How to Teach A Kids Photography Workshop
Teaching photography to kids is gifting them a life long skill. Every child I am around is intrigued by my camera…seeing, touching, looking at their picture and the list goes on.
Take the time to teach them the basics as you would teach photography to a beginner and I can guarantee you, you’ll be shocked at their point of view and what their eye sees.
As a photographer I have held several Kids Photography Workshops over the years and they have always been a HUGE hit! So if you are a photographer this is a GREAT way to boost your income, especially during the summer months- put on a kids photography camp, hold a kids photography workshop or teach private photography lessons to kids!
The work is VERY minimal with the right tools in place!
1- Choose Your Date/s
2- Decide how many can attend per class.
3- Advertise- via social media, private schools, organizations, community papers etc.
5- Chart our your lesson plan for photography i.e. blocked time for lesson time, project/shooting time, snack, games etc.
6- Collect a Deposit at Sign up, remaining is due the first day of class or the week before, whatever you choose.
7- Purchase items needed i.e. curriculum, snack, game materials
8- Prep Name Badges (found in curriculum)
9- Get ready to have a BLAST
10- Get ready to also make $1,000’s of dollars
Charge $100 per attendee
10 attendees in each class = $1000
Do this 4 times in the summer and you have boosted your income tremendously making a profit of 4K…all because you planned, invested a mere $100 and BAM!
Lastly be prepared for the most asked question!
One of the first questions I always get from parents is:
What camera do you suggest for my child? They want to take pictures so bad but I don’t want to spend a lot on a camera or even let them use my expensive camera… (I can’t say that I blame you!)
Here are my suggestions:
For younger children: VTech Kidizoom Duo Camera $47.99
For older children: Fujifilm FinePix XP120 $169.95
For Teenagers: Rebel T5 with a EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens $391.00
