Photography Classes, Workshops and Courses for Children and Teens

Sharp Shots children’s photography courses are specifically designed for children to learn great new techniques available on digital cameras. Having taught photography for kids to near 1000 students we are excited to continue to ignite the children’s interest in the skill of photography that we are so passionate about. They will experiment with depth of field, fast & slow shutter speeds, and various types of composition. Children will gain a deeper understanding of their digital camera’s functions, allowing their creativity to flourish as their technical knowledge and familiarity develops.

Digital cameras allow us to take fun shots of our family and friends, but how many of us, get the most out of these amazing pieces of technology? Does your child ever try any of the other settings on their digital camera?

Surrey Photography Courses After School Classes

To expand our photography courses for children, we have now taken our kid’s photography courses into both independent and state schools around Surrey. Our after school photography clubs introduce different themes weekly to inquiring minds. Each student receives a camera every week to photograph a theme designed to enhance their new found photographic skills.

We also teach bespoke sessions to individuals or small groups and offer fun photography parties for kids too. We are happy to discuss any specific aspect of photography that your child is keen to develop and we can focus on it for the session or birthday party.

Our aim is to teach children’s photography and develop life-long photographic skills for children and teens in a creative and fun environment.

Our founder, Lillie gives photography tips on The Let’s Go Club on CBeebies.


“Thank you so much for the amazing work you did with our children. The work they produced far exceeded our expectations and has given us some wonderful art to display around the school. More importantly, the children have learnt some superb skills and have already told me about how they are applying them when taking their own photos at home.” –   S Norville, Headteacher, St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.

We were impressed throughout by how brilliantly organised and patient you are.  The clearly laid out structure and content of the course was reassuring, and your calm directions gave Jasmine confidence when she had initially felt apprehensive at the prospect of participating in a webinar.  Jasmine also appreciated your timely advice and support on the weekly assignments…made the whole experience fun and rewarding. Thank you and wishing you every future success. – Gail (parent)

“I just wanted to thank you for the inspiring afternoon that Milly spent with you yesterday. She had the most fantastic time and couldn’t wait to share what you had taught her. ”. – Rachel (Parent)

“Izzy thoroughly enjoyed her time at Brooklands Museum. She learnt so much with her new camera, and took some amazing photos. She’s looking forward to attending another course.”Anna (Parent)

“William really enjoyed and got a lot out of the online tutorial yesterday. He is raring to go with his assignment for this week. I’m also looking forward to seeing the photos he takes with the new skills he learns. Thank you!” Vanessa (Parent)
