Summer Camp - Intro to Photography

Do you know a young budding photographer who is looking for an opportunity to explore their photographic interest in a unique hands-on setting? Want to give them a chance to develop their creative skills with the help of a professional photo educator? Henry's Learning Lab has the answer!

The Learning Lab Summer Camp is a one day, 8 hour camp that will introduce and develop photographic skills in a fun and exciting environment.

We'll explore many of the fundamental concepts & techniques required to develop photographic skills. Students will experience both the practical and artistic sides of photography. Your child will discover the history of photography through the construction of their own pinhole camera. We'll then expose them to a range of photographic techniques and styles, including portraiture, landscape photography, macro and more. Students will have a chance to put their new skills into practice right away, photographing various subjects and exploring some exciting digital equipment in a fun, interactive, hands-on environment. We're looking forward to meeting you!
