Photographing Children and Teens
Course Price: $179.00 U.S.

Got cute kids?  Everyone thinks so and everyone wants great pictures of their children, capturing those magic moments of childhood.  Photographing kids and teens is a specialty all on its own, requiring imagination and a readiness to delve into their world.  Learn how to make photo shoots with little ones and teen subjects productive and fun, with top editorial and advertising photographer, Allana Wesley White, who’s work appears in Parents Magazine, Scholastic Books, Nickelodeon, La Petit Magazine, and for kids’ international fashion brands.  In these online and interactive photography lessons and hands-on assignments, learn the basics of how to photograph children and teenagers that will make it a rewarding experience for both the photographer and the one in front of the camera.

You know what they say about working with kids and animals – don’t believe it!   There isn’t a parent out there who doesn’t want wonderful photos of their children and creating these can be both a fun and rewarding area of photography.  Some people want to learn to take better photos of their own children, to capture that fleeting moment in time before the child grows.  Others are captivated by kids and want to combine their love of kids with their passion for photography.  This is an area of photography that allows for fantasy, fun, imagination and play.  Photographing children and teens requires a whole different mind-set and a readiness to understand and view the world "in their terms," while keeping your mind on technique and general rules of photography.  In these online photography classes you'll learn how to capture the magic moments of childhood and those teen years, as well as develop your own personal style as a children and teen photographer - whether as a business opportunity or simply for your own family album.
