North West Telegraph - - North West Lifestyle - Louise Alling­ham

Bud­ding artists are en­cour­aged to join ab­stract pho­tog­ra­pher Me­leah Far­rell and con­tem­po­rary jew­eller Julie Holmes-Reid on FORM’s 2017 Artist Camp Oc­to­ber 20-22. Par­tic­i­pants will learn new cre­ative tech­niques, pro­cesses and skills in the beau­ti­ful sur­rounds of the Dampier Penin­sula. The camp will start on Friday evening at the Court­house Gallery with a talk from Far­rell and an in­tro­duc­tion to ex­per­i­men­tal pho­tog­ra­phy tech­niques in­clud­ing mul­ti­ple ex­po­sure pho­tog­ra­phy and in­ten­tional cam­era move­ment. The artist camp will be Far­rell’s first ven­ture into the Dampier Penin­sula. “I’m re­ally su­per ex­cited about the Bur­rup Penin­sula tour on the Satur­day and it just be­ing an­other land­scape and area to in­spire some new work and in­spire the par­tic­i­pants in cre­at­ing... in­ter­est­ing pho­to­graphs,” she said.

“It’s about look­ing at the world around you with a dif­fer­ent eye, a cre­ative pho­to­graphic eye, so I’m re­ally ex­cited to ex­plore that new land­scape.”

On Satur­day, campers will be able to put Far­rell’s teach­ing into prac­tice as they head to Dampier for two days, kick­ing off with a tour of Mu­ru­juga Na­tional Park guided by Clin­ton Walker of Ngur­rangga Tours.

Over the two days campers can learn and prac­tice ex­per­i­men­tal and un­con­ven­tional pho­tog­ra­phy tech­niques with Far­rell or ex­plore the art of jew­ellery mak­ing in­spired by the land­scape with Holmes-Reid.

The camp costs $250 a per­son for non-mem­bers, $220 for mem­bers and in­cludes par­tic­i­pa­tion in all work­shops, tour and lunches. Visit court­house­gallery.com.au.
