Apollo Project \ Creative Careers: Photography Workshop

08 February 14.00 - 16.00

Millennium Wing Studio

Join us, at this Apollo Project event for young people, as photographer Hazel Coonagh speaks about her life and dynamic creative career while also providing technical tips and guidance. Hazel will speak alongside student Ayesha Ahmad, who will share her experience of gaining recognition as a photographer while still in full-time education. The event will trace the experiences of the beginner, the student and the professional in photography.

Hazel Coonagh is an award winning photographer and artist based in Dublin. She has been working professionally since 2010, after graduating with a BA in Visual Communications Design from DIT. Hazel’s professional work crosses multiple genres within the field, while her personal work focuses on portraiture and pushing the boundaries of reality in post-production to create unusual and experimental imagery. Hazel now balances a professional freelance career while lecturing part-time in photography at the Dublin Institute of Design. She continues to work on personal projects where she continues to explore the capabilities of digital photography integrated with experimental post-production and mixed media techniques.
