Photography Learning for Corporates, Schools and Colleges
Why corporate workshops on photography:
Photography as such is a creative art and in the recent years, there is a growing level of interest developing about photography amongst people of all ages, primarily due to emergence of affordable digital cameras and a lot happening in social media. What used to be a mere hobby a few years back, has evolved itself to a very intriguing and interesting engagement activity. Many corporates have found photography as one of the most effective employee engagement tools and many are already moving towards utilizing photography over the traditional employee engagement mediums due to evolving interests of the target audience.
Working primarily in modern cities, corporate employees are usually busy, away from rural areas, historical places of importance and nature; they seek opportunities to engage in activities to spend time in any or all of these areas and photography becomes a great connecting medium. Photography has reached a stage where one can easily say that the quest for images makes people travel and explore new places. It has exposed the modern inquisitive mind to a whole new world and with time is attracting some of the most brilliant minds from corporate sector. It is now such a strong force that many industries like tourism, transport, hospitality etc. are being influenced by it and being one of most easily accessible and pursuable art forms is the primary choice of the learned masses; the perfect medium of expression for the fast life of modern cities. Especially when photography is used as a tool to document nature and express the hidden beauties of natural wonders by visiting unexplored places, it works as a great relaxation, revitalization and rejuvenation process for all who work under the stress of routine corporate world.
Why photography workshops in schools and colleges:
