Kids cre­ate hol­i­day snap­shots

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - REXINE HAWES

A pho­tog­ra­pher with a pas­sion for kids and her com­mu­nity is hold­ing a spe­cial work­shop.

Rachel Prid­ham, di­rec­tor of Rachel Prid­ham Pho­tog­ra­phy is hold­ing two work­shops over the com­ing hol­i­days for kids aged 8-15.

Prid­ham says it’s her way of giv­ing back and pro­vid­ing a stim­u­lat­ing and use­ful hol­i­day pro­gramme.

‘‘I wanted kids to come and come to learn pho­tog­ra­phy, or learn about their cam­era or just come and have fun with their cam­era.

‘‘If kids want to learn how to take a photo, I can help give them a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing.’’

She says that while hol­i­day pro­grammes are great, as kids progress into their teen years, the pro­grammes be­come less stim­u­lat­ing.

She be­lieves the work­shop will cater to that age group.

‘‘It’s just some­thing dif­fer­ent, some­thing use­ful. Ev­ery­one is in­ter­ested in tak­ing pho­tos,’’ she said.

The ses­sions are held on April 26-27. The morn­ing ses­sion is 9-10.30, and af­ter­noons from 3-4.30.
