Teens Photography 2017
We provide fun and learning at the same time!
While you work (or have some time off…), they learn new skllls, get to meet new like-minded teens and explore creativity in a friendly and innovative environment.

If you’re new to this page (and us), welcome!
We continue to welcome many new Teens (hey there!), add new courses to inspire, and have new tutors joining us to inspire and join in the fun of opening eyes to the creative world around you!
Our tutor Giorgia has now seen quite. anumber of you who really enjoy working with her. At Easter we also welcomed Niaz, who guided and inspired our Teens too.
I (Julia) am delighted to have some help as our Teens courses become ever more popular – with some of you returning either after a break for revision and exams – hope they’re going well!! – and others as ongoing regulars. We’re delighted to see you all!

We continue to receive excellent feedback from both parents and students of how positive an education they receive.  Thank you to all for cards, delicious chocolates and amazingly decorated biscuits, as well as invitations to far flung places! We’ll be on our way!
We love what we do and it is clear to us that you and your Teens love joining us! For us it really is about that spark of interest and the twinkle in their eyes we see kindled. And how their eyes open to the world around them. Exciting times and lots more to come. We hope to see you all very soon! 🙂

What parents say their Teens benefit from, including and beyond the photographic:

  • independence in travel around London
  • contribute to the group dynamic through being alert to logistical and photographic opportunities
  • responsibility to themselves and the group
  • social skills
  • commitment to an idea
  • project management
  • self expression
  • confidence through voicing opinions more readily, which feeds in to confidence at school.

Also in this exploration of growing personalities we are always excited to see some Teens show almost the opposite of what parents report or their teacher appear to say. We strive to offer an environment in which Teens can blossom and discover beyond school, and your kind comments prove we are getting it right. 🙂
