Click Happy Photography Workshop – How to prepare for it

Welcome to the FUN

Congratulations.  You have a spot in the Visual Poetry Jam.

You will learn how to tell lovely visual stories and might meet some other keen young photographers in the area.


Make sure you bring the following with you

  • A device or tablet to photograph with.  (If you have a fancy camera you can bring it but you will need to quickly upload and transfer to wifi so sometimes the phones are just easier for this workshop).
  • Bring an object that you consider a treasure.  You will be photographing this object on the day.
  • Lunch + Water bottle
  • Clothes that will keep you warm on the day + wet weather as we go outside a bit.

Please download the following apps on your phone

Optional but cool

  • Snapseed- alternative photo editing
  • Telegram (if you are planning on carrying on with the mentorship program you will need to have telegram working on your phone, tablet or PC.  You may need to ask permission to put your parent's email or age to register - and make sure that you silence notifications or you will go nuts with the boinging.)
