I am an experienced photographer who has worked with film and digital photographic processes. My visual artwork is sold all over the world and my photography is currently included as part of an online collection for Saatchi Art.  
Every week a project will be set that will be uploaded to the Outschool class.  Learners can decide whether they would like to share their photography projects with the class. 
A camera is essential. This can be any type of camera, including a phone camera.  Learners will be encouraged to develop their photography skills and will be helped and advised with how to develop their skills with the cameras that they have at present.
