Photography Scotland’s Season of Photography:
01 September – 30 November

Open Call | CONTACT: Stills School for 16-25yr olds

CONTACT is an introductory photography course that will teach you basic photography skills as well as encourage you to develop your own projects. Whether you prefer darkrooms, digital or moving image we’ll make sure you feel confident using your new skills.

During CONTACT you will have the option to develop skills in the following areas:
– Camera handling skills (digital and analogue)
– Film-processing and darkroom printing
– Experimental processes
– Digital post production with Photoshop

In a small group you will learn about different photographers and be supported to find your own style. All materials and equipment are provided.

Stills offers the Bronze Arts Award with Contact, verified by Trinity College London so there is the option to get accreditation with the course.

The school is free and travel expenses can be reimbursed.
