Summer Photography Camps for Kids

Where Learning Photography is Fun!

I have always loved Photography! Making beautiful images is both my career and my relaxation! Its just plain fun for me!" .... Lloydlee Heite

Photography is more than just pointing and shooting, it's a decision making process.  In addition to being a fun way to express yourself, photography is a great way for you to look carefully at the world around you. We will be taking field trips and actually out and about shooting beautiful images! This is a very hands on camp and takes the camper from the actually taking of the image to cropping and correcting it on the computer to actually uploading it to the internet or printing it to paper!  All information will be presented in an age appropriate and FUN environment using games and activities that will teach the basic concepts of digital photography.  We Have some field trips as well as studio and computer worked planned. The day will also include free time, where campers will create a portfolio of their work including thoughts on their images. Cost includes all supplies and printing fees.
