Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum is continuing with its series of art workshops ! This time we're focusing on digital photography. Most of us are excited about good photos but never seem to be able to shoot them.  Join us on this adventure where Gege Gatt will guide us through a 2-session workshop on photography.

Gege Gatt has many callings - he's a lawyer by profession, co-founder of leading web-application-development firm "ICON", ICT-recruitment firm MUOVO and a keen sportsman. But, he has only one true vocation: photography.  Having just turned 30, his photography seems to ooze decades of experience behind the lens. But the way Gege captures an instance and sees stories in the everyday around us comes from his ever youthful instinct and inquisitive eye.

He is a Getty Images contributor, a leader of the local FLICKRISTI group and a member of the Malta Institute of Professional Photography. Gege has exhibited in Nanjing (China), Lavandou (France) as well as several local exhibitions across Malta and Gozo. He has co-authored and contributed to a photographic book on Seascapes published by Midsea Books in 2009 and was commissioned to shoot an album cover for Transtechnia Records in Santiago, Chile. Online, his photos have been published by the BBC, Malta-Inside-Out, Canon (Germany), International Music Network and several other online galleries.


The course is geared towards beginners with a DSLR camera who aspire to take better pictures.
Here's what we'll learn:

  • Camera gear & Optics. How to select the right gear.
  • How to use your Camera. Grip & Posture.
  • Understanding Light and ISO ratings.
  • Get off AUTO mode - Understanding Shutter Speed & Exposure

  • Learning from the masters: Henri Cartier-Bresson.
