After a two-hour workshop imbues pupils with photographic skills such as controlling shutter speed and aperture, participants traverse the streets of Victoria, snapping shots based on a list of photo challenges. Each player receives a five-hour window to upload their pictures to Clock Tower Images’ website, where their hunting peers elect a favourite image in each category. Winners receive prizes such as a treasure map leading to a new digital camera dipped in gold. Customers can attend the workshop and hunt on either Saturday, April 14, or Sunday, April 15.<p>
Clock Tower Images
Founded in 2001 by photographic pair Mike Byrne and Gavin Young, Clock Tower Images initially abetted educational publishers, such as Disney and Discovery Channel, by supplying them with still and moving images. Since then, the ever-expanding business has recruited shutterbug Isobel Springett and fashioned a wealth of new programs geared around the trio's interests. In addition to its portraiture program, Clock Tower Images expertly frames horses —a passion of Isobel's—and a massive array of sporting events, including, in Mike's case, events at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and 2012 London Summer Olympics.
Mike and Isobel instill their image-capturing expertise into students at hands-on workshops and courses in Victoria and Courtenay, where up to eight apprentices at a time learn the ins and outs of landscape, portrait, wildlife and sports photography. For pupils eager to break out of the classroom, Clock Tower Images arranges a number of guided field trips and international photo tours that capture North America's west coast landscapes and wildlife, as well as numerous African locales, and into the dreams of slumbering migratory birds.
