When Tim Andrews was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2005 he left his job as a solicitor and found a new passion as a model, which has grown into an ongoing project. It all began when he responded to an ad in Time Out magazine from a photographer looking for people to pose for nude portraits, and loved the whole experience. He responded to more ads and so far 139 people have photographed him, from degree students to celebrated photographers Harry Borden and Rankin. Tim continues to be photographed by different people over the course of his illness. A truly inspiring talk not to be missed.

Simon Norfolk. Landscape Photography Masterclass
11 - 12 June 2011 / Various locations & times

This two-day workshop is a unique opportunity to photograph the landscape of Guernsey under the guidance of acclaimed photographer Simon Norfolk. We are delighted to have Simon coming back to the island after his inspirational exhibition and public talk as part of last year’s festival. He is currently exhibiting a major series of new photographs of Afghanistan at the Tate Modern, which runs until 10 July 2011.

“I’d like to go out looking for some light. This is what I do when I’m working, so I think it might be useful for intermediates and advanced level photographers to come with me and see it in practice. As a landscape photographer, the light itself is the most important part of the story telling. Finding light is what I spend most of my time on when I’m in the field.

For photographers, learning to think about light divides three ways: you have to a) see the need for it; b) know how to find it; and c) know how to capture it. So Part A will be classroom-based looking at some examples in my own work and the work of others; Part B will involve taking cameras out at unsociable hours and Part C will mean some technical tips about low light and crepuscular photography. Working for a day with me means classroom sessions with me in the daytime, then photography in the early evening light, photography in the late evening using artificial light and then back out for a bright and fresh 4am start for the dawn light. Sleeping is for wimps! Attendants can try to get hold of a light meter, or warm clothes, or head torch or strong shoes but everybody will most definitely need a good tripod.” – Simon Norfolk.

Meet at The Gallery, 9-11 Mansell Street

This workshop will focus on the art of Light Painting, a photographic technique in which exposures are made usually at night by moving a hand-held light source.

The light can either be used to selectively illuminate parts of the subject, or to “paint” a picture by shining it directly into the camera.

Light Painting involves very long exposure times, and each individual will need to possess the following if they wish to attend:

A digital SLR camera that has ‘Bulb’ mode, a tripod, a cable release and a basic understanding of how to work the manual functions on their camera.

CinéGuernsey Presents Tierney Gearon: The Mother Project
The Gallery, 9-11 Mansell Street
21 June 2011 / 7.30pm

Filmmakers Peter Sutherland and Jack Youngelson follow celebrated photographer Tierney Gearon over the course of three years as she assembles her most daring and emotionally complex body of work to date. Gearon’s work has been labeled manipulative, disturbing and even perverse. For her series The Mother Project Gearon turns her camera on her schizophrenic mother, who has suffered from mental illness for most of her life and lives alone in a small town in upstate New York. The photographs are personal studies of her family, yet raise larger issues of ageing, mental illness, and the complicated dynamic of the mother-child relationship. The documentary goes beyond the pictures, it is a moving and intricate portrait of the artist, her inspirations, and the unconventional family relationships that inform her world.
