Assalammualaikum and Hello everyone!
Since last year Journalism Workshop got many positive feedbacks, we decided to do it again and actually make it every year. This time we are bringing more to the workshop.
Registration dateline : 16 March 2014
Yes, you are seeing it right. We are giving Photoshop CS5 for FREE!! Just remember to bring your own laptop on that day. Do also bring camera for the photography session. Not necessarily to be a DSLR, a simple digital camera would also work. The final day for registration is on 16 March 2014. We did not manage to put the speaker’s informations in the poster but we are excited for you to know them so here it is!
Mr. Fahmi is a 3rd Year student who is currently studying Bachelor in Education TESL, UKM, Bangi. He has a huge interest in Photography since he was at his small age. With his parents’ encouragement, Mr. Fahmi eventually gained experience on photography skills since primary school. He has succeeded a project during Form 4 with his amazing photoshooting talent. The interest in photography hence builds up stronger in him, throughout his schooling years.
Since enrolled into UKM, he was picked to join UKM Magazine (MA) Production Team. He has contributed his greatest passion for three years in the team and finally, he is now the Head of Photography Unit. Photos published in the 36th UKM Magazine (MA36) are not only impressive, but are also the reasons that have brought him here today, to share with his experience and knowledge on photoshooting.
From a kid who just loved capturing anything in front of him, until now, an outstanding photographer delivering a talk in front of you, most of his learnings and skills on photography were gained through his own observations and experiences in various projects and activities. He is a humble gentlemen who is willing to share everything that he knows about photography and photoshooting to those who are interested in it.
