Summer Photography Camp for Kids & Teens: (Ages 9-16) 
Are your kids constantly taking pictures with their smart phone or the camera they received as a gift? Does your child have a creative flare, but just needs a little help expressing it? If so, you may have the next Ansel Adams on your hands! If your child loves taking photographs of family and friends, special events or just for fun; please fuel their passion by sending them to our summer photography camp. We will teach your child to many aspects of the art of photography. Varying camps will cover basic concepts such as rules of composition, motion, lighting, focus, perspective, color & tones and textures. We will be covering various types of photography: action, sports, fashion, macro, street, landscape, abstract, portrait, nature, wildlife, photojournalism and special topics classes.We will cover how a camera works and which setting are best for specific photographic situations. We'll teach simply yet powerful tricks that will take your child's photography to the next level. Every child will have a tremendous amount of fun and will leave camp as a better photographer.  Our camps are designed to teach real world skills that allow every child to express their individual creativity and to develop their own artistic style and vision. Additionally, each child will grow as a person, learn how to work with others as a team and hopefully make many new friends with similar interests along the way. Each of our camps are one week long. Our camps-are for photographers ages 9 to 16 years of age.

On-Line "VIRTUAL" Summer Photography Camp
Our Virtual Summer Photography Camps keep your child engaged and inspired, all from the safety of your home. No need to worry about social distancing or mask-wearing during our virtual camps. We will teach the same course material as in our regular on-location camps and these virtual camps will be kept small so that we can give more individual attention to each child.

Why not also have your child’s friend sign-up as well? This is a great way for them to participate in a social activity along with their school and neighborhood friends at a safe distance.

These virtual camps are being offered at a super affordable price for just $229.00 per week for ages 8 & up.
