In May I travelled to Hopetoun passing 1 Echidna, 20 Emus and a Kangaroo to kick off Photo Stories Workshop. When I arrived in town I quite literally hit the ground running to find, photograph and edit a photo story on a local personality. I am a strong believer that the best way to show someone how to do something is to do it first yourself. I also enjoy showing them a familiar face at the end of my presentation to inspire them to go and create their own. The workshop was a success with 24 people attending from Hopetoun, Ravensthorpe and even Esperance. We are all actively communicating online and the photo stories are starting to flow.
Here is my photo story of a well-loved member of the Hopetoun community – Bruce Alford.
