The National Maritime Museum is hosting a series of day-long photography courses for those aged 8-13 years. 

On Saturday 18 August, the theme is ‘people and portraits’, the focus of which will be on finding the right timing and composition.

Students will learn how to look for a photo in their surroundings and capture people at their best.

The course will move between the Museum’s Great British Seaside photography exhibition, a studio setting and the grounds outside the museum.

One parent per family is invited to attend.
