College Artist in Residence

May 15, 2014 at 9:23 AM

Term 2 started with an exciting opportunity for students of the Jack Paine Centre, with freelance fashion photographer, Emily Hlavac Green working with our senior fashion and photography students.

Emily graduated from Otago School of Art in 2009 and was named as a Top 10 Emerging Photographer in the Capture Magazine Annual in 2013. She creates work with a cinematic context in mind and draws the viewer in with images that evoke curiosity and intrigue. Emily’s work has taken her to places overseas such as China, Japan and the United States.

The ‘Artist in Residence’ programme has been running since Term 1 in 2013 as part of the Jack Paine Centre focus to connecting students with industry professionals. Providing them with industry links, specialist knowledge and exposure to diverse approaches of creative practice.

Emily’s week long workshops and one-on-one critiques have focused on collaboration, pre-visualisation and concept development, studio lighting and location shooting. Emily also provided a number of open workshops for all Jack Paine students that focused on analog photoshopping and basic Photoshop editing for fashion and beauty.

The students have enjoyed Emily’s innovative approach to photography, her personal tips and specialist knowledge towards light. Emily’s enthusiasm, skills and her ability to relate to the students have provided a relevant and contemporary extension of skills for the NCEA students of photography and fashion.
