a teen photography camp where we learn by doing
This Summer camp is unique in that we will be learning by doing. From day one, we'll shooting with cameras, working with real subjects and applying knowledge to meaningful projects. We'll be side-by-side with each other so that as one person learns, we all learn.
AN EXPERIENCE THAT WILL LAST
Campers leave the Photo Camp with professional experience that can be used to get into university art programs, art colleges, free lance jobs and the knowledge to start their own photography business.
SELF-DISCOVERY, SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL AND INTELLECTUAL GROWTH
Research shows that the most effective educational experiences are one's that emphasize the process rather than product. This camp allows students to experiment with what they want to create, at the same time collaborating with peers who have different desires, passions and dreams. In turn, campers get an incredible learning experience that develops empathy, critical thinking, excellence and problem solving.
I'm a professional photographer and photography educator who has a thriving photography business. I have my BFA in Special Education and MFA in Educational Media Production where I studied film and photography. I believe that it's important to have real world experience on a subject before you can teach it to others and that's why after tens years of teaching and photography, I've created the Photo Camp. I've made a ton of mistakes and learned many hard lessons during my time as a photographer and I'm open in sharing those with campers.
