Camp Summary

  • Learn all the controls to be able to shoot in manual mode
  • Composition guidelines and techniques
  • Creative techniques such as freezing motion, panning, zooming and more
  • How to maintain your camera
Manual Mode

Learning to shoot in full manual mode is so important to becoming a great photographer. Gaining full control over the camera means teens can create images exactly how they see them. In this camp, we teach campers everything they need to know about aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Teens will say goodbye to auto mode forever by learning how to become a master of their cameras and light meters. 


The visual and creative side to photography is just as important as the technical. In this section of camp, campers will be introduced to some key rules of composition so they can create visually stunning images that have that “wow” factor!


Receiving feedback on your work is always a great way to grow as an artist. Campers will have the opportunity to participate in a critique by sharing their top images from the week with their fellow peers and knowledgeable instructor. They’ll also get to practice giving feedback to others using the technical and compositional terminology they’ve used learned all week.

How many campers are in your sessions?

Virtual programs will run from 4 to 12 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.

When does registration close?

Registration is open until the Friday before the session begins. Please note that in prior years most of our camps have sold out months in advance. In order to guarantee enrolment, we recommend registering as soon as you know your schedule and at least a month in advance. Avoid the rush – register early and secure a spot!

What are your registration 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.

  • 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 $50 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).
