Help­ing cre­atives thrive

The Australian Education Reporter - - VIDEO PRODUCTION -

FOR more than 40 years Sun­stu­dios has sup­ported imag­ing pro­fes­sion­als, from broad­cast tele­vi­sion cre­atives to Aus­tralia’s lead­ing por­trait, fash­ion and com­mer­cial pho­tog­ra­phers.

Fo­cused on nur­tur­ing the next gen­er­a­tion, the bustling creative hub works closely with ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tors, pro­vid­ing cam­era and light­ing equip­ment at no charge and cur­ricu­lum-re­lated teacher train­ing and course con­tent de­vel­op­ment.

“We’re here to help cre­atives thrive and it’s our peo­ple that make the dif­fer­ence,” Sun­stu­dios gen­eral man­ager Alan Brightman said.

The com­pany’s staff in­cludes work­ing pho­tog­ra­phers, tech­ni­cal ex­perts fa­mil­iar with imag­ing work­flows, and in-house Canon and Bron­color ser­vice tech­ni­cians.

“Un­der­stand­ing our clients al­lows us to de­liver a com­plete of­fer­ing from stu­dios, equip­ment rental and sales through to con­sul­tancy, ex­hi­bi­tion print­ing and in­stal­la­tion,” he said.

The breadth of tal­ent and depth of ex­pe­ri­ences on of­fer has seen Sun­stu­dios ex­pand to form­ing part­ner­ships with secondary schools to cre­ate the right ex­pe­ri­ence for the stu­dents.

“We re­cently helped ar­range a pho­to­graphic com­pe­ti­tion for stu­dents at For­est High School,” said Mr Brightman.

“The en­tries were judged by lead­ing pro­fes­sion­als, with a live cri­tique ses­sion here at Sun­stu­dios.

“We wanted to pro­vide an ex­pe­ri­ence so, while the win­ner re­ceived a valu­able gear prize, the highlight was a work ex­pe­ri­ence place­ment with us and com­pli­men­tary res­i­dency at the Tree­house, our award-win­ning col­lab­o­ra­tive work space,” he said.

“The stu­dents loved the ex­pe­ri­ence and they also got an op­por­tu­nity to see real photo and video shoots in ac­tion and to view a cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tion on dis­play. We’ll def­i­nitely do more.”
