Smart phone photography for 1st responders

The Smartphone Photography Course for 1st responders [ Police / Fire / Ambulance and Security officers ] has been created to provide an easy to use guide to unlocking the potential of a piece of equipment that will take a photograph that you already own and have with you constantly.

Smart phones are constantly evolving and becoming more and more sophisticated, as are the built in cameras that they come equipped with.

While many of us just use the Smartphone to take basic point-and-click photographs, they are capable of so much more, with just a little more understanding of photography principles and techniques, the course will give the 1st responder the basics of understanding the smartphone they are using to capture images in a 1st responder context to a police standard.

Incident / Crime scene photography remains one of the most important aspects of any investigation, a properly trained Incident photographer will photographically record everything of significance at a  scene that is visible before it disappears or is contaminated by other visitors to the incident.

A permanent photographic record can prove invaluable days, months, and even years after the incident, failure to obtain images at the time while at the incident or of a piece of evidence, can result in the photograph not being accepted by the Courts or an organisation in a subsequent enquiry.

This 2-day course is designed for all 1st responder personnel, who are charged with taking incident / crime scene photographs and / or presenting the images in judicial and administrative proceedings.

The course involves classroom lecture on photography theory and concepts followed by hands-on exercises.
