  1. I saw your photos at Port Melbourne and liked them very much. I would like to know if I could join the photography group. I have been taking photos for many years and am a volunteer with St Kilda News as a photographer.

    • Hi Irene, thank-you for your comment! We are thinking of running another course shortly- possibly around digital storytelling. I have forwarded your details to Sally, who will be in touch with you when we have more information to provide. Thanks again, the SHIP Team.
