Aspiring media students from the Foundation’s Disability Journalism Programme were treated to a bespoke workshop at the Apple Store in central Bristol last week, where they were joined in the experience by Bristol Bears fly half, Tiff Eden.
The penultimate stage of their extended pilot, students from Claremont and New Fosseway special schools took part in a 90-minute workshop at the Quakers Friar’s branch, exploring the latest Apple technology and its application for portrait and location shooting.
“It really was a fantastic experience at the Apple Store for students and staff,” said programme manager, Kris Tavender.
“The Apple Store personnel were great with our mixed-ability group and the technology was mind-blowing - and to have Tiff involved on both sides of the camera today just added another layer to the fun.”
“We have often worked in partnership with other individuals and organisations to create new media opportunities for our DJP crews, but the way this came together through our continued work with Ian Rice Photography and their connections with the Apple Store really created a whole new dimension to the programme.”
The final workshop of the series takes place at Ashton Gate this weekend, with a behind-the-scenes experience as Bristol Bears take on reigning Premiership champions Saracens. The 16-19-year-old participants will have gained a ‘better-than-ever’ insight into the media opportunities and roles that surround Ashton Gate Stadium and the Bristol Sport professional teams.
