Augathella photography workshop wrap up

I had a great bunch of participants at my recent Augathella photography workshop. People traveled from far and wide to come to the workshop. We lucked onto a weekend with lots of stuff happening in Augathella.

The Anglican Bishop was visiting and agreed to drop in to model for the class. The Endeavour Rally was passing through and there was a rugby league game at the showgrounds so we had plenty to photograph. The town also looked a picture after the recent rains.

I was thrilled to meet Keith Clarke and his daughter Jane who attended the workshop. Keith is the father of Terri Clarke who I photographed back in 2004 and included in my 1000 Mile Stare Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra. Terri is married and in her twenties now. I photographed Jane in a similar setting to Terri – they both wore the same jacket in the photos, one of their dad’s work jackets.
