Thanks for getting this far! I've set this course up (in record time) because of the current situation, with our kids at home (and many of us are still trying to work). This is the second enrolment, as the first went so well!
My aim is to teach your kids photography in a super hands-on practical way, that will mean that the theory will be absorbed by the 'doing'.
We all learn in different ways so each module of this course will include videos, presentations, a quiz and downloads. There are 4 modules, one per week.
There is also a PRIVATE Facebook Group that you can join for your child where we can share our work, I will give feedback and do LIVE Q&A's twice a week. This is our KIDS TAKEOVER community space.
The rest of the video based course will be delivered right here on this page, and can be taken in their own time at their own pace over the next 4 weeks. It's designed to fit in around your family schedule. Each new module will be released every Weds at 9am. There are 2 challenges per week and several videos.
The course will take a minimum of 2/3 hours per week, with most kids spending waaaay longer, (which I encourage)!
I know times are tricky and my aim for this course is to entertain and teach your kids, with easy to digest bite-sized modules that deliver some really big teaching. I'm hoping you can leave them to it, and get on with something else, or learn with them, whilst we explore our creativity together through the medium of photography.

“I signed one of my daughters up to do the photography course with Liz and, after seeing how much she was enjoying it, her two sisters asked if they could join in too. I’ve now got three budding photographers! They are seeing the world through different eyes and noticing colours, patterns and lighting of everyday things around them. Dog walks now have a whole new focus. So lovely to see them all so engaged. Highly highly recommend it.”Helen
“My daughter and I are loving the course - thank you! It's amazing to see her get excited about something other than Snapchat and Instagram!”Hannah
