    Great lessons for a group
    Oct 06, 2017

    This was a great and easy way to prep for my lesson on photography in our homeschool girls club. Had a great time going over it and it peaked the interest to go deeper and practice more on their photography skills. The cheat sheet/reference guide was awesome as they went around and practiced at our meeting. Then the game was a great way to check comprehension.

    Good introduction to photography
    Mar 09, 2017

    This is a good short course to introduce kids to the world of photography. It covers aspects like History of photography, Composition, Exposure, How to earn money with photography, Posing, Basic camera adjustments in white balance and scene modes. It also includes a Q&A game and a guide for parents/teachers. This course is comprised of general guidelines that the teacher must be able to develop while keeping the children motivated. Recommended.
    Note: There is an editable version of this course, but beware: the course here at Educents is NOT editable. The pages are in .pdf format.

When our daughter’s school asked for a volunteer to teach an after school photography club, we immediately stepped up to the opportunity.

After all, we’ve been professional photographers with our own business since 2003. Not only have we photographed over 200 weddings, events and kids and family portraits, but we also mentored budding photographers along the way. With our professional photography and previous teaching experience it was a perfect fit.  

We sat down to create a teaching plan. Quickly, we realized there were little to no resources about building photography curriculums for adults or kids. The ones that were available for adults were quite expensive. So we created our own using the knowledge we had accumulated throughout the years.

That’s how our company Shutter Teachers began. Since we opened Shutter Teachers in 2013, it has become a go-to resource for photographers all over the globe. We’ve helped nearly 1,000 photographers save time with pre-planned curriculum templates at affordable rates.

Each curriculum offers in-depth and easy-to-follow instructions for teaching basic DSLR photography to children and/or adults.  The Shutter Teachers unique lineup of resources includes lesson plans, learning games, instructor notes, PowerPoint presentations and more! The Shutter Teachers basic DSLR photography curriculum is ideal for seasoned professionals looking to expand their business during the off-season.
