Who should attend?

This online Children’s photography course is aimed at children aged approx 8-11 and is the simplified course of my long running Beginner Digital SLR workshop for adults. Upon payment, you will receive a notification with a link to set up an account for the child or to forward to their parents. The child can then log in, on a device (Laptop or Tablet) and watch the video tutorials, as I would do, explaining the areas at an In-person workshop.

This is aimed more for a child if they have  a Digital (point and shoot) camera, but will also be ok if they have access to a  Digital SLR camera but doesn’t go into how to photograph Off Auto, it will cover the basics of Digital Photography with some activities to do at the end of some of the modules.

The course covers the fundamentals of photography such as:

  • Introduction to parents (over view of online course)
  • Introduction to children – over view of online course
  • Module 1 – History of Photography
  • Module 2 – Photographers Tool Kit
  • Module 3 – Photography Terms
  • Module 4 – Exposure
  • Module 5 – Camera Settings (off Auto)
  • Module 6 – Light – different types of light
  • Module 7 – Composition
  • Module 8 – Different photography genres / careers
  • Includes a brief quiz at the end of each module AND an activity/ challenges + a Notes/workbook to download

 Launch price of just £39 


I am a mum and wanted to put together a course for younger children to encourage their interest in Photography so this is a much more simplified version of the Beginner Digital SLR photography course. The aim is to encourage children to slow down and observe and notice things, enjoy being outside, nature and also has activities to practice in the home and garden.

I have taught many 1-2-1’s for children, as well as Year 10 & 12 media studies students in a local Secondary School and Year 6 for The Henley Youth Festival, at several local Primary Schools. I also have taught at Reading College and held countless workshops for adults for Beginner Digital SLR, Smart Phone photography (for leisure) and for Business social media.

I love sharing my passion of photography, and thoroughly enjoy teaching. I have taught hundreds if not thousands over the years. I haven’t always been a Professional Photographer. I have been on the other side, got a fancy camera, didn’t know where to start, so got stuck on photographing in Auto.

They can log in online, and learn at their own pace, revisiting any modules if needed.


What a parent said about a  recent Photography 1-2-1

“Thank you so much for the lesson last week Kathryn, my daughter really enjoyed it, and I could hear from her giggles that she found it fun and it was so nice to hear her ask questions, she obviously felt very comfortable in your company and the level you explained things was perfect. I have seen the photos she has taken, they are amazing. Thank you for your encouragement and patience.”
