Photography is a fantastic life skill, it stimulates cognitive development ,  

encourages connections and understanding and it's great for your mental wellbeing. 




We work with primary schools particularly key stage 2 to deliver interactive photographic workshops. Photography is a great way to engage children with their surroundings encouraging questioning and thus leading to a greater understanding of the world around them.


After school clubs are a great way for primary school children to learn new skills and try out new things. Our after school clubs are aimed at years 5 & 6 and last 1.5 hours. Each session explores a different element of photography in a  fun and practical way. 


We work with community organisations, to connect the public with cultural, historical and local issues through photographic and creative projects. Photography is a great tool to connect with different groups and open up channels of communication and engagement.

Working together 

Its wonderful to be working in conjunction with these fantastic organisations, thank you for your support without your grants these workshops would not be able to take place. I look forward to working with you in the future with new exciting projects. I'm always open to new partnerships so get in touch if you'd like to get work with us.

Projects That Inspire 

Letters In The Landscape - AONB 2022- Present 

Headteacher Kelly McGrath said: "The children had an amazing time. They were all extremely engaged and many parents were commenting the next morning about how much they were talking about it the night before.

"One of them is now demanding a camera for Christmas. They were inspired. They were appreciating the world around them."

Why photography is such a great skill...

It's a creative process that encourages you to be in the present , refocusing and engaging you directly with your surroundings.

Mental Health + Wellbeing

Photography encourages you to be in the present by literally capturing the moment.  It can boost self-esteem, confidence, memory, and decision making. It can be a form of mindfulness which can help people suffering from depression, anxiety and even PTSD.

Boasts Creativity 

Photography is a simple yet fun activity for people to get involved in that not only builds up their creativity but allows them to learn a new skill which encourages them to be innovative and use their imagination.  A wonderful therapeutic benefit of photography, is that it can help us see the beauty surrounding us we just have take a moment to stop and look!

Cognitive Development

Photography keeps the brain in great shape...
According to research by Professor Denise C. Park from the University of Texas, photography is a highly cognitive activity. In her study, participants who engaged in digital photography were able to enhance and improve their episodic memory and reasoning skills.

We work with Arts and Cultural Events to encourage engagement and creativity .

Sharing my passion for photography

Hi I'm Sadie, freelance photographer, mentor, trainer & practitioner

I have been a freelance photographer for nearly 20 years working with a huge variety of clients from commercial to domestic industries. Over those years I have run workshops, training courses and mentored 121's.   When covid hit and work very abruptly stopped in 2020 ! I started a weekly online photography challenge for my friends and family.  It was really popular particularly with the children, the feedback was fantastic and the images the children produced were wonderful. This lead me to set up Snap Skool in 2021.  Since then I have worked with many organisations, community projects and schools delivering a series of photographic projects all with fantastic outcomes.



We love working with innovative groups and projects , Snap Skool worked in conjunction with Woodbridge Music and Arts festival on a series of creative projects . These projections were part of the Fish Friendly fireworks project in November 2023.
