Assistance with your cameras/devices/phones will be provided. The workshop is open to all levels, age and backgrounds. Equipment not supplied (please bring a camera or phone).

The workshop will be led by Alex Nicholson. Alex Nicholson is a wirra based Photographer. ‘Always an image maker, I have been producing them for over 16 years, Be it traditionally on film or digitally and all the wonderful forms in-between. I have fed this passion with travel, subcultures and my life, combined they all feed one another. I have been lucky enough to work within the photographic industry, both as an assistant and a photographer. Learning from photographers, friends and peers I am now ready to follow my own path with projects close to my heart.  ‘
