Photo Caddy: Shoot Assistance
Is the guilt of buying an SLR and not doing much with it, weighing you down? Pass the load off to Photo Caddy, a new photography cell that will hold experiential workshops, live projects and starting next month, free tutorials on their website.
Photo Caddy was started by hobbyist photographer Sunil Thakkar and former journalist with Mumbai Mirror Gayatri Sarang. Their current line-up for workshops reveals an interesting bunch of photographers: Telling Untold Stories by freelance writer and photographer Javed Iqbal, who will take you through the workings of being a documentary photographer; Thinking Photography by fashion and fine-art photographers Andrea Fernandes and Phillippe, which is perfect for beginners since it focuses on the fundamentals and history; and The Photo Project by Aparna Jayakumar (she’s been published on CNNGo.com, who will tell you how to master the art of storytelling through a series of connecting photographs.
Each workshop will be treated as short courses. Classes will take place once a week at Bombay Connect, over a course of at least a month, where mentors will guide you through your chosen topic and review your photographs. And when you’re not in the classroom, you’ll be expected to go outside and shoot as much as you can.
Once Photo Caddy’s website goes live (by the end of September), you can expect to find technical tutorials for beginners and monthly contests. Perhaps even an e-store where T-shirts say ‘flash the photographer’?
