Classroom photography raises funds for school’s PTA

I went back into school last term to photograph more children at the heart of classroom learning. It’s an amazing feeling to watch and be able to experience first-hand, the magic of learning through their eyes…happening right before my eyes. What also feels amazing is to be able to gift that same school’s PTA with some well-needed funds raised from the sales of these photographic prints. As a documentary children (and their families) photographer, I’m forever learning through their play – it is always a privilege to be invited into their world, and this was no exception.

The photos have been bought by the parents and families of these same children, and I’m over the moon that they now own a frozen nano-second of what their child looks and feels like, through their ‘wonder-tinted’ glasses of their own school’s learning and playing environment.

I found myself putting the camera down at certain points during classroom sessions and saying to myself “I never knew that” – it just goes to prove that you’re never too old to learn new facts!

I’m absolutely delighted to be able to donate to this group of parents and teachers, who work tirelessly with passion and enthusiasm, to give our children the best of experiences during their school years.  I’ve seen the incredible energy that these amazing people bring to a school, through my own child’s school PTA. So if you’re reading this, and think that your school might like to adopt this style of classroom photographic project, then please do get in touch. These are unique documentary photo stories which require time spent over a duration of a few months. This enables me to photograph children as naturally as possible, with minimum disturbance to lessons.
