Pallas (pronounced Palace) is one of the lesser-known Greek pantheon goddesses and the origin of the name for the element Palladium. An obvious choice to describe a celebrity portrait exhibition printed using a permanent printmaking process.
At its heart, Pallas is a portrait show celebrating actors and musicians from across genres. It is also an ongoing project that aims to bring together some of the world’s top photographers and master printer Bob Carnie. Each print is made using a permanent printmaking process and seeks to create an enduring record of those whom we celebrate, and the photographer.

Brendan Meadows Lighting Workshop 9am-12pm
Creating your personal style as portrait photographer can be challenging to say the least. The Tuff-Mudder of lighting workshops being offered will allow you to wade into a number of lighting set-ups and try something you haven’t experienced before. The context of this workshop will discuss how their approach informs the pictures they make and the best possible output. Use of very simple lighting set ups, location and using the sun as a light source will all be covered loosely.
Matt Barnes Portrait Workshop 1pm-4pm
This workshop is a rare opportunity to see Matt shoot a live creative portrait session for his portfolio. He will focus on the importance of shooting creatives — photography solely for yourself as an artistic expression. In the commercial world where you creating images for other people, companies, and products, it can sometimes be tricky to negotiate and balance one’s creativity. Personal projects are a great way to stay inventive and fresh.
