Train with digital imaging gurus

2008-07-17 00:00

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

Africa Media Online (Pty) Ltd has invited digital imaging consultants Peter Krogh and Graeme Cookson to share their knowledge and skills at practical masterclasses in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Pietermaritzburg.

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

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

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

Cookson’s masterclasses are designed to help imaging professionals become more confident that they are creating and assessing their images at global standards.

He has worked for The Times, did museum photography in Europe for the Yale University Press and has done news stills for BBC TV.

He now trains and consults full time in digital imaging, working with some of the UK’s leading imaging institutions including Reuters, the British Library, the British Museum, the National Library of Ireland and the Royal Horticultural Society.
