Self-Portraiture/Portraiture Workshop with Anne Moffat & Clare Steele

Presented by CCP in partnership with Hillvale

Self-Portraiture/Portraiture Workshop
24th June 10-1pm

Presented by CCP in partnership with Hillvale.

Join experienced photographers Clare Steele and Anne Moffatt for a three-hour workshop to explore photographic portraiture and self-portraiture.

Using plastic disposable cameras and 35mm colour analogue film, participants will produce a series of portraits and self-portraits inspired by the work of Pixy Liao (currently on show at CCP), and the work of our two workshop leaders Anne Moffat and Clare Steele. Thanks to our partners Hillvale, each participant will be given a 35mm disposable camera to shoot on for the workshop. These cameras will be returned at the end of the day and processed by Hillvale.

Each participant will receive an additional 35mm disposable camera to take home with them at the conclusion of the workshop. Participants will have their work exhibited (on screen) for two days at the CCP (July 8th and 9th), and featured on CCP social media.

Workshop fee includes one Hillvale disposable camera to use during the workshop (inc. processing and files provided via email following the workshop); and an additional Hillvale disposable camera to take home at the end of the workshop.

Please note: Given the topic of the workshop – Self-Portraiture/Portraiture – participants may be photographing themselves and each other. Participants will need to be comfortable being photographed and photographing others.

Limited spaces available.

Tickets $110 (CCP members get a 10% discount)
As we pay all our workshop leaders for their time we cannot accept cancellations/refunds within 72 hours of the event.
