How to Photograph Your Art Workshop
April 21 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC+0 at ArtSpace $85
If a picture is worth a thousand words, what are the photos of your art saying? If they aren’t high quality, they might be telling the wrong story and costing you entries into shows or even sales.
Target Audience: Artists who want to learn how to get quality photographs of their 2D and 3D art to use in art call submissions, marketing and promotional use, portfolios, etc.
Description: In this workshop, we will talk about the elements of product photography for 2D and 3D works of art of varying sizes. This will include the use of lighting and camera essentials for getting the best photographs of your art.
We will have samples of both 2D and 3D art for you to get hands-on experience in photographing art.
Materials to Bring: The best part is that you don’t have to be a photography expert to learn how to improve your pictures. Whether you are using your iPhone, a point-and-shoot camera, or a DSLR, a few key elements can take your photos to the next level. So, please bring your preferred choice of camera.

Instructor: Gary Mc Alea, Owner of Gary Mc Alea Photography
Instructor Bio: A true world traveler, Gary Mc Alea was born in Dublin, Ireland, where he spent his childhood. He then moved to South Africa, where he spent about twenty years learning to love nature and animals and developing a love of capturing their incredible moments to share with others. Photography was a way to enhance the colorful stories the Irish can’t help but tell at every turn.
Gary has now lived in Austin, TX, USA for fourteen years. This is where he met his lovely wife, Katheryn, who thankfully shares his love of wildlife and nature. Gary has also travelled in Asia, India, Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand, finding different animals, locations and events to photograph in each area.
When Gary is not out photographing wildlife, he spends much of his time working with businesses on their photography needs. This includes photographing animals for zoos, breeders, and conservation organizations; art photography for independent artists; product photography for small businesses; and much more. With his expert guidance, you’ll soon take your skills at photographing your art to the next level.
