Welcome to Photo Camp – Virtual Edition!

Atwater Photo Camp is now offering weekly online adventures in photography: Virtual Photo Camp. We’ve had to modify a lot of what we do in regular Photo Camp, but all the underlying  principles remain the same. Spring Camp was wild success and Summer 2020 is going to be even better! 

We’re super excited about the summer sessions, with all new games and activities designed to help us learn about camera and light and ultimately help us see in entirely new ways.

What is Virtual Photo Camp?

Photo Camp begins with a basic overview of
Photography: Camera & Light.

Daily themes in three sessions: 9am, 12pm & 3pm PST

Morning Session:
review our images, introduce lesson or concept & discuss

Morning Activities:
challenges, games & projects to support the topic

At 11:45, campers upload images

Mid Day Session:
review the morning, and introduces next lesson.

Two more activities

2:45 upload images

Afternoon Session:
recaps the day and suggests ideas for the next morning
__________________________________________________

Through this process we challenge the way we see; we learn through instruction and practice how to make images, rather than take them. Ultimately campers develop their photographic eye and learn new ways of seeing.

Photo Camp counselors are working photographers who have been in the industry for years, and with experience in education and childhood development, they understand how to ignite passion and curiosity within a non-competitive environment.

Photography is a practice of observation and awareness; it is an exploration and perhaps a discovery of perspective. It is also a language to express ourselves. This year has forced us to reframe just about everything, and we always encourage new points of view.

All are welcome, please join us!
