Summer camps for 2021 are currently being planned for both in-person and online options. However, due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, NYFA will be unable to offer housing for in-person teen camps. Families will need to secure their own housing for campers and provide any necessary off-campus supervision, if traveling to a NYFA teen summer camp from another city, state or country. All after-school and weekend camps will be conducted online, until further notice. To view all camps and workshops offered, please click here.

1-Week Photography Camp for Teens

Locations: New York City, Los Angeles

The 1-Week Photography Camps for teens is an intensive exploration of still photography in the digital age. Summer campers receive hands-on instruction and experience with the tools necessary to research, compose, capture, and refine digital photographic projects. We encourage our students to be creative and to think of each project as a concise statement of artistic, documentary, journalistic, or commercial intent. Campers will learn professional techniques in practical labs, go on field trips to photograph an infinite variety of locations and subjects, and learn to use industry-standard digital imaging software.

Campers explore a full repertoire of light and shadow techniques with professional lighting, grip hardware, strobe lighting, and unconventional practical sources of light and shadow. Classes include lectures and demonstrations from professional photographers to enrich campers’ experience of working professional-grade studios. Students will present their work in class, creating a body of photographs of which they can be proud.

All 1-Week Photography students at our New York City or Los Angeles campuses are required to bring with them to the camp a digital camera with manual exposure control.
