Light Painting with the Masters
For two nights only - 12th & 13th May, Brisbane photographers will have the chance to join Master of Light Painting Denis Smith and a team of experienced mentors for a session of hands on light painting magic in the iconic Spring Hill Reservoirs.

The Spring Hill Reservoirs are unassuming structures located behind the Old Windmill Tower in Observatory Park. They played a vital role in the provision of fresh water to Brisbane from 1871 until decommissioned in 1962. In 1863 Brisbane Municipal Council adopted a report by civil hydraulic engineer Thomas Oldham for a long-term solution to supplying water to the city's rapidly expanding population. The proposal involved the damming of Enoggera Creek, in the current suburb of The Gap, with gravity feed reticulation to the city and a service reservoir near the top of Windmill Hill (Wickham Terrace). This was a farsighted scheme to provide 12 months' water supply to 200,000 people – five times the population at the time.
These workshops are renowned as being exciting, high energy, inclusive and most importantly inspirational. You can be a complete beginner to light painting, and you will leave with dozens of images you created.
