Photography opens the door to a life of exploration, creativity and technology. Children who are passionate about photography have a reason to get outside and discover the world around them. Do you love to hike or travel? Photography can help keep your child involved and engaged in family outings.


Do you have a teen looking to build a resume or a college application? Photography is an excellent addition to any resume. Every business needs photography and being able to contribute, regardless of your position, is an asset to a company.

This lesson is completely custom to your child's experience and interest. 


What You'll Learn:

This photo tour is very custom and depends on your child's experience, age, interests and equipment. No specific camera is necessary! There is plenty to learn in photography regardless of what equipment you own. With just a cell phone, I can help your child start to think about lighting and composition which are the building blocks of photography.


We will look at the world in a different way, exploring leading lines, repetition, symmetry and other rules of composition that can be found on every block. We can discuss what is "good light" and how to recognize it. If your child owns a DSLR camera, we can dive into camera settings such as f-stops, shutter speeds and white balance. 

At the end of the photo tour, your child will be invited to join Portland Photo Tour Forum. This is a Facebook group open only to those who have participated in a Portland Photo Tour and are interested in learning, inspiring and having fun with photography.  


Meeting Location:

Hotel Lucia
400 SW Broadway, Portland, Oregon 97205

Your choice in the Portland metro area.
