The session is led by artist Raymond Sagapolutele, who will demonstrate the storytelling power of photography, along with tips and tricks for getting the best out of your camera or smartphone. Plus you get free entry to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition on the day of the workshop.

Raymond Sagapolutele is an Aotearoa-born Sāmoan artist and academic with ties to the villages of Fatuvalu in Savai'i and Saluafata in Upolu, Samoa.
He has exhibited his artwork widely both locally and internationally, as well as being a founding member of the ManaRewa art collective based at Nathan Homestead in Manurewa where he helps to tutor and support the local arts community.
Raymond’s photographic practice focuses on his heritage, and in his hands the camera gains a voice and forms an oratory which connects to the cherished Sāmoan tradition of Fagogo (storytelling).
