Why not stretch your child’s imagination over the October half term holidays and try a unique digital photography workshop?  Shutterbug Kids courses are aimed at children aged 6 to 16, and reassuringly can be tailored to suit all levels of experience. 

Shutterbug Kids have been invited to Polesden Lacey National Trust in Surrey, this October to provide a brilliant photographic treasure hunt.  Interestingly, your child will explore composition, light, macro, portrait tips and patterns of nature.  Children will be given the opportunity to look through their images and discuss their likes and dislikes before choosing one to print – a great confidence booster!  A digital photography safari workshop will also be taking place at Emmetts Garden National Trust, in Kent, and will cover similar aspects to the event above.

A Saturday workshop will also be taking place at Priory Farm, near Redhill, Surrey. The course will teach your child how to use design, colour, texture and framing in photography.  There will be an exciting opportunity to photograph nature, landscapes, animals and portraiture.

 It is worth taking a peek at the Shutterbug Kids website which is attractively designed and provides a little background on the professional photographers (Suzie Hammerton and Sarah Adams) who run the workshops, along with more detail on bespoke courses and children’s birthday parties.

This event is a must-do as it is sure to be a fabulous learning experience for children in a fun environment.
