Photographing Children

Photographing children is quite difficult but enormously rewarding. I have photographed countless children and it is hard work, to being allowed into their world and gaining their trust. Once you do that and you get down to their level, then their world is yours. Yes of course, to photograph a child, you have to be a child yourself first and remember, there is a child in everyone's heart. Most difficult task I face while photographing children is that you just can't ask them to pose for you. That's why you must have heck lot of patience. If you don't, then forget about becoming a Child photographer. Interesting part of child photography is to wait for the wonderful expression on their sweet little faces and being ready to click the right frame at the right time. It's tremendous feeling when you are able to freeze their beautiful smile and innocent acts.

Hi Jiten

When I travelled China in 1990 the only people that I was allowed to photograph were children! Their mums and dads didn't like being photographed but loved having their children caught on camera....very proud.

I must admit, I find it incredibly difficult sometimes to catch my kids at the right moment!

Dear Matt Burge,

Nice to hear from you and thank you for sharing me an interesting information on how chinese parents love photo being taken of their children instead of them together. Interesting!.

By the way, keep trying clicking more pictures of Jessica and Oliver, I know for sure that someday soon you will be successful to click at the perfect moment. Good luck!

Jiten.
