The back up zooms will be available to students who are part of our program.

What to expect on the day

6:05 you can present whatever you like or we can ask you questions. (please bring images to share and tell us stories about the subects or about the technical aspects of how you got the shot.)

6:45 You give the students a photographic challenge to pull off in 15 minutes.

7:00  You give them feedback on their work.

We wrap up when all of the feedback has been given but no later than 8pm.


The students range in age from 12-19.  There are usually about 12 or so students in the workshop.   Some more active than others. Most are beginners but some have won awards for their work as well.
