Award-winning portrait photographer shares his knowledge

About the event

Join pro photographer Ilan Wittenberg for a three hour seminar on documentary portrait photography to coincide with his Faces of Cairo exhibition at Studio One Toi Tū in Auckland.

Wittenberg is NZIPP 2020 Auckland Photographer of the Year and won the editorial category at the 2020 Alpha Awards.

At this event Wittenberg will discuss his travel photography from CairoJerusalem and Morocco. Participants will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions regarding camera technique, equipment, software, post processing, creating a portfolio, exhibiting and entering awards. Wittenberg will also talk about how to engage people in a foreign country when asking to create their portrait and how to use photos for storytelling. 

You will also be able to try different printing papers courtesy of Epson who will have an A3-A2 size photo printer available for us. You are welcome to bring your favourite 2-3 images on a USB or an SD card (JPEG format) so these can be printed during the seminar. Bring an empty cardboard tube so your print will travel home safely.
