Constantiapark Laerskool Workshop

Peter shares his skills with young photographers

Peter Morey recently shared his skills during took part in a fun children’s photographic workshop. Johan Meintjies, head of the school photography club at Constantiapark Laerskool, organised the event, assisted by Liezel Britz who owns Cheese Photo company.

An enthusiastic group of 25 youngsters and their parents brought along their cameras and tripods to the event. As one of the most active local schools in photography, Constantiapark Laerskool holds a monthly photographic competition, which is open to both children and adults who enjoy photography. The top photographers in different categories are crowned during an annual event.

According to Liezel, the fun event commenced with a studio shoot where the young photographers tried their hand at capturing images of the model. The next focal point was a Harley Davidson, where participants experimented with torches, light techniques and sparkles to create action.

The group then moved outdoors to take pictures of Peter Morey’s house, where they learnt more about shutter speed, bulb function and photographing movement.

Liezel, who started her company in 2011, says her focus is teaching photography to young and old in a simple and practical way.

"Peter Morey is my mentor and all the kids love him as their favorite photographer, not only for his passion and success, but for the unlimited sharing of knowledge he passes onto them unconditionally," she enthused.

Liezel said she received many compliments from the parents afterwards, who said they had learnt a great deal while having fun at the same time.

She expressed the hope that Peter would be involved in more workshops in future. Peter in turn, recalls that that his own love of photography also started at a young age.

"When I was about 16, Mr Gane, my English schoolteacher asked us in the beginning of the year what hobbies we wanted to pursue. His wife (who happened to be a bombshell), was offering the photography club sessions, so I persuaded my best mate Dino to join me in signing up for the classes. When I told him how beautiful Mrs Gane was, and that it was a great idea for us to become photographers, he did not hesitate," he laughs.

Although his friend Dino later quit photography to become a lawyer, Peter says he is still friends with Mr Gane and his wife today. "I suspect Mr Gane was not really happy by my boyish enthusiasm for his wife’s great looks, but fortunately we have never discussed it," quips Peter.
