Hello tpg,

Are you jeff or frederick? Dropped by your gallery yesterday. Cool place. Liked the open concept and space of the gallery. Felt very comfortable. Noticed the Bose speakers too. What's the two black metal brackets on the wall for? The idea of pulling the white cloth curtains to partition the gallery for classes is very practical too. When will your website www.tpgallery.com.sg be ready? Does one have to attend your gallery's basic photography course in order to sign up for the travescape course? Congratulations and thank you for both your effort.

Cheers,
Richard

Hi Richard,

Thanks for dropping by TPG. When we envisage the concept of TPG initially, we had in mind to setup a space where it both functions as a gallery and as a space where we can have workshops, courses and studio space all in one. The brackets that you notice are meant for the studio backdrops in our studio workshops and courses.

TPG's website is still under construction. Give us sometime, will definitely be up soon.

You don't really need to go through the basic course for the travelscape though its highly recommended. You should however have basic working concepts of exposure and composition.

Cheers,
Jeff

I am interested in the nature course, but is there a typo in the timing?? I mean Saturday 3:30pm till 6am seems like a really long session, and I currently don't have a flash to take pictures in low light/night.
