Photographing & Documenting your Work with Tim Durham

Artists can struggle to photograph their own work. If they don't know how, they may spend scarce resources paying someone else to do it for them but, with some basic guidelines and practice, artists are, for the majority of purposes, well able to photograph their own ceramics, drawings, installations, paintings, sculptures, textiles, etc.

This workshop will assist you in creating a methodical step-by-step process to obtain the best possible results with the equipment you already have, whether this is a digital compact camera or digital SLR. This process will allow you to create high quality 'accurate' images for proposals, submissions to galleries, websites, catalogues and press releases.

Perhaps you may still need to employ a professional photographer for producing coffee table books and limited edition prints but, having undertaken this workshop, you will have a better understanding of the process and potential pitfalls, and be better equipped to communicate with a photographer. The course will cover exposure, ISO, white balance, apertures, depth of field, jpg and raw quality, resolution of images, tripod use and much more.

To take part you will need:
  • Your camera with its manual. Manuals can be downloaded from the manufacturers website
  • Blank memory card
  • Fully charged battery and spare if possible
  • Battery charger
  • Cable for downloading images, especially if you have an older or unusual type of memory card
  • Tripod if you have one
  • A piece of art work to photograph
Tim can provide a small number of cameras and tripods if participants don't have their own. Please contact by March 1st if you require a camera and/or tripod for this workshop. If you are thinking of buying a camera, Tim would recommend you do the workshop first so you can better understand the features to look for in a camera.

This workshop is for artists, craftspeople and designers. However, the skills learnt are suitable for documenting most objects. For instance, if you are an archeolgist, historian or archivist and you need to record artifacts, maps or books, this workshop will benefit you too.

Tim Durham is a photographic artist. He holds an MFA (Photography) from the University of Ulster. He is interested in architectural interiors, boundaries and borders, the etymology of words and portraiture. For the past 10 years, he has been teaching artists how to photograph their own work.
