On April 28th, I had the pleasure of assisting the Pritchard 4-H Club's photography members in yet another workshop!
I had previously worked with the Pritchard 4-H Club in 2017, getting the kids ready for their upcoming 4-H shows during the summer months. Being asked to be a repeat speaker for the club was a great way to not only give back to a program I hold dear to my heart, but to watch as the kids' skills had developed and grown. From upgrading their camera equipment, to remembering all the tips, tricks, and photo-jargon I'd taught them and generally being more confident in their own ability, I was truly impressed!
Photography is a great way to get youth to learn to express themselves and explore their creativity. It's fun to watch them as they snap pictures and allow themselves to be free of any "if's, and's or but's" that adults often suffer from when getting creative.
If you're interested in learning more about 4-H in BC, I would highly recommend reaching out to your local 4-H district and or the 4-H Office in Vernon.
If you are a 4-H leader looking to have someone come speak at your next 4-H event on photography, communications or an agricultural topic (ranging from plant to livestock production) please do not hesitate to reach out to me @ email@example.com.
Thanks again to Pritchard 4-H Club for having me out, and all the best to the 4-H'ers as they continue to get creative!
