James Bugg, 2017

 

What got you started in photography?

I had an interest ever since I was introduced to my father’s camera kit, my interest grew throughout high school and then I was just hooked.

When you first started at PSC did you have an idea of the photographer you wanted to be?
I always knew the kind of work I liked and was drawn to, however when I started at PSC  the photographer I wanted to become was different to the one I am now. PSC refined the vision I had for myself and my knowledge and inspirations broadened. I guess ultimately I hope the photographer I want to become constantly evolves and changes with time.
What has PSC taught you?
PSC has taught me so much, from technical aspects to information about the industry, It has really expanded my photographic knowledge. However the most beneficial thing PSC has given me is constant inspiration from the staff to push myself and my thinking.
What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment I am working on a project called “The Pines” which documents a small town in Melbourne’s south-east. The town, once a pine plantation is now a community struggling to get by. A prevalent culture of drugs, violence and socioeconomic status cause harsh realities to be prominent. The work deals with ideas of escapism and struggling Australian sub culture and will be presented in book form at the end of the year. See Work In Progress 
What do you do when you are not taking photos?
When I’m not taking photos I like to play music or get outside and go camping. I’m normally taking photos though, or looking at them at least.
Do you have a dream job/shoot? 
Not really, my dream clients would be Time, The New York Times and The Guardian, as well as publications such as Aint-Bad and British Journal of Photography.

Feature Friday 25th August 2017; Anne McCallum

Our feature story today is on Advanced Diploma of Photography student Anne McCallum who journeyed to Zambia in June to help promote conservation of wildlife. We sat down with Anne to speak about her experience.

Anne McCallum, 2017

How did you come to be involved in this trip?
Last year, my daughter and her friend came up with the idea to head to Zambia to make a short film about the Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust (CWET). My daughter’s friend had been to Zambia with a school group about 4 years ago and was telling my daughter about the experience. This organisation runs groups within schools and into the communities promoting conservation.
I became involved when my daughter got a job in Iceland and couldn’t get time off to go to Zambia. The girls asked me if I would like to be involved and be part of the team.
Can you tell us about your experience?
What an amazing experience!   This was my first trip to Zambia, actually my first trip to Africa!  We travelled to a town called Mfuwe, which is right on the edge of the South Luangwa National Park.  This is one of the best National parks in Africa as it always has water – there are several natural springs, so the animals can live there all year round without having to do massive migrations to follow water.    Consequently there is a huge range and population of many animals species. Due to this there is a blossoming tourist industry which creates employment for the local people, however this leads to the need for education about caring for their environment and living sustainably (to keep the animals safe and encourage eco-friendly tourism). This is where CWET comes into play with their education and community programmes. The aim of the video is to show CWET at work and the importance of their contribution.
Some of the best moments while in Zambia, included the opportunity to actually go on drives into the National Park and see the animals in their natural environment. My biggest thrill would have to be seeing 3 leopards in one morning. We also had the joy of seeing giraffes and elephants just wandering by the side of the road, and one night we actually had a hippo in the garden of our lodge. Of course there are lots of vervet monkeys and baboons, if you happen to leave your room door unlocked they do like to get in and investigate everything. There is a now a monkey roaming around with a nice tinted moisturiser – not sure if it is the right colour for her.

Anne McCallum, 2017

What was it like getting an insight into the local culture? 
The local people are absolutely charming and so welcoming and the children extremely adorable and happy. Education is considered very important, but it is not always easy as both uniform and books have to be paid for and they are not always affordable. Another problem is that the children cannot move to the next grade without completing the current one. Some years they can’t afford to go to school so the classes end up being multi age groups which they all find quite acceptable and normal. Any student wishing to further their studies can’t do so without sponsorship.
In reflecting on your trip since you arrived back home, have you noticed a change in your perception? 
This was an amazing opportunity for me and I feel that I have gained insight into their community. I think the biggest question is how do we as a developed nation help a developing nation to develop, without making all the mistakes that we have made?? How can they skip the pollution problems, the diet and health problems and the conservation problems?
We hope that our video and photographs will help provide an insight into this community and maybe help solve some of the problems.
I would definitely love to be involved in other projects along this line!

Feature Friday 4th August 2017; Kadek Thatcher

For Friday August 4th, we are featuring final year Advanced Diploma Photojournalist major Kadek Thatcher.

Kadek Thatcher

How did you get into photography?
Well I originally wanted to be an actress but mum told me I wasn’t going to step out of high school and be in Hollywood, so I picked up the camera in year 10 and have never looked back.
Did you have any plans of what sort of photography you wanted to get into? 
When I started I knew I needed to learn my camera and the basics of photography back to front before I really thought about what I wanted to do but also always knew I wanted to do sport photography particularly AFL.
What is the most beneficial thing you have learned in your time at PSC?
Probably networking and experience are definitely the main things I have learnt in life and photography. As well as do something that you love and not what someone else would want you to do.
Have you had any challenging moments? 
My most challenging moment would be stepping out of my comfort zone. I am not one to go well with directing people when doing studio shoots but have learnt a lot through the past 3 years at PSC to overcome and be the master of the camera.
What about rewarding moments?
 Most rewarding moment would be seeing my photography improve each time I shoot. Knowing that I have come so far since starting has been amazing to see.

Kadek Thatcher

Have you noticed a development in your style of shooting?
Well before PSC I didn’t really do much sport and I used Auto, which let’s just say was not a proud moment. Now using Manual, and over the years at PSC I have seen that through shooting each week for footy, I try to be different and capture moments that people may miss in the games as well as trying to make them look different and stand out from the usual footy photos you see. I am still learning and experimenting each week.

Do you have a body of work you are most proud of?
Can I say my football photos? All of them. Especially really starting to get into it last year and being able to volunteer with AFL Victoria and seeing my work out there makes me so proud. But also getting to shoot the first season of TAC Cup Girls was a proud moment to be a part of that history making competition.
Are you working on anything right now?
At the moment, I am photographing each weekend for AFL Victoria, shooting VFL and VFLW.
What do you do when you’re not taking photos?
Literally shooting every weekend but pretty much going to the AFL. I am a massive Hawthorn supporter, watching Netflix like any student would be and hanging out with my two dogs.
Where do you find your motivation?
 I find my motivation with seeing my work being out there on the AFL Victoria website or VFL website and their social media pages. Knowing that my work is out there makes me feel motivated to know where I could be in the next few years.
Who/what inspires you?
I am inspired by everyone in my class everyday. Seeing their work being improved from 1st year to now is amazing. As well as AFL Photographers, I absolutely love seeing their photos each week from the weekend’s games. Also my mentor Darrian Traynor, a past student of PSC; his work in AFL/Sport and Photojournalism is why I wanted him as my mentor.
What is your dream job/shoot?
My dream is to be working for the AFL as a photographer and even for an AFL club as a photographer for them. That is the main goal for me.

Feature Friday 28th July 2017: Kayla De Saint Aromain

Friday July 28th is featuring Advanced Diploma of Photography student Kayla De Saint Aromain.

Kayla De Saint Aromain

What got you started in Photography? 
 I got started early high school after participating in an end-of-year activity where I quickly fell in love!
When you started at PSC, did you have an idea of the kind of photographer you want to become?
Initially I wanted to work with nature, maybe a National Geographic photographer! That’s totally changed haha
What is the most beneficial thing you have learned?
I’ve learned how to live my dreams
What has been the most challenging moment at PSC so far?
Deadlines and essays are always challenging for me. Recently, entering the VPPYs and finding a mentor was very difficult!
How has your style developed?
I’ve learned a lot about myself and my art, which I really value. Everything has changed for the better! I feel like I can see now! My style has become more purposeful and an actual style is developing.
So far, what body of work have you been most proud of’?
My last folio, about toxisity in the makeup industry, is probably the work im most proud of. It’s still not something I’m super proud of, but as a body of work it’s had the most success.

Kayla De Saint Aromain

What are you working on at the moment? 
I’m currently working on my folio, about the use and positive effect of tarot. I’m really honing my skills and style on this one so I’m really enjoying it.
What do you do when you’re not taking photos?
In my spare time, if I’m not watching dribble on the tv, I like to sew costumes and my own clothes.
Where do you find your motivation?
Currently, deadlines are a pretty solid motavation. But I find it easiest to do work when I have a clear idea of what I’m doing. Rethinking about my passion and dreams really helps too.
Who/what inspires you?
Francesca Woodman, Sarah Moon and Bill Henson are huge inspirations for my current work.
What is your dream job?
My dream job is to be working on the streets of Japan, shooting street fashion. But I’d also love to be able to embrace personal work and hold exhibitions!

Feature Friday 21st July 2017: Noah Thompson

The July 21st Feature Friday is a quick insight of second year bachelor student Noah Thompson. Earlier this year Noah was a finalist in the National portrait prize, he was involved in an exhibition at the Melbourne Immigration Museum titled “They Cannot Take The Sky” which was made into a book. Noah was also successful in receiving the Maribyrnong City Council art grant that allowed him to have a solo exhibition at the Trocadero Art Space in Footscray and put his work”Footscray Hair” into a book.

 

We had a chat with the busy artist and learned about where he is now and where he wants to be as he prepares for his fourth semester at PSC.

 

Noah Thompson, 2017, ‘Footscray Hair’

 

Why did you choose photography?
I moved around quite a bit growing up, going from Tasmania to remote parts of the Northern Territory to living overseas for a couple of years, I think this gives anyone impressions of places and people that are hard to articulate with words. Which I think is what photography allows me to do, though I’ve only realised this recently. I also like people and am interested in their stories and how individual circumstance often relates to wider social, environmental, economic or political situation. I completed a BA in International Studies which involved studying sociology, international development, conflict studies, etc. It has always been my intention to combine these two interests.
Where do you want to go with photography?
I want to get involved with photojournalism and NGO work as well as work on longer-term documentary projects. At the moment I’m interested in exploring a wide variety of subjects relating to social justice, war, migration, economics, refugees and community. I think photography is an important tool in generating discussion around difficult, controversial or important issues and also invaluable in disseminating untold aspects of a given issue.
Who/what inspires you?
Kind people, my mum.
What do you enjoy about photography?
I like that it gets me out and about, talking to people, asking questions, out of my comfort zone.

Feature Friday 14th July; Natalie Renee Vicari

Today, July 14th, we are featuring second year bachelor student Natalie Renee Vicari.

Natalie Vicari

What got you started in photography?
I had always really liked photography over other artistic mediums, but I didn’t get started photographing until I was 18 and got given my cousin’s old camera for my 18th.
When you started at PSC, did you have an idea of the kind of photographer you want to become?
I had a pretty broad idea of what kind of photography I wanted to do: mostly commercial-based stuff, like working for magazines. But after having many guest speakers in our first year, documentary photography, more specifically war journalism or political protests documentation has sparked an interest in me too.
What is the most beneficial thing you have learned up to this point?
Honestly, learning how to actually use my camera properly. Since my third week back in first year at PSC, I’ve been using manual mode and have never touched the preset modes on my camera. The difference is astronomical. On a more serious note, I also learned that art is quite subjective and forgiving, as anything can be turned into an art project now if you can explain yourself eloquently and put in the effort.
What has been your most challenging moment at PSC so far?
Getting a grasp on the digital and editing aspect of photography and understanding what the different functions in Lightroom can do to an image, and pretty much everything I have learned in Photoshop.
What has been your most rewarding moment at PSC so far?
This year having the freedom to do a folio on any topic I choose, and having that creative freedom now, as opposed to last year, when I have a much better understanding of the medium and the ways in which I can manipulate it to speak my language.
How has your style developed? What have you noticed is different? Your aesthetic? Way of thinking? Approach?
I now try to think of multiple ways to visually portray what I want to say, and attempt all of those ways instead of just picking the most obvious, or the easiest of the options. I also feel as though I am a lot more methodical in my shooting: I always have a brainstorm for each shoot I do, and a clear idea, and most of the time, the steps I need to take to get to the end product.
So far, what body of work have you been most proud of?
I’m really proud of my first proper attempt at studio shots, particularly my studio portraits. Getting to work in the studio this year has really solidified my passion to pursue a photographic career in studio.

Natalie Vicari

What are you working on at the moment?
I am currently working on my folio, which is a series of 15 significant moments in my life, beginning at my parent’s separation, documenting my battle with depression and suicidal tendencies, to now being well into recovery and actually enjoying my life.
What do you do when you’re not taking photos?
Most of the time, I’m on YouTube watching a range of different videos: everything from gaming, to baking and cooking, to compilations of funny X Factor auditions. I think I would like to one day take a swing at making YouTube videos, but for now I’m sticking to photography.
Where do you find your motivation?
It’s probably not the best source, but more often than not my motivation comes from looming deadlines. Sometimes knowing that the due date is closer makes your brain actually kick into gear to think of ideas and to execute them.
Who/what inspires you?
YouTube, music, movies and television are probably the most broad source of inspiration for me, but also a lot of the new artists I get introduced to through my classes at PSC are also incredibly eye-opening.
What is your dream job/shoot?
I would like to one day do a shoot with Victoria’s Secret, either at one of their fashion shows, or for one of their campaigns, with the VS Angels. I would also like to be the photographer on tour with one of my favourite musicians at some point in my career. Fingers crossed at least one of those come true!

Feature Friday 30th June 2017; Shannon Ogrizek

Today we catch up with level 5 Advanced Diploma of Photography student Shannon Ogrizek

Shannon Ogrizek

 
What got you started in photography?
I love taking photos and wanted to learn how some of the famous photographers created their photos, but also I wanted to do it because there are endless possibilities and ideas on how to create images.

When you started at PSC, did you have an idea of the kind of photographer you want to become?
I had no idea what kind of photographer I wanted to become, I just really wanted to create my images, express my emotions and feelings through my images, as well as create images that I would love. I also really enjoy making images for clients; I like going through the process with clients seeing what they want, progression through that and then the final result. I’m a photographer of everything, I never turn down a job or an idea I’ll always give it a go, it doesn’t matter if it’s completely different to what I have done previously.

What is the most beneficial thing you have learned up to this point?
Most beneficial would have been to just create images that you want to create, create images that you will be proud of and happy with at the end of the day.

 

Shannon Ogrizek

 

What has been your most challenging moment at PSC so far?
Finding ideas for folio work and pushing those each and every shoot to get a magnificent photo and have it be something that I’m proud of, knowing I worked hard for.

What has been your most rewarding moment at PSC so far?
Most rewarding moment at PSC is always end of year finals, seeing my hard work and effort go into my folios every trimester and being able to see the final result at the end of it is just a really rewarding experience for me.

So far, what body of work have you been most proud of?
My most proud body of work I have made was my movement images and my domestic violence posters that went up around Melbourne.

 

Shannon Ogrizek

 

What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment I’m working on a body of images that is of the natural world, but incorporating slow shutter speeds with that. However I’m just constantly shooting with models and products, being active with my photography.

What do you do when you’re not taking photos?
If I’m not taking photos I’m usually on Instagram getting inspiration for a shoot I’d like to do in the near future.

Where do you find your motivation?
I find my motivation from other photographers work, being given encouragement and feedback.

Who/what inspires you?
There’s so many photographers that I’d like to talk about for this particular question but I really love Lindsay Adler and her work. A few Melbourne photographers, in particular a friend of mine Andy Swann, as well as scrolling through Instagram.

What is your dream job/shoot?

I really do love taking portraits/football photos/weddings and debutantes as well as landscapes/light trails, really anything that’s fashion or has animals.

Feature Friday 23rd June 2017; Anthony Mayze

The Australian Professional Photography Awards are coming up, which means our students are now preparing their state award-winning images for the national competition.

One such student is Anthony Mayze who studies the Advanced Diploma of Photography. Now with an incredible achievement of three silver awards, Anthony sat down to have a quick chat about his journey so far at PSC.

 

Anthony Mayze, 2017, (AIPP Victorian silver award)

 

Where did your interest in photography start? 
I joined studio arts in high-school which led me to focus on seascape photography as well as some astrophotography and I grew my love from there.
Back when you started at PSC, did you have an idea of what sort of photographer you wanted to become?
I had no idea where I wanted my photography to lead me, but always thought that I would alway choose a commercial path.
What is the most beneficial thing you have learned up to this point?
The most beneficial lesson in life is; what ever you put in, you get out, so always try your hardest. Photographic-wise would have to be learning to project emotions and personality into my work.
What has been your most challenging moment at PSC so far?
 My most challenging moment at PSC would have to be the folios; having a short time to execute everything and then to present it was rather difficult but I have always managed to prevail!
What about your most rewarding moment so far? 
My most rewarding moment would have to be when I won a silver award in the VIPPY awards.
How has your style changed? Have you noticed anything different? Your aesthetic? Way of thinking? Approach?
I have noticed that I am putting more consciousness behind my images in terms of looking out for distractions, as well as looking at ways to put my own twist on images. I have also realised that I love simplicity in my work.
So far, what body of work are you most proud of?
My trimester 4 folio on personal experiences with stress, frustration and sadness.

Anthony Mayze, 2017, (AIPP Victorian silver award)

What are you working on now?
 I’m about to start working on building from my ‘Stress, Frustration and Sadness’ concept with editorial fashion techniques.
What do you do when you’re not taking photos?
When I’m not taking photos I’m either working, spending too much money with friends or watching Netflix.
Where do you find your motivation?
 I find my motivation everywhere, whether it be a film or in life I can always find ways that sparks my imagination.
What or who inspires you?
Two major inspirations in the photographic world are Annie Leibovitz and Gregory Crewdson, their work is amazing. Another huge inspiration is my Nan who always wished for me to hold on to my dreams until I have achieved them
What is your dream job?
Ever since starting my journey in photography, my dream shoot has always been to recreate scenes from Beauty and the Beast with a Gregory Crewdson style.

Feature Friday 16th June 2017; Emily Skelton

Currently in her second-last semester at PSC, Advanced Diploma of Photography student Emily Skelton is already setting up her career; working with her local football club, as well as becoming a well-known figure around her hometown of Bacchus Marsh.

We caught up with Emily to learn more about her journey so far.

 

 

Emily Skelton

 

 

 

When you first started at PSC, what kind of photographer did you imagine you would become? 

At the end of year 12 and the start of PSC I had this idea of being a famous fashion photographer, the one who takes incredible Vogue cover shots. I wanted to control the day, the shoot and get all creative, but as I started to learn at PSC it was becoming harder for me to see that for myself. My ideas started to change, I still wanted to do really creative things, but I wanted to be able to capture moments people would have for a lifetime.

 

What got you started in photography?

My mum and dad handing me a 35mm camera at the age of 2. That’s how it started, taking photos for mum and dad when they wanted to be in the picture. Mum has a particular photo in an album at home of herself and my sister, under the photo the caption says “photo by Emily”; I was 2.
I was never was really good at English and Math at school, so art was always my favourite subject. I was a very good painter, but I realise now that whenever we went out I would end up with the camera in my hands and I would be taking photos of everything from the ground, to the plants, to my family. Then as I got older I wanted to do more, so I would plan out photoshoots and get my friends to model for me. I still remember the first photoshoot I did; I borrowed a Canon camera off a friend, I pinned a white sheet up in my grandmothers granny flat with my friends in front of it wearing white t-shirts. We had bright-coloured paint and used it to paint my friends hands, then print it onto their face. I loved it and that for me was the beginning of everything, but I wanted more.

 

What has been your most rewarding moment at PSC?

Not that I’m big on grades and all, but receiving a mark which I didn’t think I would get really showed me that if I push myself more I can truly achieve what I want. Being a part of open days and career expos has also been really rewarding too, as I can tell people my story and my experience here, as well as being able to meet potential students and make new friends.

 

What is the most beneficial thing you have learned? 

Before I came to PSC I was self-taught; I shot jpegs in my backyard on a little Sony camera. I have benefited  from everything; starting with the basic stuff in first-year, to all the studio set-up now. I have learned how to capture an image with the correct light and what angles to shoot from, I have learned how to use my camera and control it so I can get the very best out of images. If you had told my high-school self this, I would not have believed you at all. This course and school has changed me for the better, I have grown so much in my work and myself and I have truly found something I love.

 

 

Emily Skelton

 

 

What was your most challenging moment at PSC?

Everything has been challenging in its own way and of course some things will be harder than others, some things take more time to learn, or sometimes you don’t have an idea and you have to work with what you’ve got and go for it.

 

What are you working on at the moment? 

At the moment I’m working on lots! I’m shooting every Saturday for the Bacchus Marsh Cobras (local footy club) which is a thing I keep growing and manage to get a new angle every week. I’m also working on building up my clients by shooting a few weddings. I have done a few jobs that have been printed onto glass and have now been installed into peoples new kitchens. I am always working on the next creative shoot I could be doing. It’s a good thing I have two sisters; one that wants to be a special effects makeup-artist, and the other who wants to be model. We are always coming up with new ideas and things we can work on together.

 

Where do you find your motivation?

Myself, and my life which includes my family and friends, as well as any events that happen.

 

Emily Skelton

 

Where do you want to take your photography?

Everywhere! I want to take it from within my hometown to overseas. I want to create or capture moments. As long as I’m creating and exploring the world with my camera; I’ll be happy. I want my photos to help people remember their moments in life because if you have an image, you know you’re not going to forget it.

 

Who/what inspires you?

Everything inspires me; I draw elements of life events into my work, from random creative ideas that happen to personal things that have happened. Watching movies also give me ideas as does the music I listen to.

 

How has your style developed?

Well my style has developed from shooting with natural light, with a white sheet in my backyard (which I still do) to setting up studio lights and controlling everything. My style has grown with me and we both have changed over the years as I try to find myself and where I belong in the photography world.

 

What do you do when you’re not taking photos?

I’m either at my local cafe with friends drinking coffee, or I’m at home sleeping, but sometimes I work with my dad.

 

What advice would you give to current students?

You can make it! Keep pushing and build up your foilo, believe in yourself and just keep working hard because hard work can get you anywhere.
