Spring StudiosHalf Term Week

With photographer Debbi Clark and editor David Barton

This was a photography workshop produced over HALF TERM and was a workshop sponsored by SPRING STUDIOS, giving us exclusive use at their studios, providing lighting, flash lighting and giving us access to their fantastic studios for this course. We created a model board for all our young people taking part in this project, creating a model agency style board to tutor our young photographers in directing, lighting, art direction, portraits, fashion photography, commercial style photography. We produced images, collaborating together as a young community project, evolving and mentoring our young people to develop their skills and giving them opportunities.

This project was a chance to see how the professionals work in the eclectic fashion/editorial world of Fashion. We gave our young people the insight of how they can style and create a look for their own fashion shoot. We created a fashion set and shot ideas with photographer DEBBI CLARK giving support to our young people using the OLYMPUS EPL-8 cameras. One of London’s top MUA’s came to us at HVH ARTS to teach our young people a fantastic workshop in the art of make-up!

Young people learnt how to master a street photography setting to produce quality photography.

Queens CrescentShort Film Documentary

Our young people wrote, filmed and presented a short documentary on Queens Crescent, supported by funding from BGC CHARITY DAY. RANKIN studios came along and donated their time, their professionals editing and teaching our young people the art of making a short film. This documentary was produced using our EPL-8 cameras sponsored by Olympus and the support of RANKIN studios and Debbi Clark Photography, all of whom donated a week of their time for free to support this project giving our young people an insight into the world of film making. Without the support of all of our sponsors on this project, this would not have been possible. Thank you, Olympus, RANKIN studios, BGC CHARITY DAY, Debbi Clark Photographer and Sam Sure.
