The Wish Project
Do you have a passion for Photography?
Three Little Wishes Photography workshops is committed to inspiring young people to pick up a camera and get creative. We started running Photography Workshops 4 years ago, and along the way we have met some remarkable amateur photographers. We want to continue this trend by making our workshops accessible to as many people as possible and to nurture future ambitions.
So how can we help you?
Every year we invite 4 students between the ages of 12 and 16 to join our 4 month "Wish Project" mentoring program.
We are looking for young people who have a passion for photography and want to learn more about this fascinating art form under the guidance of our experienced tutors.
The successful students will join us for a series of workshops which will provide hands on tuition in a relaxed and fun learning environment. During this time you will learn how to use a DSLR camera, create stunning compositional work and have an insight into the world of a photographer.
We have two intakes a year
The workshops are run over a number of weekends during the 4 month program, and your commitment will be two workshops a month between the hours of 10am and 3pm.
Assignments will be set for each workshop so that your work can be reviewed and we can help you learn and grow as a photographer.
What will you learn?
We teach you how to use your digital camera to its full potential and to unlock your skills and talent
The workshops are practical and not based in a classroom and you will be expected to join in with the group activities and commit to series of assignments on a number of topics from Portraiture to Landscape.
