If your child is interested in photography, we have a wonderful way for them to spend their summer. They don’t even need photographic experience! At HCP’s Summer Camps, kids will spend the summer learning to master photographic skills. To succeed in the camp they must be 3 things: interested, imaginative and teachable! Our Summer Camp offers the basics and beyond: learn processing software (Photoshop, Lightroom and Bridge) and how to fine tune pictures. Campers will learn how to capture their surroundings and never lose a moment: Discover portraiture and performance, storyboard, layout, and how to visually interpret surroundings --- using ALL your senses. Instructors make use of a variety of teaching techniques. Camps include lectures, hands-on activities, creative writing, indoor and outdoor photographic sessions, editing, and group discussions. While students build their own collection of great photos, HCP’s Summer Camp instructors will explore the rich history of the photographic art form and connect that with the work created by the students participating in camp activities.
