Perfectly Captured by Kids

February 20, 2009 -- From Helen, a parent, from Northampton, England, who is affiliated with the site.

A brand new site specifically designed for children to share images, teach each other and learn all about photography. The site is Safe Surf rated and totally secure. All postings are moderated prior to release on the site and no contact details are allowed to be posted. The images are posted into age/peer group categories and there is an additional workshop category to post shots and ask for advice and assistance. We think this will be an excellent teaching and learning tool for children and one in which that the added security will be welcomed by parents.
