Junior Photographer Workshop

Why does your child need this Photography Workshop?

As with a bird after a worm, an early exposure to a varied array of skills and experiences can be crucial in your child’s quest for their life’s love. At the very least, a new skill can develop into a hobby, engaging your child’s interest, stimulating their cognition, stoking their creativity and even paving the way for a future of verve and creativity.

At Toehold, the importance of this is not lost on us. Hence we bring to you the Junior Photographer Workshop for children in the age group of 8 to 16, specially crafted for growing minds.

Does this sound like you?

  • I shoot only in the auto or the manual mode. Auto’s easy and manual’s the best. Right?
  • I don’t know why my pictures are all blurry when I open them on the computer.
  • What’s ISO? And what ISO do I use in low light?

If yes, the Art and Science of Photography Workshop is just what you need!

Auto Mode User?

Learn about why Auto Mode is not a great idea to produce creative results.

What does this Workshop offer?

Starting with the basics of digital photography and camera handling, this Workshop will go beyond technicalities. It will train your child’s creative eye to picture the myriad riches in the world, and arm them with the power of self-expression.

What’s better, far removed from the pedantic banality of school, this Workshop embodies fun and interaction in a milieu of informality and creativity as its existential principles, and includes both classroom and outdoor sessions under the riotous tutelage a prodigious photographer. Patient, warm, humorous and full of beans, he makes learning an experience to savour rather than scamper to eschew.

Gift your child this Workshop, so they may paint their way with light to a picturesque future.
