LUXE learn has been set up to respond to the current demand for learning new skills from cooking, through metalwork, gardening which don't involve sitting in front of a screen all day.
Many existing courses take a traditional view, presenting photography as it was in the 20th century. Most work is no longer printed on paper and is ever more ephemeral. Today's image rapidly replaced by tomorrow's. These workshops are designed to help you create images that stand out and also for you to identify your signature style and develop a consistent look and feel across your work.
Peter Collie is a photographer with over 10 years experience shooting campaigns for major brands.
Now instead of shooting for magazines and billboards his clients are shooting for social media and e-commerce. The images are smaller and viewed quickly so actually need more impact as we spend less time on each image unless it has initial impact and interesting details as a second level.
Peter has given masterclasses in lighting, camera use, software and workflow for brands like Olympus, Apple, HeadOn and many more.
He has also written several TAFE courses on 'How to Interpret a design Brief' for Open Colleges and is a casual lecturer at Billy Blue College of Design.
