A passion for taking photos and the eagerness to learn new photography skills is all it takes to be part of the free photography beginners’ classes offered by the metro.

The cut-off date for submitting applications is September 14 and the classes will run from September until the end of November.

The programme seeks to equip young amateur photographers with the necessary skills.

The entrants must be aged between 18 and 30 years old and reside in the Eastern Region of Ekurhuleni, which includes Kwa-Thema, Langaville, Tsakane, Geluksdal, Duduza and Springs.

The beginners’ photography classes will be held at Kwa-Thema Library.

The classes are not a learnership or employment and, therefore, participants will not be paid stipends and neither will their meal or transport costs be covered.

Cameras will be provided for the duration of the programme.

MMC for Community Services Clr Dora Mlambo encouraged the youth and women to take advantage of this skill development opportunity.

“There is a very high demand for the free photography classes and we can only accept a limited number of students, which includes women, in this programme.

“The photography classes will be very beneficial to aspiring photographers who are looking forward to a fulfilling career in photography.

“They will improve their skill level to a stage where they will know how to photograph subjects and objects correctly,” Mlambo said.

The classes will take place on Tuesdays from 10am to 1pm.

Interested candidates can get an application form at the Springs Art Gallery.
