CDP 2012

CDP-2012

It’s a been a busy year for CDP.

Since March we’ve run 4 Beginner/Intermediate Sessions, One Advanced Class and One Master Class session.

Students who completed a beginner/intermediate course were invited to select two shots taken during our location shoots, print and have them framed them up to exhibition standards.  The works were exhibited during a special exhibition entitled “The Brief” showing at the Curious Art Gallery during October/November.

Thanks to all our students for being part of our workshops. They have been a thoroughly enjoyable experience for all of us.  Special thanks to Curious Art Gallery for their support and use of the Gallery for our studio space.
