We are excited to announce the launch of a new weekly photography course in partnership with Stills: Centre for Photography, running for a total of nine weeks this summer.
The Stills Photography Course is split between four tutor-led sessions in the Stills’ learning space – covering using a camera or phone to take photos, developing photos in the darkroom, photo editing, studio photography and portraits, and more – plus five trips, which kicked off with the beautiful Dean Village and the nearby Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (One and Two), pictured.
The aim for the course is to teach photography skills, while improving student wellbeing and reducing isolation through participants involvement in group photographic trips in and around Edinburgh.
The course is coordinated by Access to Industry Caseworker, Helen Murray, in collaboration with the Creative Learning Manager at Stills, Emma Black.
Emma Black, Stills’ Creative Learning Manager, says:
“Working with Access to Industry and receiving Awards for All funding from National Lottery Community Fund has brought brightness when much needed. This project has been in the making for some time, staff and students have worked alongside each other to design this project and make this happen. We have spent time together considering and discussing how photography can be used for both wellbeing and skills building, and we have produced something unique, which we hope will be the start of a long-lasting partnership between Stills and Access to Industry.”
