If you’re a teen and you’re curious about photography, become a Strathmore Shutterfly! Strathmore Shutterflys is a brand new program that teaches teens and tweens the basics of photography.

The program is free and run by local photographer and author Christina Hatton-Fearnley, who has over seven years of experience as a photographer.

“At the Strathmore Shutterflys free program at the library, tweens and teens will be able to learn and have fun in a relaxed environment,” she said.

“Everyone has a camera these days! We will take a look at portrait photography, animal, macro, nature, hard news stories and soft news, and of course a chance to win a prize at the end of the class for most improved photo,” she explained. Participants should have their own camera or cell phone.

Hatton-Fearnley is excited to bring this new program to town.

“This is the first of its kind at the library and I am so excited to meet more young faces in town. The library has been so supportive of my two new children's books and they are always looking for ways to support my love of the arts.”

Registration opens on August 29th at 10 a.m. with the program starting on September 20th and running every week on Tuesdays until November 1 from 4:30 to 5:30 with the exception of October 25.

Strathmore Shutterflys will be held in the library program room.
