“B… is loving it!!!”
Mum about her daughter’s face-to-face online holiday course of 12 hours split over 3 weeks.

Welcome!

Inspiration based on a load of our tutor experience engaging and encouraging young people to think outside the box and explore their world.

Usually for our London-based coueses we offer FREE LOAN DSLRS. During this stay-at-home/stay-alert time we suggest using mobile phones or iPad/tablet phones or compact cameras, if you don’t have a DSLR. This still gives us lots of scope for exploring creativity and vision!

Ring us to find out more or to book: 0203 002 4991. We’re always happy to chat! Or email us for details or to book at: info@themangolab.co.uk

BEGINNERS & LEARNING TO SEE / Projects for indoors/outdoors – online face-to-face course with professional photographer and expert tutor
_____________________________________________________________

This course provides a fun approach to learning ‘vision’, photography and visual literacy using phone cameras or cameras, whatever you have with you during the stay-at-home/stay-alert period.
How close have you seen a flower? Did you know a camera can get you even closer? Ever considered how you hold your phone or camera and that the angle and perspective can make a massive difference? With us you’ll explore the indoors and outdoors near you with fresh eyes! Learn to capture and be inventive with how you photograph.

We’ll guide you in how to set a few things on phones or cameras to get awesome results, and encourage you to discover your own way of recordiing the world around you with senses engaged to what is around you.

Exploring what you see in the world around you has many benefits – you’ll be amazed at what you’ve been missing!
