Photocourse 4 meets as a group on Monday evenings, once a month over 10 or so months, with 1:1 tutorial meetings scheduled individually between the group meetings.
PC4 is planned to run during 2024, with one resolution being a group exhibition at Photospace Gallery in 2025.
Two outcomes of the PC4 course:
4 photographers exhibition at Photospace Gallery, June 2015, and
The 2016-2017 PC4 group exhibition 'four' - Aug-Sept 2017
Tutors: James Gilberd & John Williams
Have you done photography courses and are left wondering 'what now?' Had a an idea for a photographic project on the back-burner for a while but not quite sure what to do with it? Or do you have a totally new idea for a photography project and need some guidance and motivation to get it to happen? Photocourse 4 could be the answer.
We are offering the opportunity for intermediate to advanced photographers to work on development of a self-directed project within a small group framework, and with advice and mentoring from James Gilberd and John Williams at Photospace, 37 Courtenay Place, Wellington.
We have run several successful group exhibitions, as well as various solo exhibitions of work produced for Photocourse 4. Your own project may be part of a group exhibition and/or a solo exhibition at Photospace Gallery, or another venue, and/or a photographic book, website, public art installation or other art-based project. It may be a documentary-type photography project, (John's field) or be geared towards development in some aspect of professional photography. Or anything else - it's your call!
The format for PC4 is monthly group meetings to present work in progress and receive constructive feedback from the tutors and the other class members. Between those meetings will be 1:1 or small group sessions with one or two tutors.
We would expect the project development to be fully realised in the timeframe of one year, but longer or shorter projects are optional.
NB. Material and exhibition costs will be extra and the responsibility of the student. (Photospace Gallery does not charge a hire-fee.) Course fee covers tuition only.
Course numbers: limited to 4 students.
