Projects – As a teacher with a bent for photography I am asked often to add the photographic component to the school’s curricular and extracurricular projects. I’m able to justify doing so because the problem-solving along the way usually adds to my understanding of what is possible in creating images and because my understanding of what’s to be achieved within the project from an insider’s stance allows me to transform the familiar of school Life into that which enlightens people beyond our school. And, there’s always that element of daring to photograph what needs to be photographed. There’s a humbling element of being cannon fodder (perhaps Canon fodder) in pushing yourself to move close enough to photograph something that in terms of social boundaries you might not normally move yourself into. Over time students and staff become familiar with the idea that you’re the guy who’s going to visually record a moment, event or celebration. Within this year I’ve produced a photobook for the school (a mock traffic accident … that all students watched in front of the school featuring student actors), I’ve created twenty or so Animoto slideshows and I’ve added thousands of images to our school stockpile of yearbook photos. My images have helped celebrate student achievement in the local paper. I’ve pushed my envelope with photography this year and can see differences in my photography as I do a one year look-back.
Parksville, British Columbia Photographer and Mentor Alan Cornall tells me the key is to just stay in the habit of shooting … keep on clicking. My photography evolves.
