Our camps are expanding this year, meaning we’re moving to a brand new downtown location! This summer we’ll be at the beautiful U of T campus at 150 Charles St. W. We’ll have an entire grassy campus to run around on while still being close to many great Toronto attractions. The ROM, Philosopher’s Walk, Yorkville and the busting streets of Yonge and Bloor are all within close walking distance!

YOUTH CAMP (Ages 9 – 12): Learn a lifelong skill of photography and have a blast doing it! Our Youth Camp introduces campers to their cameras and the fun things they can do with them. Art projects and hands on photography come together to give campers a unique learning environment where they get to explore both the creative and technical side to image making. Daily outdoor field trips get campers out and about to explore their imaginations.
TEEN CAMP 1 (Ages 13- 17): Teen Camp 1 teaches campers to use their cameras in full manual mode so that they can artistically and confidently capture the world around them. Daily outdoor excursions to many great Toronto locations encourage campers to practice aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Creative photo activities allow campers to have fun expanding their imaginations and a hands-on studio session gives them a taste of what a professional photo shoot looks like.
TEEN CAMP 2 (Ages 13 – 17): Do you want to be a daring photojournalist or trendy fashion photographer? Are you fascinated with photos of wildlife or people? Teen camp 2 let’s you explore the type of photographer you want to be by encouraging you to really push your creativity and develop a great portfolio of work. Campers are introduced to various fields of photography to get inspired and find their own passion. Experimental photography is also explored with activities like painting with light and shooting with trick perspectives to encourage teens to be creative in a unique way.
TEEN CAMP EDITING (Ages 13 – 17): The world of editing can take your great images to the next level! This completely practical camp will introduce teens to both Lightroom and Photoshop by covering all the key tools and creative adjustments in each program. Learn how to use colour filters to get the ‘wow factor’ or how to make a portrait magazine worthy! Fun projects will get campers to really expand their imaginations by showing them how they can create artistic images through special effects and layering. Campers will shoot and edit their photos individually and in group settings.
TEEN CAMP PORTRAITURE (Ages 13 – 17): Faces are fun! Whether they’re being silly, happy, serious or just plain crazy, this camp will teach teens how to capture people and their many expressions. We combine the idea of faces and places by taking campers to many scenic Toronto backdrops to photograph people in their best light. They’ll learn how to make the most of natural light in any situation and experiment with candid vs. posed portraiture. Campers will look at a variety of famous photographer’s work in order to mimic their style through their own interpretation.
