The Sharp Shots Course Creation Team
Sharp Shots Photo Club is all about teaching photography to kids and teens, period!
The Sharp Shots team provides children and teens with a creative and fun environment to explore photography. Our online photography courses for children and teens have been carefully created by professional photography tutors with years of experience teaching face to face.
The team have spent years honing their tuition techniques, observing first hand what works and what doesn’t. Our online courses are tried and tested with great feedback and reviews.
The Sharp Shots teachers and team leaders are a fun group of professional photographers who are all DBS certificated and thoroughly enjoy imparting their extensive photographic knowledge to the younger generation. They run regular face to face photography workshops for children and photography courses for teens at exciting locations throughout London and the South East of England.
The Sharp Shots team is dedicated to teaching photography and have put together online digital photography classes that are tailored to the younger generation, focus on their junior needs, and allow their creativity to flow.
