Learn how to take quality photographs of your artwork for competition entry and self publishing.

Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre and Arts Upper Hunter are joining forces to bring a series of workshops together for artists from the Upper Hunter.

Greg Weight, a well-known and respected photographer, will be in the Upper Hunter for two days conducting workshops for artists on how to photograph their works for electronic submission to web sites, competitions and self-published books.

Greg has photographed artworks for many private and public institutions and artists for an extended period and he will be instructing artists on how to go about achieving an excellent result.

The need for this workshop was amply demonstrated with the submission for the last two art prizes in Muswellbrook, where artist’s submissions were let down, by poor quality images. This may or may have had an impact on the outcome of their submission.

With more and more art prizes now demanding electronic submission, more and more information being communicated electronically around the globe submission to websites and used for the purposes of turning those images to print the timing could not be more pertinent.
