Services  //  School Events

I run workshops and creative light events for schools.

I tailor my workshops to meet the required outcomes of teachers. Kids love playing with light, and it is a great way to develop their imagination and creative expression. It also helps them to understand the fundamentals of photography which is all about light.

I can also guide students to create light-inspired art performances for school festivals etc using my range of specialist light tools.

In addition to the pleasure and learning experience students can get from these activities the school also gets some memorable images to share with parents, the community and on social media.

Upon request I can forward a FLYER that details the scope of these services.  Just email me here:

I have conducted workshops and light events for the following schools: Cranbrook School, Knox Grammer, St Aloysius College, Mount St Benedict, Danebank, The Macdonald College, Marsden High School, Gosford High School, Saint Patrick’s Marist College, Gilroy College, Glenwood High, Newtown North Public, Daceyville Public.

I also run light painting experiences for students attending overnight camps on Cockatoo Island


"Thank you once again for an extraordinary workshop! The Cranbrook boys were so impressed of what they learned in one evening. This one event had a huge impact on developing their camera skills! Some boys said it was their school highlight for 2016!"

Kind regards, Julian Wrigley, Visual Arts Teacher, Cranbrook School 7.11.2016

 "Thank you so much for the Cockatoo Island workshop. It was really inspiring! The girls had so much fun and absolutely loved your ideas and techniques. They did not stop talking about it the next day, it was their camp highlight!"

"Peter Solness has opened my eyes to more options in photography. His creativity and passion in light painting made for an amazing class where we learned so much about the cameras we used and how light interacts with our world. Going home, I couldn’t wait to try making my own photos and give a new life to ordinary objects that had been overlooked in the dark."
