Photography with David Tatnall Print E-mail

For evening class on Thursday the 14th we had a professional photographer, David Tatnall, come to the SRC and do a presentation on his work. He showed photos he had taken all over the world and explained a lot about them.

Then today he took us out with the schools’ 4 film cameras to Needle Rocks to do some photography ourselves which I thought was awesome. We learnt how to use all the settings on the camera and were soon out getting photos of the massive waves and the eroded rocks. I thought the work that David Tatnall did was amazing and ended up talking to him heaps about different places he had been and how he got into photography. I loved being out there in the waves and finding small, unique things to take photos of that I would of probably just walked straight past any other day. I have always enjoyed taking photos of interesting things but never do it at home, so this was definitely a very exciting day for me. Then just like that it was time to head back to the SRC! I really wanted to stay out there and learn more but unfortunately it was time for the other groups to make the most of this amazing opportunity.

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) initiative offering a unique residential education experience for year nine students. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home regions. There are four campuses in iconic locations across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj. After consultation with the local aboriginal community, this name represents both the indigenous name of the local area and an interpretation of the statement "belonging to this place". Our fourth and newest campus, currently known as the Don Valley Campus is located at Don Valley, Yarra Ranges.
Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai and Monero-Ngarigo people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campus is built. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
