The Sharp Shots team provides children and teens with a creative and fun retreat to explore photography. Our children’s photography courses and after school photography clubs run throughout the year in Surrey and the South East. Each week the children’s photography courses have new, entertaining material for children to photograph. Every child is given a digital camera and inspired to go out and photograph the world in a new light. The Sharp Shots teachers and team leaders are a fun group of professional photographers who are all CRB certificated and thoroughly enjoy imparting their extensive photographic knowledge to the younger generation. They run photography workshops for children and photography courses for teens at exciting locations in Surrey and the South East. And don’t forget the team can provide lively kids photography birthday parties too!

“Both my children have benefited from Lillie’s teaching, both through after school club sessions and independently run photography courses. Lillie has introduced them to a wide range of techniques, affording them enough confidence as photographers to contribute on a well known photography web site…” – G. Norman

 

“Olivia really enjoyed the course and has been truly inspired with photography! From the first part of the course that I sat in on it was so interesting to learn how a camera actually works. And the results were fabulous too – please thank Harriet for sending those through so promptly, Olivia was very proud of them. It was so nice to spend time with people for whom nothing was too much trouble – very refreshing and really valued.”

 

“My daughter came on your course at Treacle Gallery this afternoon and had a brilliant time. She said how lovely her “teacher” was (that term seems austere for such a friendly lady who instils such a sense of fun in photography!) …I was genuinely blown away with how brilliant my daughter’s photos were when she showed me tonight. How many times as parents have we said “oh that’s brilliant” when our child has brought home something from school and secretly not really meant it?! But today I was really astounded at what she’d been taught, the quality of her images …and how brimming with ideas and tips and enthusiasm she was.” –Claire
