This printable book on Photography has a focus on subject matter, camera angles, framing and a more artistic point of view. It is not a resource showing you how to use all the different aspects of a camera—there is enough information out there for each type of camera for that!

This resource is perfect for teachers who are new to teaching photography. Everything you need to start your students on their way to taking a great photo, and appreciating other famous photographers and their skills is included.

For each Photographer and Concepts studied, there are practical activities for students to complete. Try getting your students to keep a digital diary and a hard copy portfolio of their best work.
