Welcome to Budding Photographers! For Children and Adults

A child hooked on photography is a child who rarely says, "There is nothing to do!" ~ Rain or shine! 

The tools that we will use are intuition, timing, point of view, a willingness to wait, and the courage to move closer…tactics that make beauty and meaning, otherwise hidden, visible. 

All of these things are part of how we naturally see, but we have to be aware (a shadow of a butterfly causes us to turn our head to look!) of them if we’re really going to see. 

What you notice will reflect the way the world speaks to you, and only you.

“You may or may not be able to change the world, but the world can certainly change you.” ~ Joel Meyerowitz

We will start each class with a connection practice. This entails closing our eyes, slowing our breath, and feeling with our senses what is around us. 

Once we have connected with our surroundings there will be a concept introduced followed by activities to learn and support the concept. Some examples are how to take photos with an iPad, framing, composistion, the rule of thirds, lighting, angles, textures, and subject matter to name a few. 

There will be a time for us to look at our photos and discuss what we love about them and what might have made them even better. There is no wrong photo...just a different perspective.

An activity will be sent home for the children to do...keep the creative juices flowing.

Classes will be held at the Botanical Gardens, The Nature Center, Beaverdam Lake and possibly a location downtown.

One parent/guardian will be expected to stay on premises with their photographer. Bring a book and relax or watch us do our stuff!

There are a series of 4 classes that will build upon each other. Each class will be an hour or so.  Please make sure your child has access to a fully charged iPad or iPhone which is what we will be using to capture photos. If child does not have access to an iPad I have one they can use.

Thank you for making the investment in your child’s creativity! Connecting with the natural world around them in a positive way is imperative for their growth. I look forward to being a vehicle in this growth and getting to know each child and discovering their gifts.

The series of 4 classes is $157.00. Payment in full is needed before the classes start. If child has a camera they can of course use it instead.

Adults are welcome to take classes as well. Private lessens are at an hourly rate of $50
