It’s hard to believe that a year has already passed since I last held my photography workshop for Luminato Festival‘s Youth Volunteer Photography Program (YVPP). With this being my fourth year teaching the program, I was more than thrilled to be back again, inspiring and enriching the minds of highschool students. I recently finished holding the last of my photography workshops for Luminato Festival, and it looks like it was a great success again.
With about 30 students and 10 mentors, the workshop was bigger than ever. And with the new workshop venue at Artscape Youngplace, it all worked out flawlessly. It was great to see all the enthusiasm of the students during these workshops, which makes me happy as I believe they are better able to relate to my experiences. I even had one eager student, liking my first workshop enough to choose me and my second workshop over Chris Hadfield’s talk during Henry’s Exposure Show a couple weeks ago! Yay for me!
The weather was great, and our photowalk was lots of fun with so many things happening nearby at Trinity Bellwoods Park. Here are a few snaps of some of the students at work during our first and second photography workshops and photowalks.
Luminato Festival runs in Toronto from June 6-15, 2014, and for the second year in a row, I will be one of their festival photographers. I look forward to experiencing the festival and everything it has to offer us, as I test my skills in photographing the sights and sounds of one of the top-ranked annual international multi-arts festivals. If you haven’t experienced the festival for yourself, be sure to see what they are all about on their website at http://www.luminatofestival.com.
