Photo Camp FAQ

What is your schedule for the week?
Upon enrollment, you will receive a sample schedule outlining what our week may look like, along with our Camper Parent Handbook. We’ll be happy to answer questions if you would like to give us a call here: 310-463-6277.

Where is drop off and pick up?
We spend 2-3 days at the studio and 2-3 days on location.
Monday and Friday are always at the studio in Atwater.
When our location is far (The Getty, Santa Monica Pier, etc,) we meet at the studio and drive to location in our van.
When our location is near (Griffith Park, DTLA, etc,) we drop off and pick up at the location.
**
* drop off and pick up on any given day is always at the same location.

Camp pick up is at 3pm. We have a grace period of 15 minutes.
We charge a full hour of Extended Care after 3:15.

My camper has their own camera…
It is important that each camper start the day with:
1. An empty digital card. Please ensure there are no personal photos on the card.

2. A fully charged battery.

Do we get to keep the photos my child made during the week?
Yes, absolutely! We will send you a link to a private gallery with all photos from all campers.

Do you offer day rates?
Yes, we offer partial weeks at $150/day.

Do you offer aftercare?
The camp day runs from 9am-3pm.
– Extended Care (EC) is available for $50/hour.
– Requests for EC must be received prior to the beginning of camp that day.
– EC is available when we are at the studio in Atwater Village.
– When we are on location, EC is available with a signed Vehicle Liability Waiver.
– Early drop off begins at 8:30am.
– Late pick up ends at 5pm.

What if my child misses a day during the week?
If you anticipate missing a day during the week, we encourage you to sign up for a partial week.

Does my child need to be vaccinated?
As of January 2021, CA state regulation requires that all campers be fully vaccinated.

Does my child need a camera to attend camp?
No, we have extra cameras, which campers can use; DSLRs as well as Point & Shoots.
It’s ideal if campers bring their own cameras.
But if not, we have you covered. DSLRs are $10/day, point & shoots are free to use.
There is a deposit to cover damage of equipment. DSLR: $250, Point & Shoot: $150

What kind of camera should I buy my child?
If you’re thinking of getting your camper a camera of their own, here are some of the cameras we recommend.
Two things to consider when viewing our list:
1. This list is only for beginners, we are not including more advanced cameras
2. Prices may vary – We highly recommend looking at KEH to find quality used equipment that you can depend on.

Our criteria: Ease of Use, Cost to Quality Ratio

 

My kid has special needs…
Our first priority is to keep your child safe. At this time, we can not care for kids with disabilities, in accordance with CA state regulations. If you have questions, please call us and talk to us directly about your child’s specific needs. It is critical that we understand your child’s needs prior to coming to camp.
