The 1-Week Online Photography Summer Camp for kids is an exciting and intensive exploration of digital photography. During the 1-week program, students will learn the technical components of the camera and the aesthetic components of photography, utilizing natural light and found light sources in the home. Students will need a digital camera (for use during camp) and will learn to edit their images on Adobe editing software, under the guidance of teachers who are working industry professionals.

We encourage our students to be creative and explore as they learn to use the tools and the visual language of photography. Upon completion of the summer photography program, a graduation ceremony will be held that will include a slideshow of the students’ best 3-5 shots.
