David James Carey Award

David Carey Image from 16mm experimental motion film course Nov 2017

David James Carey was a student of the darkroom since The Darkroom was housed in BLOCK T over 4.5 years ago. He started with the introduction to the darkroom course and continuously returned to do other courses and popping in and have a talk about his passion of photography. The last course he participated in was our experimental motion film workshop in Nov 2017.

David passed earlier this year in 2018, we will miss him greatly. He was a big character, who was a compassionate person and had a  great sense of humour. He had a passion for photography and his camera collection was envied by many, I lost count of how many Nikons he had.

To honour David and his love for photography, we are offering a chance to anyone who has an enthusiasm and passion for photography, an Introductory Course for free, be it in digital or analogue photography.
