Encouraging creativity in our young people, has long been an extension of my profession, as a professional photographer and within my own business and the wider community .

Over the last few years, we have provided opportunity for youth to exhibit and sell their work and provided mentoring and work experience.

We have also supported the Napier Schools DIGI awards, as a judge and sponsor, The Napier High School exhibitions with venue sponsorship and also provided tuition and workshops to encourage youth in their love of photography.

A 6 week programme, designed for schools students, was run within several local Primary schools, in 2014 and also as part of their curriculum, with Tutira School with great success for the students and the school. This programme has now been developed further, and is available for local schools to encourage students with a creative eye and passion for Photography to get involved.
The students will be able to participate as a group, to plan, and create a Photographic exhibition, around a topic that has meaning to them, as a team, to be presented to their School, at the end of the 6 week programme.
Week 1: 1 hour A brief on the programme is shared , asking for ideas and feedback, around a topic that has meaning for them, within their school, and their community. This first meeting would be a brainstorm session, to encourage and form ideas to take forward over the timeframe.
Week 2: 1.5hours Would be used to share ideas and ,ps around photography skills. Composition, exposure, and some easy to understand discussions around the foundations of photography. Looking at a collection of old cameras, comparing to todays digital cameras, and starting to create images toward the exhibition.
Week 3: 1.5 hour working together, to create further images within the brief.
Week 4: 1 hour : Editing, enhancing, and collating their images within Photoshop or similar
Week 5: 1.5 hour :Fine-tuning the images, creating the slideshow adding the soundtrack, preparing the multimedia and presentation to school community.
Week 6: Presentation to school and assembly
The images will be made available to the school for social media use, and a set of prints provided for an exhibition within the school.
Each Student will need to have either their own, or access to, a digital camera. Phones or iPads are fine, and can add to the creativity of ideas.
