His First Real Camera

I gave my 6 year old son Cameron his first real camera today. He had been asking me for one for the past 6 months and he was very clear he wanted one like mine with a proper viewfinder, so no point and shoots would do. I told him I would be keeping my eye out for a good deal on a camera for him and today was the day. Cameron is now the happy owner of a good old Canon 20D! A camera I have a lot of experience with, as I shot one for a very long time back in the 20D days. He loves the camera and I think it will suit him just fine while he dips his toes into the wonderful world of photography.

When I gave Cameron the camera he was super excited and happy! I quickly showed him the basics and he ran out the door to shoot photos. I caught up with him about 45 minutes later and he was still wondering around the block taking pictures. We passed by this tree and he asked me to hold his camera. He shot up the tree, I gave him is camera back and he started taking pictures of this dog that was sitting in the grass. I’d say he’s got the right idea about getting a unique shot. Who knows, we just might have another photographer in the family. 🙂

  2. I think this is so great! I recently got my first real camera and I love it. It’s wonderful seeing a young photographer!

  3. Okay this is just too cute. So nice that he started so young and that you’re helping him on the way. I’m proud! Photos look amazing😊😊

  4. Now that’s an awesome father!
    I say ‘father’ because every man with a child is a dad, it takes a special find of relationship to be a father.

    Good job and keep snapping!

  5. When you raise your kids with a camera in their hands they learn naturally how to shoot and whether they do it professionally or for fun, it is a hobby that is always beneficial for capturing life’s moments. He looks like a natural; he is simply following your example and love of photography.
