team building activity

Patrick Heathcock Photography, Cape Town

Seeing the box

Photography is a highly engaging, creative, team building activity. Each person sees the world differently. Some people see the box and some people see how the box relates to the environment.

The concept

We work with groups to tell the story of a day in pictures - the good, the bad, the ugly, the beauty in a real, warts-and-all manner. Showing the box, the environment, the wrinkles in between. The whole story!

Each group will learn the technical basics of digital photography, good composition and spend time shooting the box, the surroundings and each other.


No special camera equipment is needed just your SmartPhones and native, onboard photography apps.

Areas covered

  • Depth of field - aperture
