Tutors: James Gilberd & John Williams
PC4 will begin on Monday 8th October 2018, with the aim of a group exhibition in September-October 2019.
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.
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
Done a photography course and 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? Have some negatives tucked away somewhere or some images backed-up to a hard drive and wonder what to to with them? 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 group framework, and with advice and mentoring from James Gilberd and John Williams at Photospace, 37 Courtenay Place, Wellington.
In the past we have run several successful group exhibitions, as well as various solo exhibitions of work produced for PC4. 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 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 will be considered.
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: ideally 4-6 participants.
