Tutor in Residence
Don Hildred from Brisbane
Don began his professional career after graduating with Honours from the Queensland College of Art in Brisbane. His academic excellence was recognised with The Australia Institute of Medical and Biological Illustration, Student of the Year Award. Currently Don has returned to study at the University of Southern Queensland, Springfield Campus to further his understanding of Multi Media, in particular Film and Television.
Don has predominantly worked in the commercial and editorial areas of photography in South East Queensland. His customers have ranged from small local Toowoomba businesses to Sydney and Melbourne based advertising agencies, such companies have included – Style Magazine, The Courier Mail, MoJo Advertising Agency, Origin Energy, The Women’s Weekly, Australia Post, CSIRO and The South China Morning Post (Hong Kong).
Over the past 10 years Don has run photography and Photoshop workshops for various arts organisations including the McGregor Summer, Winter and on the Bay Schools; Arts West; Flying Arts; Toowoomba TAFE College; Blackall Heartland Festival; Richmond Community Arts Centre along with numerous professional development talks and symposiums held in and around Queensland.
This workshop is designed for anyone who has a burning desire to better understand their digital SLR camera and use the most up-to-date version of Adobe Photoshop, CS5.
Over the course of the workshop you will familiarise yourself with your camera’s controls and settings, and how to get the best out of your lens and flash. While exploring these possibilities, we will go on numerous field trips both on-campus and off. Additionally we have the opportunity to photograph several professional models during our practical photography content of the workshop.
Digital photography these days isn’t complete without the ability to adjust digital files, and that is where Photoshop comes in. During the workshop many days will be devoted to investigating what can be done and extending these possibilities to producing an end folio exhibition for the final day of the McGregor School. All in all a great workshop for the beginner to intermediate photographer!
