Theft of Equipment

2010-07-16 — posted by at 06:50

A reminder that once you take equipment off the PIC campus you are wholly responsible for returning it. This means that even if the equipment is stolen from you, you are still personally and fully responsible for paying for a new replacement piece of equipment. Yes, that’s unfortunate but that’s the way it is.

So do not leave it in your car, do not leave it visible on the back seat, do not cover it with something or leave it in the boot of the car. As soon as you arrive home from school take it inside with you and don’t leave it where it can be visible from a window. ALWAYS hang onto it if you take it out.

Some of the equipment kits including lenses, pelican cases and accessories add up to quite a lot of money. For example to replace a our digital cameras kits will cost you nearly $2000.



Digital Prac Class, Exhibitions Etc.

If you own a DSLR, please bring it in to Digital Practical class this week.


Colour Factory would like to invite you to the opening of our next exhibition Urban Archaeology by Allan Kleiman on Thursday March 4th, from 6 – 8pm.

Allan, a successful commercial photographer for many years, has recently turned his passion for photography into the pursuit of fine art. This body of work presents the graphic beauty of the everyday, illustrating and recording degrees of urban decoration and decay. Mostly shot in the familiar streets of Melbourne, Allan invites the viewer to imagine and interpret these ‘discoveries’ in the same way that an archaeologist discovers the remains of ancient civilisations and reconstructs what life was like.

Exhibition dates 4/03 – 20/03
Gallery hours 8.30 – 5.30 Mon – Fri, Sat 1.00 – 4.00
