‘Visual Storytelling Festival’

Documentary Family Photographer Briony Walker

Brisbane Documentary Family Photographer, Briony Walker to speak at CameraPro’s ‘Visual Storytelling Festival’.

I am super excited to be presenting my evolution from traditional wedding and family photographer to showing families their most authentic selves via documentary family photography on Saturday 26 May.  Here’s my blurb for the talk. *drumroll please…..

Briony Walker is a talented visual storyteller and family photographer who has a knack for seeing the beautiful “real” in the chaos of family life. For her clients, she collates a legacy of moments and everyday rituals for their future generations.

When she isn’t raising her 3 beautiful children and 3 gorgeous step children in a sunny corner of  Brisbane, you will find her happily wandering the streets, bush or beach, beloved FujiFilm X series camera photographing in hand. She also holds one-on-one and small group tuition in Adobe Lightroom, digital photography and how to make better photographs with the humble smartphone.

In April, Briony organised and participated in the 7th Annual ’24Hour Project’ global street photography challenge as the Fuji Film Australia and CameraPro sponsored Brisbane Co-Ambassador. The documentary style Briony is so connected with facilitated truthful moments, unstaged and unscripted, illustrating the power of photography as a “truth medium” versus the alternative of “doctored art”, two very contrasting photographic approaches.
As well as sharing the ’24hour Project’ her presentation will highlight the emerging style of Documentary Family Photography with the hope of inspiring everyone to tell their own story through photography of any skill level.
Briony will also introduce you to John King, General Manager of CameraPro who will be unveiling CameraPro’s new Photography Grant program.  how you can participate and use your photographic storytelling to make a positive change in society.
Briony’s aim is to share a new and fresh perspective on telling your story on social media to engage your followers!
WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS SESSION? Anyone with a love of street photography and those that want to make better photographs of their own family to preserve their family history.

So…what do you think?  Any tips for keeping the nerves at bay?! I hope to see some familiar faces there on Saturday. The rest of the line up of speakers and workshops, as well as the gear-talk and demonstrations look fantastic too.
