GUEST SPEAKER : Meredith Schofield “How to tell a visual story” @ Figtree Heights Primary School
Aug 13 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Meredith says : …

The purpose of photography is to tell a story, create mood and evoke a feeling or emotion.  We do this with interesting subject matter, light and composition.  When these elements combine, we create work that captures people’s imagination, tells authentic stories and invites the viewer into our world.  We do this with integrity, agency and with a creative eye.
