Learn Photography at NYFA
NYFA’s photography programs introduce the next generation of visual artists to the technology and visual language of digital photography. In these hands-on kids photography camps, students aged 10-13 can explore the exciting creative world of photography through fun, compelling projects. NYFA currently offers in-person, on-campus summer camps and weekend camps. We also offer online programs on a seasonal basis.
Camps: Level I
In our level-one camps, students have the opportunity to learn from our faculty of working industry professionals, shooting and editing their own images.
NYFA will supply each student with a DSLR camera to use during the program. At the end of the camp, students receive a copy of their photography on a USB drive. While some of our kids camps offer level-two programs, our photography camps are currently available as level-one programs only.
Online Photography Summer Camps
NYFA’s online Photography camps teach students the fundamentals of digital photography.
In these 1 and 2-Week camps, kids learn the technical components of the camera and the aesthetic components of photography. These full-time, virtual camps are offered during the summer.
NYFA also offers in-person photography workshops during the academic year. These workshops are interactive experiences where kids learn the basics of photography.
In these hands-on programs, students learn under the virtual supervision of our experienced faculty, studying composition and controlling exposure, as well as editing techniques. These workshops are available on the weekends.
NYFA alumni often use the skills and confidence gained at NYFA’s camps and workshops to pursue creative interests in photography.
Please note that the successes of any NYFA alumni are the result of their individual hard work, perseverance, talent and circumstances. The New York Film Academy cannot guarantee that any future graduate will achieve similar success or secure a position in the industry.
