Basic Photography for Kids

Christmas Break 2017


Thank you for your interest in this class. I’m very excited to be offering it.  First, a little background on myself.  I’m a Hingham resident of 11+ years.  Almost 4 years ago, I started my photography business full time.  I’ve had the privilege of photographing various Hingham Youth Sports for the past 5 years, including hockey, baseball, softball, and field hockey.  I have also photographed many local events over town such as road races and school activities.  I’ve gotten to know hundreds of kids in town.  The one things I’ve noticed, is that they are really interested in the camera and photography.  This is why I decided to offer this course.  And just for your peace of mind, I have been CORI’d with Foster School and Hingham Little League.  

Course Information

The course will be held at my home in my photography studio. We will meet for 2 hours a day, Tues-Fri, from 10am to 12pm.  The goal is to teach a little and have the kids shoot a lot.  I believe the best way to teach is to have them do it themselves.  I live close to the ocean, conservation land, and the center of town, which will give us lots of things to photograph.  We will spend a little bit of each class viewing and critiquing photos of classmates.  As you can see below, we will touch on a lot of things in a short period of time.  

The class will be made up of 4-5 kids.  This class is will require the child to have some sort of DSLR camera, with manual settings.  I do have an extra camera I can let someone use if need be.   Fee for the course is $300.

Course Topics

Intro to photography, camera basics, elements of taking a photo, composition and lighting, camera’s manual settings, types of photography, shooting portraits, shooting landscapes and wildlife, editing photographs, studio photography, photo walk/field trip.
