Professional Development Series for Artists

 Laara CermanHow to Photograph Your Artwork

Thursday, May 31, 10 a.m.–12 p.m.

Do you have amazing artwork but poor photo-documentation of it? Do you suffer from website shame because the images of your work and yourself are not up to scratch? This workshop was made for you! Give your hard work the respect it deserves with high quality shots of your art installed and looking its very best. Your website, social media and future show applications will thank you for it!

Presenter: Laara Cerman. Laara's work explores the intersection of art, science, history and the themes of impermanence, a return to nature, and the fragility of life. She creates her photographs by capturing multiple digital images and then pieces them together in post-production, a skill she has mastered through working as a freelance retoucher in the commercial photography industry. She is currently focused on documenting the wild plants of British Columbia for one of her more recent series “Codex Pacificus”. 

Cost: $25 (includes refreshments). Register at 604-925-7270 (course #44117) or online.
