Give a Child a Camera Edinburgh exhibition is up!

Give a Child a Camera Edinburgh exhibition is up! Huge thanks to Wex Photo Video and in particular Emma and the marketing team for showing such passion for the project and for assisting & providing a great store venue. A special mention also to store manager Francesco, who equally demonstrated so much love & passion for the children’s incredible work.
It feels wonderful to be able to display work from the children in Southwest Uganda in the Scottish capital – I know for a fact they can’t believe their images are on display for the world to see.
The mini exhibition is up until the end of June, so please, if you’re in the area do pop in and enjoy the work of 15 children.
Plans for #giveachildacamera 2019 are well underway…..

Give a Child a Camera Update

Give a Child a Camera 2018 has certainly been an emotional rollercoaster thus far.
Working with the inspirational children at the Uganda/Rwanda border has provided challenges, tears, smiles and some great imagery.

It’s always difficult meeting a group of kids for the first time, especially when they have come from such hard backgrounds.
A few of the children are HIV positive and many of them have mothers that are sex workers around the border town.

We started off with a couple of days of light workshops, talking about cameras, how to hold, use and the basic function, moving onto basic composition methods.

A day out to a waterfall and visitors centre was organised (the children had never left the town area) for some creative, blurred and fun imagery..accompanied by lunch and soda.

A rest couple of days followed, but a photo walk around the border was on The cards for one afternoon. Providing an insight into their lives on the border.

I’m eagerly awaiting the films to come back from Kampala this week ready for an editing session with the kids on friday…

Here are few special images from the last week
