Photography lessons for kids • Frederick, MD photographer

Hi there, I’m excited to be able to offer photography lessons for children beginning in January of 2021! If your child is interested in photography, but not sure where to begin, or a little overwhelmed, this could be the class for them. This class is offered to children ages 10 and up with a camera they can set in manual mode, ideally a DSLR. With private lessons, I can meet children at the level they are on and work specifically with their camera. Classes will be held in my in-home studio and we will adhere to wearing masks and keeping social distance.

Lessons will begin in mid January, and for a limited time, I am offering 4 lessons for the price of 3! Lessons are 45 minutes long. The starting day is shown on the calendar, and we will run for 4 consecutive weeks.

Some examples of what may be covered are –

  • Understanding how a camera works & becoming familiar with using it
  • Fundamental settings (Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO)
  • Exposing images correctly
  • Composition techniques
  • Seeing and finding light
  • Older or more experienced children may be able to start some editing
  • Homework assignments with critique and troubleshooting when necessary

Prerequisites –

  • Ages 10+
  • Must have a camera that can be used in manual mode
  • A genuine enthusiasm for photography 🙂

If you’re not sure you’re ready for private lessons, I also offer free photography lessons for kids on my youtube channel. Check some of these lessons out to get a sense of my teaching style. New video releases are announced on Facebook and Instagram.

Once you select your date & time, we will run on that schedule for 4 consecutive weeks. Your invoice for 4 classes will reflect one free class. If bad weather or conflicts arise, we’ll reschedule for a time that works for us both.
