Little Hot Shots is a new initiate from Ben Reynolds Photography that teaches the basics of digital photography and camera handling to kids aged 8-16 yrs, but impassioning childrens creative eye, and helping them focus on the world around viewed through the lens/LCD screen.

There are many proven benefits to having kids learn photography at an early age. Amongst other benefits, photography can;

  • help increase vocabulary and stimulate creativity (this is seen regularly in my workshops especially in photo critiquing sessions)
  • be beneficial to parents believe it or not. It creates a meaningful and productive past-time for their kids, which may be considered as an after-school activity.
  • can provide even shy and withdrawn children with a boost to their self-esteem. It can help children from a diverse cultural background to share experiences using pictures.

For those without their own cameras, we will provide you with brand new Fuji FinePix Ax550's to use on the sessions. They are very small (pocket size), 16 megapixels (which is allot), and have some really interesting mode setting such as panorama (which stitches multiple photos together in camera)
