Growing up

Photographing education is tricky, because the learning bit is often time consuming to watch, but it’s possible to sum up learning obliquely. Expressing excitement and engagement together is a great start, then add in enthusiasm and sheer joy and exuberance.

Getting the right student there too, even better. Some children are just at home in the computer lab, others out on the sports field, and you really have to match the child to the activity. Musicians will tell you how painfully obvious it is that someone in a photograph doesn’t have the grace and skill needed. The same goes for any sport, at any level.

A big thank you to Dulwich Prep School in Cranbrook, in Kent, for the opportunity to show my work from their website and prospectus.
