#236 Photography for Communications Professionals

It’s been a busy week and one of the highlights has been the course Photography for Communications Professionals.

The Course

Harry leads a focused, interesting, extremely helpful workshop – I got what I came for.

The course is designed for those working in a significant communications department who need to work with photography as one aspect of their work. Participants included staff from many communications departments who have been asked to take photos at meetings, events or of keynote speakers, executives and staff. That’s tough work!

The Session

The exercises closely connected to my work…

The session was held at the beautiful National Gallery in central Ottawa and mixed classroom theory, practical photography, networking and discussions on photo ideas and issues around photography for communications departments:

  • consent forms
  • licensing photography
  • archiving imagery
  • negotiating with a photographer
  • usage rights and copyright

The Results

The group was fun! The exercises were challenging. The results were excellent:

  • I have never had photos that were sooooo great!!!! Thank you a thousand times. I’m going through the photos from yesterday’s workshop and I am amazed at myself (and trying to stay humble at the same time)…
  • Very informative and well worth the time and cost.

Nice work, people!

The next session of Photography for Communications Professionals is set for Wednesday November 4th, 2009.
