturday 22nd August, where he will be available to answer your photo related questions. You can try out the studio or if you think you’d like to be a model you can have a mini-photoshoot and view the results.
Further photographic information can be found on this website or you can view some of Gary’s work here www.studiof56.com
Please drop-in on Saturday 22nd August between 10:00am and 4:00pm, we are looking forward to meeting you.
Weather permitting this years IWDIG nature walk will take place on Saturday 4th of July at Shide Chalk-pit. Photographers with an interest can meet Walk Leader Colin Haygarth at the entrance at 10.00 am.
Colin says: We are hoping to photograph wild orchids, butterflies and moths, the rare Marsh Helleborine Orchid is in flower at the moment in the chalk-pit and it will be worth coming along just to photograph this lovely flower, there are 3 orchids in flower at the moment and I am sure we will find other things to photograph as well.
