S3 Photography

Pupils in S3 can choose photography as an enterprise elective with Mr Collins.
This has involved producing, exhibiting and selling artwork in collaboration with Strathaven Gallery.

The exhibition included a preview/opening night.
The theme was: 'Stillness, Movement, Motion' and all photographs were for sale.

The exhibition was the final part of an Enterprise project centred around digital photography. Pupils learned how to compose and shoot various types of photographs and the best were chosen for display in the gallery. The exhibition allowed pupils the opportunity to display their work in a professional setting and the experience of selling artwork. Several pupils made sales on the night.
The Strathaven Camera Club supported the exhibition and awarded prizes and trophies for their three favourite photographs. Hollie won 1st place and received £25 worth of Amazon vouchers as well as the Presidents cup. Scott and Angus won 2nd and 3rd place respectively.
The exhibition was a great success and a fine example of how pupils, parents, teachers and the local community can all interact in a positive and rewarding way.

Special thanks to Strathaven Gallery owner, Lucy Dawson for her continuing support.
