What you will learn:

  • How to take good portraits
  • How to write engaging captions
  • How to edit images to tell a story
  • Creative ways to share your work digitally or in print (e.g. Instagram, zines, books, prints).

Though we are particularly interested working with Clapham Park Estate residents, we are welcoming anyone with an interest in learning these skills. Prior experience is not necessary, just an interest in learning and applying new skills. If you don’t have a camera, please let us know and we will try to find a good solution. We only ask that you are available for at least 80% of the sessions.
