It amazes me how many people expect me to get bad photos of their children. Especially when said child is about 3 or 4. I get it. I have 4 kids of my own. This year alone I have shot hundreds of children and in the whole 10 years I have been a photographer, I have taken photos of too many children to count.
So you can see why I am surprised when I get a "Good luck getting a smile!". Or a "Well you don't know my son." No, I don't. But I do know kids... and I'm thinking perhaps it's time I shared what I do know with you.
So I am preparing a special workshop for parents who want to take better photos of their kids.
Fake smiles? Cheesy grins? Kids who keep running away? I will give you all my tips and tricks for capturing your children as they are.
Don't get me wrong, I ADORE photos where kids aren't smiling. (but hey, I like photos where you don't even see their faces)... However, I understand there are times you want your kids to smile.
We will also be looking at how to get the best light, tips for composition and any other tricks I think you might like to know. The workshop will finish with a picnic afternoon tea of nibbles and bubbles!
Do I need an awesome camera? No. This session is all about the way you take a photo, not the technical how. (Although you can ask me any questions about your camera/device that you want.)
Can I bring my children?
We will need some kids to practice on, so short answer is yes, although please email me so I can keep track of numbers.
What Do I Need to Bring?
Once you have registered, an email will be sent to you with details.
