What a Summer!

2013-01-15 — posted by at 07:46

Well the holidays are drawing to a close.

This means several things. Direct applications are now open, so if you missed your first choice from VTAC you can now apply directly to us, call the college on 9804 6341, or email admin @ pic . org .au [remove the spaces]. The light will continue to be very beautiful during the magic hour. And the time to catch up on any cultural  events is now.

Currently at the NGV St.Kilda road are TWO exhibitions worth seeing, Jeff Wall, and Thomas Demand, a great way to escape the heat and learn a little on the way.

Exhibition Preparations

2012-10-22 — posted by at 12:44

It’s that exciting time of the year again, where the exhibition is upon us. However; I want to stress the following.

Have your work ready ON TIME!! This means, at the college by this Friday 4:00pm.

Make sure your work is READY to HANG! This means, that if it is in a mount board, it must also be framed with clips and string if, you are not using mount board, it must have tabs ready for pinning to the wall.

It is always great to see the years hard work come to fruition, and we are looking forward to a great exhibition.

Bulk Loading Winders Mystery

2011-08-19 — posted by at 04:08

If you find any of the bulk loader winders anywhere around please please please bring them to the store.

Yesterday we had 4 left and now we only have 2 thanks to a couple of people who didn’t return them. This means we have 2 winders left in the entire school until a delivery of new ones arrives around the 20th Sep. These have been on back order for a year and a half.

If these remaining two mysteriously disappear, then no one in the school will be able to roll on black and white film until they arrive. These last remaining 2 winders are as valuable as gold now and can only be borrowed from the office.

So if you find any in your pockets, pencil cases, bags or shoes please bring them in.

Camp Krusty 2011

If there is enough demand, I will print, out maps beforehand.

The Photos from the 2009 Camp

Here’s some photos from the 2008 camp.

The Camp site is in a place called Tanybryn, about two and a half hours west of Melbourne. Here is a link to a map, that you can download and print out that gives written instructions on how to get there, as well as this map courtesy of google.

When to get there

We have booked the camp from, 1:00pm Monday-10:00am Wednesday.

About the camp

The Tanybryn campsite currently contains 2 buildings, a “rec” room, with pool table, table tennis table, a fireplace, 2 stoves, gas electric and a refrigerator, some couches and chairs, the couches convert to beds, and last but not least a fireplace. Obviously there is electricity, however, there is NO mobile phone reception.

The second building is the “dorm”. This is really 4 rooms with 3 bunk beds in each. Which means the camp sleeps 24 in total, of course people sometimes sleep on floors and as I said some room is available on the floor and couches in the “rec” room. Each room in the dorm block has an on-suite bathroom and toilet.

About Tanybryn & The Otways

Tanybryn is situated in the Otways a sub tropical area of Victoria, this area has HIGH levels of RAINFALL compared to the rest of the state ALL year round. It WILL rain when we are there, at least once per day, probably more. The frequency and quantity of the rain will be the unknown. So bring wet weather gear, as well as solid shoes.

A feature of the area is the waterfalls. Therefore there will be ample opportunity to photograph in these locations. If you have a particular waterfall or feature of the area you wish to photograph, let us know we can all head out together and check it out.

What to bring

Bring the following items

  • Raincoat/Wet weather gear
  • Hat, Sun & Warm.
  • Sunblock cream
  • Sleeping Bag & Blankets
  • Pillow
  • Towel & toiletries
  • Warm clothes
  • Camera gear
    • Camera
    • Tripod
    • Film/Cards
  • A bag of firewood, 1 per car.
  • A Torch
  • NO BOTTLES or GLASS, Aluminium only, what YOU bring in YOU take out.

What we will do while there

We have several activities planned, one a workshop called painting with light. The other, a “hike” and undertake a landscape workshop shoot. Monday night we will be having a trivia night, competition.

Driving Down?

One last note, please be careful driving down, break for a few minutes every hour or so while driving, use the opportunity to make some images while stopping. There is no need to hurry, someone will be there from 1:00pm on Monday.

What’s Going on at PIC?

For those of you staying behind this week, the facility is open for you to use to work on your own projects. Several of the staff are staying behind, to help.
