PETER BLACK & James Gilberd Photography Workshop - AUCKLAND
Getting inspiration: developing a body of work
Hosted by PhotoForum NZ, this special photography workshop with Documentary Photographer Peter Black & Photospace Gallery Director James Gilberd, runs over the weekend of 3rd-4th Nov. 2012 in Parnell, Auckland.
The aim of this workshop is to learn how to produce a body of work that is capable of being exhibited or made into a book, working in black & white or in colour. The proposed schedule for this workshop can be viewed HERE
- Exhibiting - approaching & working with a gallery, developing a project, artist statements, marketing & publicity, editioning prints, pricing works
- The Print - printing for exhibition, quality, presentation, signing works, hanging an exhibition
- The Photographic Book - photo book production, processes of design, editing, sequencing etc
This workshop will appeal to photographers who photograph the real world including people, buildings and landscape (rather than studio work). Time will be spent discussing your individual work, both past and present. The main aim is to gain inspiration.
The workshop is limited to twelve people, so one-to-one attention can be given. A big part of the benefit of such a workshop is being involved with a small group of like-minded photographers; the energy and focus that it brings, and the added social benefits.
The cost of this two day workshop is $460 (a deposit of $100 is required to reserve your place). BOOK EARLY as places are strictly limited.

Peter Black’s photographs have been recognised in significant public exhibitions and publications for over thirty years. He was the first New Zealand photographer to have a solo show at the National Art Gallery – Fifty Photographs, 1980. His work is in most major public collections in New Zealand and many significant private collections. For many decades Peter developed his own black and white film and made his own silver gelatin prints. Since 2005, he has been working exclusively in colour and printing his own archival pigment prints. His new book I loved you the moment I saw you (Victoria Unity Press, 2011) is a series of 82 colour photos shot (mostly) in Wellington in 2009.
James Gilberd opened Photospace Gallery, Wellington, in 1998 and has been a professional photographer since the early 1990s. He has a degree in photography from Victoria University, 1997 and has been actively photographing, teaching photography, curating exhibitions and running the gallery over several decades. In 2008, he edited and co-published the book Fiat Lux - 51 photographs by Andrew Ross (Photospace & VUP).
