Really excited to announce that I will be doing my first Online Mobile Photography Workshop in conjunction with the Gallery of Photography in Dublin next Saturday, April 25th at 4 p.m. (note time change)
There had been a workshop planned for Saturday the 25th in the gallery, but with Ireland being in lockdown, there is no way it could have gone ahead. Instead when the gallery asked me if I could do something online, I thought it would be a great opportunity to do something good and I suggested we run the workshop for the Irish Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Children, who really need help at this moment.
We may feel that we are stuck at home at the moment with the restrictions in place, but are we really? We can stay up and get up as late as we want, throw ourselves on the sofa and binge on boxsets, chat endlessly online with friends and family, eat our favourite food, have a few drinks, and when we want, we can slip outside to do a little exercise within the 2km radius. However, for some these restrictions actually do mean being stuck. Many children find themselves in scary situations at the moment stuck in homes suffering abuse in different forms. For them, this lockdown is a nightmare.
So, this online workshop is an opportunity to get creative at home and train your photographic eye as you learn how to get the most from your smartphone. I will show you some tips and tricks to improve your photography and to have fun shooting in and around your house. And some great news – I am really pleased that my friends in Huawei have offered a prize of their fabulous Watch GT2 (valued at €220) for the best photograph posted after the workshop.

Looking forward to seeing you next week.
