Photography: History in Focus
9am - 4pm on July 15 and 10am - 5pm on July 16
Spend two exciting days with your skilled instructor, Gary Weekes, learning how to improve your portrait, landscape and general photographic skills while stepping back into history. The workshop will take place at the NB College of Craft and Design located within the Historic Garrison District, in downtown Fredericton AND at Kings Landing Historical Settlement, nestled in a majestic setting along the St. John River Valley, just 20 minutes from downtown Fredericton.
Day one will encompass classroom lectures and on-location photography where you will better your technique, all within the Historic Garrison District. Day two will consist of putting these new found talents to work as you spend the day viewing and shooting Kings Landing Historical Settlement from a fresh angle.
