Founded in 1998, Kingsize Studios celebrated its 15th anniversary by launching a formal education program in 2013. Now in its fifth year, we offer a selection of beginner through to expert-level workshops, night classes and consultations.
Kingsize has always held a philosophy of teaching: offering workshops, intern programs, education and consulting.
When you attend a Kingsize workshop, you will be learning in a real-world, working rental studio. You will be taught by practicing professionals from the industry.
Kingsize partners with manufacturers, distributors, educators, and other community and industry leaders, all who wish to contribute to the education you receive at these workshops.
The focus for all the workshops is practicality: how we can teach you how to be more effective with your tools and skills, so as to make a better image, and potentially, better earnings. We are teaching from over eighteen years of service to the film and photographic industry in New Zealand.
We welcome requests for any new workshops you would like us to add.
KINGSIZE SCHOLARSHIP 2017 // APPLY NOW
DEADLINE: 20th March, 8am
COMMENCING: Week of 3rd APRIL 2017
DURATION: 12 weeks, evenings 6:30-9pm (usually Monday meeting / studio time, evenings Tue-Fri)
LOCATION: Kingsize Studios, Auckland
TUTOR: Russ Flatt
The aim is to give the group of photographers a solid platform to build, learn and self-manage the development of their ongoing practice. The focus is to simultaneously develop technical expertise, visual language and business knowledge: the art, science, and business of photography.
The program structure includes weekly group critique with focused discussion, accompanied by visiting 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 access to studio space and equipment, and the full support of the Kingsize Studios team and infrastructure.
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 looking to learn from one another. Applicants should be at a stage where their careers are developing: these may be recent graduates, emerging photographers or anyone looking to expand their skill set and find a new direction in their photography.
Please understand that the purpose of the Scholarship is to develop careers: not to produce a body of work (even if this is the outcome) – we want people who have a clear goal, ambition, or professional challenge that they want to work on. We want to assist you with going from A to B.
Please consider if geography or other work/study commitments will affect your ability to commit to the Scholarship. International applications are considered but first options are given to NZ Residents/Citizens.
The Kingsize scholarship is completely free of charge to participants*.
Kingsize 100% self funds the Scholarship, with the support of our industry partners.
