Join us for an exciting 3-day photography workshop during the school holidays! Guided by expert tutor Emily, kids will learn the basics of digital photography, including how to use a digital camera and techniques for capturing great images. They’ll also get hands-on experience with basic digital editing software to perfect their images.
But that’s not all! Kids will also explore the creative world of analog photography, using the power of the sun and light to make cyanotypes and photograms. They’ll learn the history of these techniques and how to create unique, beautiful prints using everyday materials.
Finally, kids will tie it all together by creating a small take-home book to show off what they’ve made. This workshop is the perfect way for kids to explore their creativity, learn new skills, and have fun during the school holidays.
All cameras and equipment provided! Kids can also bring their own camera if it’s in working order.
Suitable for 10-16 year olds.

Emily Blenkin is a Canberran photographer, youth worker and small business owner who really, really loves photography. She studied photomedia and applied anthropology at the ANU. After graduating, she worked in the remote NT and WA doing community development.
After returning to Canberra to start a family and spending most of her days with very cute children, Emily founded Wild Little Things Photography to photograph families and pets, two of her absolute favourite subjects. She also works with vulnerable young people, both in groups and individually, to use photography and art as a medium to foster resilience and build skills in emotional literacy. She has been teaching digital photography at PhotoAccess school holiday programs for several years, and runs community workshops to share the mental health and mindfulness benefits of photography and create strong connections within communities post-pandemic.
Her artistic practice plays with ethnography, documentary and narrative photography. She uses images to tell both completely true and entirely fabricated stories about motherhood, social justice, adventure and suburbia.
