Matting Your Photos

CCOM 2810

There is something timeless and classic about a finely matted photo. Matting puts the finishing touches on and adds visual appeal to your favourite photos. In this one-day workshop, let photographer Roger Smith walk you through the basic steps of how to choose, measure, cut and use matting. By the end of the workshop, you can either display your matted photo as-is or go on to frame it!

About the instructor

Roger Smith was born and raised in Fredericton, where he attended FHS and obtained a B.Sc. in Biology and M.Sc. in Plant Pathology from UNB. While working on his M.Sc., he started taking photographs for the UNB Biology Department, and he soon realized that photography was a more interesting pursuit than his research on potato blight.

He recently retired from UNB after over 35 years as a scientific photographer for the Biology Department. Roger is a member of the SilverFish photo collective and Photo Fredericton camera club, and he became a juried member of the NB Crafts Council in 2001. He has been teaching photo courses for CEL since 2006.
