Telling Stories Through Photography
Grab your camera and hit the streets of Toronto to experience photo-journalism first hand! In this program, students will develop an eye and the critical techniques required for capturing candid human emotion! With practical experience, students will discover how powerful photography can be to effectively communicate a message across and capture meaningful stories!
“This was so fun! I learned so much and I am excited to go out and try what I learned!”

Break the Rules
Now that you know the rules, let’s learn how to break them. In this first section of the camp, we’ll show you new compositional rules and how to master your camera settings to go beyond a proper exposure. Explore creative shooting techniques like long exposure photography and free lensing.
Photography is all about light and this unit covers many creative things we can do with it. Learn how to modify natural daylight with reflectors, how to capture bokeh in your background and to play with projection to take amazing portraits. We also do a super cool painting with light photo shoot where we black out an entire room and hand out flashlights to literally paint and draw with light!
Fields of Photography
Get inspired by the masters by learning about different genres of photography like wedding, photojournalism and conceptual art. Check out amazing current exhibits and events (past years have included the Andy Warhol exhibit, the Ryerson Image Centre and the Power Plant).
