Photography camera workshop Wellington

 

So many people tell me they have a fancy camera but don't use it because they don't really know how to

Are you one of those people?

If so I decided to do something about it and created this action packed one-day in-person workshop just for you

DO YOU?

Want to take stunning photos of your kids, artistic portraits, dramatic landscapes, insightful compositions or tell meaningful stories with your images? 

Still use your phone because you haven't worked out how to use your camera properly yet?

Use your camera only in Auto or Program?

Then this Photography Workshop is for you!

"Thank you so much for the amazing workshop.  It was so much fun I loved it. I was a bit worried at first because I found all those buttons (on my camera) so confusing.  But I learned so much and the penny dropped and my photos are streaks ahead already".  Lucia

Hi I'm Celia

I'm a full time professional photographer specialising in dance, performing arts, portraiture, weddings, headshots and personal branding - all about people. 

I come from a family of professional photographers and have photographed all my life. I'm honoured to have photographed many of the worlds greats dance companies and am one of the approved photographers for the Royal New Zealand Ballet. 

I have a Master of Fine Arts and my artwork centres on collaborations with dancers and choreographers and the relationship between still and moving images.

My work is represented by the Eade Gallery in Clyde and I'll exhibit again at the Across the Bridge Arts Festival exhibition Friday 24 to Sunday 26 Sept 2021.
