Event description

Description

The Children's Museum is all about combining learning with having FUN!

Photography is a great art form to introduce kids to: it isn’t messy, fantastic results can be achieved from day one, and the results will be treasured for years to come.

Join us for our Kids Camera Club Workshop which will teach your children how to master camera settings, creatively engage with the subject and play with lighting and composition!

Your children will discover what it means to make meaningful and creative photographs while on a nature walk, and the amazing grounds around Canning River Educational Centre (CREEC).

Bring along props, favorite toys, or special objects for portraits, and experiment with aperture and shutter speed to develop a series of photographs such as motion, macro, portrait and landscape.

Visual literacy is incredibly important in our current world. It is our goal to encourage children to look beyond the surface of an image, to understand its context and meaning by getting a chance to develop their own.

This workshop is held on a weekday during school holidays and is suited to ages 6 - 10 years. Class size is a maximum of 15. Of course if you want to send siblings/friends who are just out of the age range, no problem! If you don't mind, we don't, and we can easily tailor things accordingly.

ABOUT THE LECTURER

Cyrus found a vocation in photography in 1994, and even before had been snapping away whenever he could.

During the first 4 years Cyrus exhibited in galleries & cafés and sold to collectors.

The demand in wedding photography, however, focused his energies towards being a wedding specialist and mentor to many new wedding creatives.

In 2008 this culminated in the founding of Emotion Image, a studio made to promote this new pool of talent.

Today Cyrus continues to specialise in weddings and has been nominated in 2008, 2009 and 2010 for Australia’s “Top Wedding Photographers”.

In 2011, Cyrus returned to mainly waterscapes. His new works are full of vibrancy and many depict surreal scenes over long exposures at dawn, dusk and night.

Cyrus has been published in Perth based Artist’s Chronicle, Nationally in Capture Magazine, has had four stories published in the West’s “Inside Cover”, and been interviewed by Todd Johnson on ABC radio.
