About the Event

Having good documentation of your work is a very important component in any visual artist & maker's practise.

Whether it's for your website, social media, marketing, record keeping, or all of the above, having clear, accurate and informative visual representations of your work will help enhance the intentions and stories which you are trying to share with your audience.

During this 2 hour workshop, Mari will take you through the basics of artwork + product photography – from setting up, equipment, lighting, troubleshooting, and styling concepts. Learn some simple and useful pointers to improve your images, along with some DIY solutions for those who are budget conscious and just starting out.

What to bring:

  • Camera (mobile phone, DSLR, etc.)
  • Tripod (if you own one)
  • Remote shutter release (if you own one)
  • Notepad and pen
