Workshop Description: 

Stills Photographers take vitally important photographs on film sets and those stills are used to create the press and publicity for films. These arresting images, if they are done well, can genuinely contribute to a film’s success. Join pro Stills Photographer and Filmmaker Gary Weekes as he discusses the importance of taking the right kind of stills on set and the proper set etiquette to be followed.

Instructor's Biography: 
Gary Weekes has been a Freelance Photographer for over 25 years working with clients both big and small. As a Photographer, Gary has had Solo Exhibitions: “History on our Hands (2015)” through to “Skull and Bones (2019)” in local Fredericton Galleries and teaches photography in the evenings at UNB. He began shooting “Set Stills” over 8 years ago for a number of Film Co-op filmmakers and has now progressed from being behind a stills camera, to shooting, directing and editing his short documentary films. His recent documentaries “Housing First-The rest will follow (2017)” and “Growing Farmers (2018)” have been shown at the Silver Wave Film Festival. Filmmaking has now been added to the list of services he provides; with short documentaries, short films and infomercials sitting wonderfully alongside his photographic work. "Working with “moving images” has always been a logical progression for me and with it I bring; an attention to detail, joy and the beauty inherent in my stills work to this incredible medium."
