The Institute for Tourism Studies (IFT) is hosting “Getting into SALON” photography exhibition of the renowned local photographer Kong Iu Lam and his students at IFT Educational Restaurant and Team Building from 3 February to 30 April 2016. “Getting into SALON” exhibits a total of 59 salon photos of Mr. Kong and eight of his students namely, Lam Choi Chun, Lam San, Leong Ho Fei, Tam Chan Ieong, Tam Keng, Un Cheok Wai, Vong Va and Wong Weng Sang. The art pieces demonstrate flexible application of the photographic skills acquired, presenting a variety of themes including portrait, nature, landscape, architecture, street, event and more. The exhibition aims to promote the development of local cultural and creative industries as well as to enrich the arts and cultural experiences for the local community. Photography enthusiasts and the public are cordially invited to appreciate the high quality art pieces and feel the charm of salon photography. IFT has been organising the “Salon Photography” courses since 2010, delivered by Mr. Kong Iu Lam, an experienced and renowned local photographer and President of the General Assembly of the Photography Salon Society of Macao. The courses focus on enhancing students’ photography observation ability and the development of their own “photographic eye”, that is, their unique sense and angle when taking a photo. Students are also encouraged to submit works to international salon exhibitions and establish goals for their creative path. Some students have already been successfully conferred Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain and received awards from international salon photography competitions with social recognition. IFT is always committed to promoting the cultural industry in Macao. In addition to constantly providing diversified cultural and creative courses, the Institute has also been actively cooperating with local artists in organising various kinds of exhibitions in recent years, aiming to promote local creative works to the community, build up a platform for local artists to demonstrate their artistic achievements and integrate art into people’s lives. To cope with Macao SAR Government’s policy to develop and promote creative industries, IFT started to offer short and fundamental courses in photography since 2011. IFT has continuously explored courses which are up-to-date, interesting and practical for the community. Currently, IFT’s Tourism and Hotel School is working with 20 international organisations, providing professional and certified courses and assessments to the public and industry professionals. Every year, the School provides hundreds of vocational and professional courses to a total of around 20,000 participants.
