Excavation Photography Courses

06 May 2014

SIG: Archaeology and Heritage

Two linked courses in excavation photography by A&H Group Editor and founder member, Eric Houlder LRPS, were held at Wath Upon Dearne, South Yorkshire. The first course was classroom based, whilst the second was site-based.

A course that equips both archaeologists and photographers with the basic skills to record excavations to the highest standards on either digital or film platforms.

Though these are not RPS events, they are included in the Archaeology and Heritage Group website for the information of our members and others, who might find them of interest. If you would like to find out more about similar events in the future, please contact us.

Eric has been involved in site photography since the late '50s, and his work has appeared (chiefly over the credit lines of major museums), on both sides of the Atlantic.

Using examples from his extensive personal archive which includes the original Sutton Hoo dig and the award-winning St Aidan's dig, as well as the Towton Battlefield skeletons project and Time Team, Eric aims to equip both archaeologists and photographers with the basic skills to record excavations to the highest standards on either digital or film platforms.
