My name is Phil and I'm the creator of some of the world's most popular photography courses - with over 150,000 students and thousands of 5-star reviews like these ones for this course:
My Boy have just loved this course. Every week we completed a new project. My youngest is only 7 and he completed every project and had and awsome time doing it. fantastic introduction to photography. - Nicci Mcdonald
This is a very user friendly class. The weekly projects are easily adaptable to the age of the student. Without specific assignments it's easily to overlook all that there is to see in the world. Looking over, under, around, and through truly helps us see and understand objects we normally walk by every day. - Jennifer Overeem
We really enjoyed it. Thanks! - Ali Riggs

What's this course all about?
This course contains an entire section on the history of photography and basic photography techniques. This will give your kids (ideally ages 4-13) a great base for jumping into our weekly projects where they will actually be going out and practicing their photography.
12 Weeks of Adventures: Most of this course is broken into projects (or as we like to say, photo adventures!).
Each lesson contains and introduction to the project with photography tips tailored to the assignment. We'll explain what the project entails and get the kids excited for it. Then, we follow Anthony (our co-instructor and model student) around, as he does the adventure on his own. Finally, each lesson culminates in a photo review where photography-expert Phil discusses some of Anthony's best shots, and gives tips on how to improve them.
Each weekly lesson with the video lesson and the actual practice should take from 30-60 minutes.
Here are the Photo Adventures:
- What's in Your House?
- Architecutre - What's That?
- Animals and Pets
- Family Portraits
- Plants and Nature
- Bug's Eye View
- Photo Scavenger Hunt
- Be a Photojournalist for a Day
