Photographic Course for Kids (or Adults) by Ilan Ossendryver

After giving successful photo courses to kids living in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, Israel, I am back in Johannesburg and would love to offer the same courses here.
The course is aimed at expanding the creativity that is within each child or adult.

The class will be begin at 9am with the theory presented in a way that is fun for children.
The course can be done through Zoom
We then can choose an area to photograph or if the course is done through Zoom, then after you can photograph in your sorroundings.
The course will have three components:

  • Theory
  • Practical
  • Introduction to Photoshop


  • What is photography?
  • The beginning of photography
  • Understanding cameras and digital photography
  • Using the camera and settings
    • Aperture, speed, ISO
    • Fast photography, slow photography
    • Bright light photography, low light photography
  • Understanding the lens and how to shoot for the occasion


  • Learning street photography
  • The practical photography will take place in an interesting venue, for children to explore and be creative (under strict supervision). Or it can be done in your sorroundings after the Zoom course.
  • How to interact with people and to take their photo
  • How to see images – composition and perspective

Introduction to Photoshop

  • All candidates will learn basic Photoshop skills so that they can optimise their photographs:
  • The skills taught will include tools such as brightening, contrast, shadow/highlight, sharpening and more…


The course is targeted at children between the ages of 7 – 10 and 11- 15
Each group is limited to 6 kids.


The cost per child is R350

COVID-19 Guidlines during the tour

  • First off, I am vaccinated with the Phizer vaccination.
  • Prior to each trip, the vehicle will be cleaned and sanitized for the trip.  This is done for every trip to ensure sanitization.
  • In my vehicle, I will supply as I do all my guests, masks and sanitizer.  Sanitizers are placed on both sides of the doors of the guests.
  • Before getting into my vehicle, we will sanitize all hands.
    During the trip we will come into contact with people and we will as much as possible keep to social distancing.  Children may come and do an elbow greeting.
  • We will take sanitizer with us always.

Please Note: All precautions will be taken but it must be recognized that there is a World Pandemic and  I or anyone cannot be responsible in the case of contacting Covide-19.
It can be contracted on the way to the airport, on a plane or anywhere.  BUT with the right attitude and precautions, It can be very much avoided.
