Photography is a great way of sharing your thoughts and emotions, capturing snapshots of your interests and experiences, and showing the things that make you unique. The Royal Photographic Society and Action for Children is keen for you to get behind the lense and show them what’s important to you in your everyday life.

The project involves taking part in a series of exciting, playful online workshops with professional photographer Jo Bradford, where you will learn tips and tricks to produce your own images using anything from your mobile phone to the camera on your laptop. You are then encouraged to submit your photographs to the organisers.

You don’t have to be photographer or already have ideas to join the workshops. But you will need to come with the enthusiasm to learn something new and have fun along the way.

The project is due to end September 2022.
