Members of children's charity Kids Company visited us today for an introduction to studio photography, it was great meeting them all. Company representative Matt Cunningham write us a lovely review:
I work for Kids Company and was trying to look for a studio experience for our young people who are studying photography, this was incredibly hard to find, until I approached Francois at Simulacra Studio. He told us he would happily allow our young people to attend his studio and would give them the benefit of his knowledge and expertise and to give them a guided tour of his fantastic studio. He immediately struck accord with our young people using his knowledge and his unique creativity and style. He allowed our young people to get acquainted with top of the range equipment in a stylish, exciting environment that would be otherwise inaccessible for them. His advice and tutoring inspired our young people to think more creatively about their own photography and also sparked a conversation amongst them about how important it is for their work to be unique and express their personality whilst capturing the subject they are working on, an amazing thing to hear from young people whose lives were not so long ago, very hard to live. This conversation was still going on the next day and when I asked one young man what he thought of the studio his response was simply “deep”. We would like to thank Francois for such an amazing opportunity for our young people; I would recommend him and his studio to anyone.
