Youngsters catch the photography bug


The Camera Store’s Shutterbugs summer camp run gave youngsters from the age of 8 to 16 years the chance to develop a keen interest as the Camera Store’s experts helped demystify the art of photography.

Each Shutterbug displayed their favourite photo on the ‘Featured Artist Wall’ at the entrance to the store which is usually reserved for local artists. Members of the public were encouraged to leave comments and praise for our aspiring, young photographers.

Featured Shutterbugs of the month:

Kevin Woods, age 10
I just started photography this summer with the camp. It was really fun. I especially like taking pictures of flowers, bugs, and other animals.

John-Ross Clough, age 8

I was a student at the camera camp because I love to take photographs of animals and plants and my mum. It was fun taking a picture with my reflection in it and then everyone else tried it too. I liked taking photos of the parrots and the buildings in George Town. The people at the Store were very nice. I would like to be a wildlife photographer one day except you have to have a lot of patience.

Look out for the work of more young photographers next month.
