COMMENCING APRIL

Following the success of our inaugural 2013 Scholarship, we are proud to announce the 2014 Kingsize Studios Scholarship Class. Commencing Tuesday 8th April, this twelve week program is held Tuesday evenings at Kingsize Studios in Grey Lynn, Auckland.

The Kingsize Scholarship programme is completely free. Photographers are selected on the potential of their portfolios.

The aim is to give 10 – 12 emerging photographers a solid platform to build, learn and self-manage the development of their ongoing practice. The focus is to simultaneously develop technical expertise, your visual language and business knowledge: the art, science, and commerce to help empower you to earn.

The program includes group critique with focused discussion regularly accompanied by industry experts and guest speakers. Each week students are given a specific brief or assignment with the aim of developing skills and building portfolios. Students will have free access to studio space and equipment, and the full support of the Kingsize Studios team and infrastructure.

Scholarship students are also offered free places on other paid Kingsize technical workshops such as the Assistant Bootcamp, Film-making for Photographers, Intro to Fashion Photography and a range of studio lighting workshops.

Applicants can be from any background and any age. The perfect group will contain image-makers with a variety of experiences and interests who are interested in learning from one another. Please consider if geography or other work/study commitments will affect your ability to commit to the Scholarship.

Additional criteria, include the need for applicants to be at a stage where their careers are developing: these maybe recent graduates, emerging photographers, and anyone who is embarking on their new career in photography.
