Kids Photography Camps

In Summer 2019, I started offering photography camps made just for kids! What a fun way to learn how to take pictures!! Camps are geared towards grades K-5 or 6-11 .

Kids will learn how to use a camera, the basic principles of light, how to take a good portrait, the concept of still life photos, the proper format of a landscape, history of photography, photo selection, basic editing and gallery hanging.
