Dr Les Walkling: On Landscape Photography
Les Walkling's On Landscape Photography masterclass is a rare opportunity to receive specialist instruction from one of Australia's leading landscape photographers and most prominent photographic educators. The Master Class also coincides with the National Library of Australia’s Peter Dombrovskis exhibition and accompanying publication ‘The Photography of Peter Dombrovskis: Journeys into the Wild’. Les spent ten months in the preparation and restoration of over 200 of Peter’s images for the NLA publication and exhibition, and his preparation, editing and exhibition printing of Peter’s work along with an analysis of Peter’s camera craft and technique will be a unique workshop highlight.
