I am a professional photographer. I am also qualified and experienced teacher, I have used this understanding of how people learn best to create lots of fun and interesting photography challenges and activities.
As a Mum of two boys (4 and 11). I have found that both my boys absolutely love learning and practicing photography and it has given me a great way to talk to them about so many things, helping them through emotional difficulties, promoting meaningful conversations and helping them learn about many different subjects.
I now I am sharing my techniques with you through my downloadable/printable ‘Junior Photography Challenge’.
As well as promoting skills for photography such as creativity, observation and calm concentration the challenges also link to a number of other learning areas, these include:
Colour and shape
The natural world
Using our senses
The download includes:
10 challenges and challenge complete sheets
Templates to create your own challenges
A Treasure hunt activity
