Ellis Gallery is changing it up

We are pleased to see that Lynn Ellis is giving back by hosting a great opportunity to engage in the learning of Photography. Here is her announcement:

Ellis Gallery has the honour and privilege of presenting Photography Workshops by the award winning and renowned Christopher Porter. A graduate of Dalhousie and Ryerson, Porter is a still photographer with many international exhibitions to his credit. His lighting and cinematographic work is legendary with movies such as ‘The Disappeared’, ‘Down By Law’, ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and ‘Shipping News’ among his accomplishments.

Porter will be offering three workshops in Lunenburg this fall and winter at Ellis Gallery. He will be personally involved in working with you to create your best work and develop photographic skills that are uniquely you.

Each workshop will be three intensive days of discovery. Every level of photographer is encouraged to attend, you must bring your camera, manual and laptop as well as an open attitude to learn, stretch and grow as a photographic image maker. You will be shooting daily and examination and critiques of your images will make for interesting and open discussions.


WORKSHOP ONE: Point of View

Will take a critical view of your image making skills, reflect on your knowledge of technique and personal point of view when making images. Time, space, density and memory are what each image contains. There will be much discussion as your images improve both in technique and content to meet your own individual goals as a photographer.

November 13-15, 2015
Space is limited to 10 participants.

WORKSHOP TWO: Progressive Lighting

Learn lighting from a true artistic lighting master. You will learn lighting from studio to natural light sources. Shooting will be indoors and outside. Creating lighting to meet your image goals is what it’s all about.

December 4 - 6, 2015
Space is limited to 12 participants. 

WORKSHOP THREE: Beyond the Basics

This is a more advanced class for those who really want to move into advanced image making. It’s a great follow up on the previous classes. The focus will be on preparing a concept, critical discussions, developing a personal look and expanding your opportunities as a photographer.

January 8 -10, 2016
Space is limited to 10 participants.


Be it a professional career or a family album these workshops will vastly improve the quality of your images and understanding of photography from the basics to advanced skills.

Workshop fees are $600 each or all three for $1500. Here is your chance to work at this level, with a professional of Porter’s standing. For more information or to register please call or email Ellis Gallery at 902-371-2291, or ellisgallery25@gmail.com.
