The Delta Photo Club presents a two-part workshop that provides an introduction to digital photography by long-time member and acclaimed photographer Francois Cleroux.
The sessions will touch on the basics of exposures and composition as Cleroux provides participants with the skills they’ll need to become better photographers.
The classes are meant as a basic introduction for beginner photographers or as a refresher for those who wish to review the basics.
Guests are welcome for $15/class or $25 for the two, payable at the door. Classes are free for members in good standing of the Delta Photo Club.
The classes will take place from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at KinVillage in Tsawwassen on Wednesday, Sept. 25 and Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Cleroux has been practicing photography since he was in the Grade 8. His images have been published in magazines in Europe, India and North America and on the cover of Popular Photography magazine and Photo magazine. He has exhibited works in Canada, the U.S. and India and has taught in Europe and the U.S.
Cleroux loves creating images from very simple minimalist works to very large complex installations. Although most of his artistic projects are personal and not shared, he has created “tabulaRASA”, a photographic artists’ collective, which helps other artists create, cultivate and refine their work and projects.
In recent years he has pursued his passion for street photography. He established www.StreetsIHaveWalked.comto promote street photography in the Vancouver area and offers a free self-paced street photography class. He created the StreetsIHaveWalked Facebook group.
Cleroux has also started an online photographic artists’ mentorship program. He teaches at most clubs throughout the Lower Mainland as well as classes and workshops at his home, including a two-hour composition class and a two-day composition workshop. See more at: www.NorthernExposures.com.
