Since the outbreak of COVID-19 across the world, lives have changed in a matter of days. Many parents, including myself, have wondered aloud ‘what will my children remember of this?’ some have started journals, others scrap books, as a photographer I want to share with you the power of this medium.
Primarily this will be through a facebook group which has been created for parents and children who wish to join me in documenting everyday life under the exceptional circumstances we now find ourlseves in. Most of the content is aimed at 10-16 year olds but anyone, anywhere is very welcome to join in. In fact I would LOVE to see people from all over the world getting involved. It can be very helpful to see how other people are dealing with this pandemic and how their lives compare, plus it’s a great way to meet people and share expereinces.
Weekly Photo Challenge
Join the Facebook goup to take part
The Facebook group will feature a weekly challenge encourgaing members to shoot a simple topic such as ‘how we learn’ – all challenges will be possible within the home. You can use an SLR, a point and shoot camera or even a camera phone. The aim is not technical perfection but rather a realistic account of daily life, as the famous saying goes ‘the best camera is the one you have with you’. Members will be encouraged to upload a selection of favourite images, each week I will select a top 3 to receive personalised feedback.
As me move forward I will be creating additional work sheets available for a small fee for those that wish to learn more and expand their photography further. This is entirely optional and will not affect the weekly challenges of course.
Any questions please do let me know,

History of Photography
We are not the first people to live through a global crisis. How do we know? People took pictures! Take a look at some of the greats.
Get your camera off auto mode! These skills will likely be more suitable for older photographers but take a look and see if anything helpful appeals.
No one living today has experienced such a dramatic change in daily life.
Photographs have been used to document history for nearly 200 years. Today is no different – grab a camera and make history!
