Digital imaging pros holding lecture in PMB

2008-07-23 00:00

South African imaging professionals will have an amazing opportunity to learn from two of the world’s foremost digital imaging trainers next month.

Pietermaritzburg-based Africa Media Online (Pty) Ltd (AMO) has invited digital imaging consultants Peter Krogh and Graeme Cookson to share their knowledge and skills at practical master-classes in South Africa.

Krogh will conduct workshops that will demystify Digital Asset Management (DAM) and reveal practical techniques for effectively managing thousands of image files and securing their long-term storage.

The practical master-classes will be relevant to any professional with large numbers of image files, such as professional photographers, archives and museums, graphic designers and picture libraries.

Krogh is the celebrated author of The DAM Book: Digital Asset Management for Photographers and is known world-wide for his work on the Universal Photographic Digital Imaging Standards (Updig), the standard to which most of the world’s leading professional photographic associations work.

He is an Alpha tester for the professional imaging programme Adobe Photoshop and is sought after globally, having conducted courses for the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers, many of the American associations of professional photographers, and the UK-based Association of Photographers Limited.

He has also presented at the world’s leading imaging events including Imaging USA, Photoshop World, PDN’s PhotoPlus Expo and the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Adventure.

Cookson has been brought to South Africa by AMO on three previous occasions and his courses are consistently sold out. His master-classes are designed to help imaging professionals become confident that they are creating and assessing their images at global standards.

“Participants will have the opportunity to attend one-day lecture style training, and more intensive two-day practical hands-on master-classes with both Graeme and Peter,” AMO director David Larsen said.

The courses take place in Pietermaritzburg between August 4 and 8, Cape Town (August 11 to 15) and Johannesburg (August 18 to 22).
