Summer Photography Camp

Does your child have a passion for taking pictures?  This weeklong camp will give your child the opportunity to explore their own personal vision and create a portfolio of original photographs.  Your child will learn and investigate a variety of photographic processes, techniques and styles.  We will be using digital cameras and inkjet printing as well as traditional black and white film, processing and darkroom printing. The camp is suitable for beginners to more advanced students, and each camper will be taught and challenged based on their own individual abilities and skill level by a professional photographer and experienced instructor.

Topics covered include: camera functions, digital and traditional printing, photograms, photographic composition, abstraction, portraiture, landscape and urban landscape and presenting photographs.  We will study famous photographs for inspiration, and a have several shooting field trips during the week.

Each day your child will be exposed to new photographic concepts to stimulate their creativity through two to three different activities.  Camp is a maximum of 12 students, so there will be significant individual attention given to your child’s interests, abilities and vision.  Your child will be stimulated, challenged and have a lot of fun exploring photography!
