DPC Fine-Art / Intermediate Photography Course Exhibition

By | 12 February, 2013|Advanced Photography Aspects, Featured Photographers, Fine Art Photography|

What John, The Mentor & Chief Lecturer for the Fine-Art Photography Course had to say: Danie and I had been discussing the development of an Intermediate Photography Course for some time. We had discussed what it would include and how it should be presented, then out of the blue one day he said it should focus on, and be centered around, the concept of fine art photography. My initial reaction was one of panic and scepticism, I mean does anyone anywhere actually know what fine art really is? I went off and did masses of research to create the material, we had long debates, more research and reworked the material again and again. Eventually low and behold we had a definition and understanding of the concepts we were trying to communicate which I am really proud of. I believe we are now better able to communicate through our course the principles of fine art photography and creativity than most content on the subject available anywhere.
