Have you given your child the power to see their future with their own lens? 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 and hence they bring to you the Young Photographer Workshop for children in the age group of 8 to 16, specially crafted for growing minds.

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 of prodigious young photographer, Phillip Ross.
A master lens-man, Phillip is also the biggest hit with children since Robin Williams. 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.

Who should attend- Children between eight and sixteen years of age interested in learning photography. Prior knowledge of or experience with photography or cameras is not required.

What your child needs to get:
-An SLR camera and a lens, or a point-and-shoot camera (with manual controls)
Please note: Bringing a camera is strongly recommended, since we’ll have practical exercises for all the discussed topics. Please contact us if you’re not sure if your camera is suitable. You may also hire a camera from us if you don’t have one.
-Some pictures your child has shot, on a portable storage device

The classroom sessions will be held in the Seminar Hall at Toehold’s headquarters in Jayanagar, Bangalore, and the outdoor field session will take place in Lalbagh, Bangalore.
