Lifestyle Solutions’ new photography classes are proving to be a huge success for Hobart local, Brett, who has discovered a new passion for photography.
Brett has been a customer of Lifestyle Solutions’ disability support services since 2007 and since participating in the photography classes at our Hobart Hub, he’s built on his creativity and physical dexterity.
Jamie Turner, Lifestyle Solutions’ Day Service Coordinator at the Tasmanian Support Centre said Brett has been participating in the photography classes since its inception and has gradually been developing his skills.
“In the past, Brett was always a passive participant so it’s been great to see him get involved and improve on his physical capacity for handling the camera equipment,” said Jamie.
Photography class, which is held every Friday, is a new activity where customers can seek out and explore various community venues and take photos of scenery, places, people and items of interest.
Customers travel about, take photos and enjoy lunch together before making their way back to the Centre to edit their best selection and have them framed as a keepsake.
“It’s been invaluable for Brett to go through the whole photography process. He’s integrating more with his community and started working on a calendar for 2019 with all his best shots,” said Jamie.
Lifestyle Solutions’ Tasmanian Support Centre offers a calm and creative environment for its 30 customers to engage in social, community and recreational activities.
