Seasoned shutterbug Josie Chu helms digital-photography workshops at libraries around the city, sharing her image-capturing wisdom with up to 12 pupils at a time. The three-hour courses range in subject matter, from a Beginner’s Photography Crash Course that introduces nascent shooters to the basic functions of their DSLR cameras via tutorials and icebreaker games, to a Yummy Mummy class that teaches mothers how to compose, light, and print keepsake shots of their progeny. Students should bring a fully charged camera battery, an empty memory card, and their camera manuals to the workshop. Click here for class times and locations.<p>
Dressed in his favourite play outfit, the curly-haired boy stares mischievously into the camera in front of him. As his mouth opens into a broad grin showing off his newly sprouted teeth, Josie Chu quickly snaps a shot, preserving the impish smile for eternity on her memory card. This candid, relaxed approach to photography is a reflection of Josie’s belief that all photos should not only showcase the subject’s personality but also evoke a wealth of emotions in the stories they tell, from a quiet moment between newlyweds to a laugh shared by a family and their newly adopted sasquatch.
Nurturing her artistic passions since the age of 2, Josie officially began her shutterbug career by earning a BFA in sculpture and photography, scooping up an MFA in photography to further hone her skills and prepare her for a life behind the camera. Josie shares her passion for her art in her capacity as a teacher of film and digital photography at the University of Calgary as well as the leader of classes and workshops around the city.
