Understanding Dementia Course [University of Tasmania]

I’ve learnt that when you get the call to shoot at an aged care home, you drop everything a go!

The University of Tasmania’s Faculty of Health Wicking team needed to update their library of stock images for promoting their super popular Understanding Dementia Course. We aimed to create a library of fresh, up-beat images with in the context of a Tasmanian aged care facility.

I was amazed at the commitment level of the residents to be involved in our shoot. There were many laughs and much story telling, which shone through into the images.
