Kia Ora my name is Te Pania, I am 26 years old and I've been involved with the YIKES programmes since 2016. Last year I studied fulltime at NMIT and I received a diploma in digital arts including photography, this is a huge passion of mine.
I am very excited to introduce an element of photography/videography to the YIKES DTC CLUB. Here the children will learn about lighting, composition, perspective and all things that make up an effective image. They will all have the chance to develop their skills in a way that is fun, rewarding and hands-on. Throughout the term there will be opportunities for the club to participate in awesome photo/video activities and competitions that I'm sure they will love!
I'm excited to be working with the DTC CLUB this year and I look forward to seeing and hearing each child's unique view of life through the camera lens.
