‚ÄúI‚Äôve 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.”

Best Summer Experience

Summer is a great time to explore, have fun and make new friends! We work hard to make each week not just about photography, but a real experience that the campers will never forget.

5-Star Reviews & Quality Instructors

Our instructors are excellent teachers, award winning photographers and have their work published! We consistently get 5 star reviews and listed as one of Toronto’s Top 10 Photography Schools by BlogTO.

We Were On TV & Radio!

You may of seen us on TV or heard us on air! Our director and instructors were invited to be photography mentors, and judges on CBC Kids’ reality TV Show, “Snapshots”. Most recently, we were on “Ontario Today” chatting about photography to CBC Radio 1 listeners.

Experiential Learning

We know learning doesn’t only apply in the classroom! To really make it ‚Äėclick‚Äô, we focus on experiential learning by getting campers to shoot outdoors and put the principles they learned into practice.

Outline

Summary
  • Capturing video with your DSLR
  • Different types of composition and shots
  • Learn about effects, tool and other adjustments in Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Introduction to colour grading, overlays, titles and textures
  • Developing a shot lists and themes
Videography

Many videos nowadays are filmed using DSLR cameras, making it easy for photographers to expand their skills and portfolio. We’ll show campers all the technical similarities and differences between capturing video and photos.

Composition

Getting the right angle is very important, not only in photography, but video as well! Campers will learn about different types of shots and their impact on telling a story through moving images.

Cutting and Editing Footage

Knowing how to effectively piece your video together is very important as it dictates how your story is told. Campers will get to learn how to colour grade, edit, stabilize and more using the available tools in Adobe Premiere Pro. We will also introduce a few new creative effects and editing techniques.

FAQ’s
How many campers are in your sessions?

We limit all kids programs to 12 campers and teen programs from 10 to 20 campers (depending on the program). Based on our experience, we have found that campers are able to grasp the concepts better in small class sizes. This allows them to ask questions as we go and get personal attention.

How do you address safety at your camp?

We take safety very seriously at GTA Photography. You can be sure that your child is in good hands. Here are just some of the measures we have taken to ensure the safety of your child:

  • Staff Qualified in First Aid / CPR: All of our instructors and counsellors are trained in First Aid and CPR and are able to treat minor injuries on site. Parents will be immediately notified in case of injury or illness.
  • High Instructor to Camper Ratio:¬†Our Kids Camp has a ratio of 2 staff to 12 campers. Our Teen Camps have a ratio of 2 staff to 15 campers.
  • Strict Pick up / Drop Off Policy:¬†We have a strict pick up / drop off policy; whereby, you provide us with the proper information on who is allowed to pick up your child and we ensure that they are released only to that individual.
  • Background Checks:¬†It is our policy that we conduct background and criminal checks on all staff members.
  • Risk Management Training:¬†All of our instructors and counsellors undergo thorough training in risk management and emergency procedures. All of our instructors and counsellors have cell phones and can be reached at any time.
How old does my child have to be to attend?

Kids Camp (8 ‚Äď 12) and Teen Camp (13 ‚Äď 17). ¬†If you have any questions regarding the age group, please feel free to¬†contact us.

How does pick up / drop off work?

We know that pick up and drop off times are busy for families.  We do everything we can to make it as smooth as possible for you.

At each location, we have designated pick up / drop off areas to allow for quick transitions.  Please consult your Parent Handbook for details.

All of our camps begin at 9:00 AM. Students should be dropped off 10 minutes prior to their start time. All of our camps end at 3:00 PM. Students should be picked up by 3:10pm. We provide Before / After care for our Kids & Teen Camps (8:00am to 5:30pm).

Please note that camp programming ends at 3:00pm. Simple activities and entertainment are provided during after care.

Do you offer financial aid or scholarships?

Yes!  We believe that every child should have access to camp and financial limitations should not be a factor when making the decision to go to camp. Every summer, we have a select number of spots that are open to students in need.

Deadline to apply for financial aid is March 20th. Campers will be notified if they were granted a spot by end of April. Please fill out the application below and email it back to us (info@gtaphotographyclasses.com) by the deadline.

What are your registration policies?

Policies:

  • Prepayment is required to confirm your registration and spot in the class / camp / workshop.
  • All sessions begin promptly at the stated time. Any missed material is forgone by the student.

Cancellation by Campers:

  • Cancellations are non-refundable whether the camper cancels or fails to show up for camp; however, if cancellation is received within¬†14 days¬†prior to the scheduled session, we will reschedule you to another session but a¬†$100 administration fee will apply.

Cancellation by GTAPC:

  • GTA Photography Classes reserves the right to cancel or postpone any camp¬†if there is inadequate enrolment. In the event that a camp¬†must be cancelled, you will be notified by email with adequate notice (please be sure to register using the email address where you can best be reached).
