Pro photographers host workshop in Nelson

Three of the most talented professional photographers in British Columbia will be coming to Nelson to teach a two-day photography workshop

Three of the most talented professional photographers in British Columbia will be coming to Nelson to teach a two-day photography workshop geared towards emerging and professional photographers.

Anna Beaudry, Brent Edwardson, and Michael Moster will travel from Vancouver to present “The Ignite Sessions – Nelson.” The workshop will begin at 10 a.m. on Sunday, June 9 and will cover topics such as lighting, posing, photoshop and business practices.

“It is so exciting to have photographers of this calibre come to Nelson to help our local pros work on their craft” says workshop host Melissa Welsh. “Our photographers do not have the same access to professional development as our city colleagues do, so it is a real treat to not have to travel for an educational opportunity.”

The workshop is sponsored by the Professional Photographers of Canada – BC. Master photographers, committed to making a difference in the photographic industry, volunteer their time to guide emerging photographers towards success. These two-day educational programs refresh fundamental skills, reveal industry standards and instill a sense of confidence and direction in local photographer’s businesses.

Welsh, a Past-President of PPOC-BC, will be hosting the event. The program will run 10 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 9 and 10 to 4 p.m. on Monday, June 10. Registration fee is $169 for non-members and $89 for members.
