This chapter will describe our experience of using photography to teach community development for first year university students. The students were required to take photographs as part of an assignment to compile a community profile in which they assessed the needs and assets of a community. Each student was asked to take two photographs, one positive or something they liked or valued and one negative or something they did not like, of their community. The guidance given to the students was not to take photographs of people without their permission or get involved in any dangerous or illegal activities that put them at any risk.
