Photography course with Michael Wildman | For artists

This is an opportunity for all artists who struggle to photograph their own work to a reasonably professional  standard, kindly shared by Trina from the fifth floor.

Michael Wildman is a professional photographer who exhibits his work internationally, (he is also one of Studio 518’s models along with his partner, Carolina.)  He  is currently holding photography courses in St Margaret’s House.
An idea in progress….

While Trina was bending his ear about one of her current photography problems, they decided that there may be more of us who would like an hour of Michael’s time (£20.00 per hour).

He thinks an hour for basic information, lighting and camera, this would be using your own camera.

So far we have a diverse crowd , fabric designers, costume makers, oil painters, watercolourist, charcoal on paper artists, you get the idea.  All of us with our own particular problem to solve.  We would like to build the numbers up to a course size, anyone else interested?


The course would be held in Studio 5.18. Future dates and details to be worked on, but a show of emails would be the start.


Get in touch with either Trina (trinabohan@tyrie.net) or Michael (michaelwildman232@hotmail.com)
