TICE Photography is an extremely popular option for schools and students to explore. The Silver Stage of the programme allows students to visit places which they may never have been to but also be involved in unique workshops developing their skills AND meeting some extremely interesting professionals. Here’s a quick overview of the the first day of TICE Photography Silver Stage 2015.
A ‘Taylor’ made visit to NUFC…
On 12th February Katie Lee, TICE Photography Mentor, went to Newcastle Utd Football Club at St James Park with Longbenton Community College. The day was made even more special with the football clubs resident photographer coming along to work with the students. Serena Taylor is a professional photographer who does all of the clubs photography. She works pitch side on match days and also does training and corporate photography.
Serena gave the students an inspiring talk about her work and how she became a photographer, giving them a real insight into her work and life as a photographer. We really hope this inspired some of the budding sports photographs.
What do you feel you’ve picked up whilst being involved in the Silver Stage?
“Techniques and confidence” by Zoe, Longbenton Community College.
The students were given a tour of the ground and they had to take photographs using everything they’d learnt about composition and image making.
This is a packed day with so much for the students to see and learn. It’s an opportunity to really inside the life of a sports photographer and what it takes to stay at the top of your game.
Well done Longbenton, you did me proud. by Katie Lee.
And a HUGE thank you to Serena Taylor (the most inspiring person they’ve met according to our feedback forms!) and the Newcastle United Foundation for once again allowing us to come! #oneinalifetimeopportunites
