PHONEOGRAPHY COURSE FOR CHILDREN

A great first photography course introducing children to composition, colours and framing techniques.  Children can use phones, ipads and ipods for this course.

We will learn to view the world with new eyes as we wander around taking lots of pictures and learning some of the fundamentals of photography as we go.

Two hour course, suitable for children aged 9+

Cost:  £40 per person

An Introduction to Photography (using cameras)

My 3 hour Introduction to Photography Course is ideal for children and teenagers (aged 11+)  The course is not technical and most of what I am teaching will be relevant to taking photos on any device.  I will cover composition, colour and a little on camera settings.  You don’t need a big fancy camera – a little point and shoot will do.

The course is practical and there will be several opportunities for the children to take their own pictures using techniques that we have learnt as we go along – it’s a great basis for photography and a good introduction for those considering GCSE photography.  I would recommended even GCSE students start with this course before signing up for the intermediate course.

Cost:  £50 per person

CREATIVITY AND COMPOSITION

New for 2022!  Let’s learn more about composition and then get creative.  We’ll experiment with mirrors and prisms to achieve different photographic effects.    The course price includes some tools of the trade to get you started.  Suitable for those aged 10+ and any camera will do (including phones!)

Cost:  £50 per person

INTERMEDIATE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE

If you’ve already taken my Introductory course or have started using shutter and aperture priority this is the course for you.  Ideal for adult beginners or teenagers taking Photography GCSE.  I’ll help you get to grips with your camera, teach you some tricks and delve further into your camera settings.  Together we’ll get your camera off manual mode and use it to it’s full potential.

I would advise teenagers to take my Introduction to Photography first which covers a lot of bases before we get really technical in this course!

Cost:  £50 per person

ONE TO ONE TRAINING

"FUN AND ENGAGING & SHE LEARNT A HUGE AMOUNT"

My daughter Ana attended Alex’s Introduction to Photography Course for teenagers.  Ana absolutely loved the session and didn’t stop talking about it all day.  Not only was it fun and engaging, but Ana feels she has learnt a huge amount and is looking forward to the next course.  I can’t thank Alex enough for being so lovely with the kids and for fuelling my daughter’s photography passion.

Scroll though the gallery to see pictures that students have taken on my courses. . .aren’t they fabulous?!

If I hadn’t come on your photography course I wouldn’t have thought about the rule of thirds or colour co-ordination whilst taking pictures but you have opened up my eyes to a whole new aspect of photography which I appreciate very much!  Also thank you for the booklet which I have found very useful!
