The HITEC University conducted a photography workshop for amateur and hobbyist photographers to promote photography culture in youth.

A large number of photo enthusiastic students, primarily DSLR users, participated in the workshop conducted by HITEC University, Taxila in collaboration with ‘Nikon School’, Press Club and Creative Arts Society to promote photography in youngsters, mainly between the age of 17 and 25.

Renowned photographer and professor of NCA, Rawalpindi Muhammad Azhar Hafeez conducted a seminar on landscapes and portrait photography for the participants. The workshop covered a broad aspect on the field and diversity of photography.

“Attending this workshop was exceptionally experience for me. It is true that a camera does add to value of picture but it is the passion and dedication that pours into your picture and makes a long lasting impact. Azhar Hafeez’s work depicts such value and respect for all the shots,” said Hira Shehzad, the faculty head.

One of the students, Zohaib Tariq, who was also heading the event said “It was a great event, massive work was done by HITEC Press Club in organising it, the event was full of funny moments and was in a very friendly environment. As a photographer I have learn a lot in the workshop, panning shots and long shutter images were my weaknesses before but won’t be now.”

Talking about the event, Zubair Qutab, Nikon marketing manager said, "We at Nikon strive to make photography a memorable experience. We have been conducting such event in many different universities across Pakistan and we are happy to observe a growing interest in photography in Pakistan."

"Nikon provides a free workshop in the schools for the students interested in photography, which helps them in follow their dreams," said one of the Nikon organiser at the event.
