About focusfor

The FOCUS FORCE photographic workshop program for Kids With Cameras is based in Melbourne, Australia. The projects have gone beyond the Victorian borders, into New South Wales, and Tasmania.Through others including a backpacker it has been provided to children in Thailand, and a teacher in Portugal has inspired children there as well. Apart, from the fun of learning about the camera and developing the skill of taking better photos; the best of which are raised to the status of SUPER SHOTS,the works have been mounted as collections under the banner of the FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITIONS, and sent as gifts of friendship and goodwill to the United States, Italy, Japan, China - others are still being worked on. The program enrciches the children's knowledge, and as a side benefit makes them more aware of their own surroundings,and all that is to value where they live. Then comes the delight of being achievers, and having their self esteem boosted by their successes.The term "kids with cameras" was first used by the program's forerunner; CLICKER - the "club for kids with cameras", and dates back to the mid 1980's. The name change came about as wanting to be more appropriate to the older student group that the program now works with.

  1. What a tremendous groop of photoes….these kids have done a great job.
    My favorate photo however is 714MP20…the bright colours of the paintings on the walls of the laneway and yet the lonely person walking down the lane on a wet and cold day, Makes you stop and think about the homeless

  2. Image 714MP1 from Madeleine Puli. I would have never guessed this image was created from a door handle, even if it is at the exquisite “Tiffany”. By shooting the image up close Madeleine has given the object a new dimension, creating many visually pleasing and intricate patterns. I would definitely hang this up on my wall!

  3. Image 714MP20 from Madeleine Puli. This photo depicts the Melbourne we all know and love. The graffiti lane way is a famous tourist destination and when photographed it creates colour and life.
