Oakhill College is fortunate to have such talented and generous parents who are prepared to share their skills with our students. Mr Christian Wright has over 20 years’ experience as a professional photographer. Mr Wright draws upon his huge body of work when presenting to the students. In his resent visit the students were able to hold two of his cameras and view the impact of different lenses; fixed, zoom, fisheye, macro, to name but a few. Year 10 students were extremely grateful for the insights provided as Mr Wright referred to the assessment notification as not being dissimilar to the contract provided by the client. He suggested the teacher is the client and the marking criteria outlines exactly what the student needs to address to fulfil the demands of the task. Instead of cash, the students achieve results which could bring personal satisfaction. He urged the students not to be satisfied with mediocrity and to aim for excellence and that is where true job satisfaction can be found.
