Conceptual Photography & Film Photography
Create artistic images using digital and film cameras! In this program, students will discover photography as a tool for creative expression and visit contemporary art galleries for inspiration! Students will have the opportunity to experiment with 35 mm film cameras (provided) and be able to review their negatives as scans. At the end of the week, favourite shots will be printed for keepsake and exhibited in a gallery form at our exhibit!
“I’ve had so much fun at this camp and made so many friends! I really enjoyed the field trips and all the fun games we played. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and I will be back next summer.”
– Isabelle | GTA Photography Camper 2017
