Photographic thought processes - a workshop
Date: Saturday 9th June

Not only are we what we think, but our photographic work is also a product of what and how we think. So it is a great idea to have a really good look at how we think about our photography and which thought processes serve your photography and which ones hold you back.

Wayne J. Cosshall has been a photographer since he was 14, getting his first camera to connect to the telescopes he was mad about. Thus his first pictures were of the stars and he has gradually come down to earth. He is the publisher of Digital ImageMaker International ( and involved in a number of other Internet publishing ventures. Wayne has been a teacher, educator and communicator all his adult life. He started his university teaching career whilst still an undergraduate student himself. He was a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Swinburne University and Head of the Computer Graphics Research Group for some 17 years there, specializing in parallel computer graphics rendering, computer architectures for graphics and mathematical and algorithmic art. Following this he went off and did writing full time and also taught (and consulted) at a number of small, private tertiary educational institutions, teaching photography, Photoshop, digital art and web design. He created his first computer graphics image in 1979, built his first computer in 1980 and constructed his first digital camera in 1986. Wayne has written for and/or edited most of the Australian photography and graphic design magazines, and written for several of the major US mags. His personal art work is strongly photomedia based and is currently an even mix of infrared and visible light work. Some are printed unmanipulated and some extensively worked in Photoshop and often combining tens of images to create scenes that have never existed outside of Wayne's mind.
