With our kids photography workshops, photography learning is a fun-filled activity with lots of practical sessions and hands-on skills. Our customised syllabus are targeted specifically to young children and teenagers wanting to learn more about photography, ensuring that the kids are engaged throughout the whole workshop, while taking home valuable skill sets that are not just about photography but social interaction and teamwork.

For those children that complete the full day, they will receive a certificate of completion.

Breanna-Radiant-Image-Certificate-of-CompletionFor owners of children’s day care or schools, this is a perfect activity to offer to the children during school holidays.

I have worked with the Mater Childrens hospital, several daycare centres and Ipswich city council running group photography courses for their kids to their program requirements.

Contact us to see how we can collaborate and bring this fun learning experience to your establishment.

What parents have to say:-

“My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the workshops. She now has a keen interest in photography. She loved learning how to use the cameras and then having lots of opportunity to use the cameras. She was thrilled and excited by the high quality of photos she was able to produce by the end of the workshops.”

– Darlene- Paddington

“My 12 year old son has done a number of workshops with Michelle from Radiant Image Photography and his knowledge, skill and enthusiasm has grown dramatically.  At one point telling me he wanted to be a professional photographer when he grows up!  I highly recommend these workshops.”

– Sharon – Daisy Hill

‘We invited Michelle to run a photography workshop for Ipswich City Council’s ‘Kids Go Wild’ school holiday program to assist children in taking photos to enter into the Ipswich Enviroplan Photo Competition.  Michelle was very flexible and easy to work with when organising the pre-event details allowing us to fit around the objectives of our program. On the day of the workshop we experienced some wet weather which Michelle did a fantastic job of working around to make sure participants got great photos without getting too wet. Overall this workshop was a fun and engaging way for children to learn the art of taking a great photo, with numerous parents mentioning that their child enjoyed the day and that they themselves even learnt some new things!’

About the Instructor

12046835_192582004408971_4886845997520483740_nMichelle Kennedy is a mother of 17 year old Hunter, who at the age of six won the Lord Mayors photographic award  (2007) from Michelle’s teachings.

Michelle has had a love of photography since picking up her dad’s camera at 4 and taking photos of ducks. Receiving her first camera at 7 years old and buying her first SLR at 15, Michelle has over 30 years experience and a passion for photography that is contagious.

The kids workshops were formed when other parents asked Michelle to train their kids and everyone had so much fun that Radiant Image Photography adopted it in 2012 as an on going option for school holiday fun.  (We’re not sure who has more fun – Michelle or the kids!!)

Michelle has a blue card and whilst team leader at Victoria Point Santa Photos in 2013 received multiple compliments from Santa, Centre Management and many parents about how much better the photos that year were compared to the last years because she took the time to make each family feel special and comfortable and captured real smiles not fake ones.  Michelle has immense patience, fantastic teaching skills and loves sharing her passion with the next generation of photographers.
