Explore photography fundamentals, visual storytelling and play with light!

4 workshops 

Calling all aspiring young shutterbugs! Explore photography during the upcoming school holidays with our Young Photographers Camp.

Through this series of workshops, participants will learn photography fundamentals and experience photography as an avenue for visual storytelling and creative self-expression.

These workshops are recommended for ages 8 to 16. No prior experience is required, and all materials will be provided. Participants can bring their own cameras if they wish.

What is visual storytelling? In this workshop, we will look at photo stories and learn how to plan a photo story. Using toys and our environment, we will practise making a photo story, and edit our completed stories together to see how we can make them more interesting. Don’t hesitate to bring along your favourite toys! After this workshop, you’ll be equipped with basic skills to tell photo stories about the world around you.
Did you know you can ‘paint’ with light? In this workshop, we will look at how light is captured when we use different shutter speeds on a camera. This is known as long exposure photography. We will learn about the role of light in photography, and how to set up a camera on a tripod. Then, it’s time to use your imagination to ‘paint’ what you’d like, and capture it on camera!
In the days before digital cameras, there were pinhole cameras. Learn to make your very own camera using everyday materials and see how photographs are developed.
We begin with a guided shoot in our neighbourhood where you’ll capture whatever strikes you. After that, get your photos printed and turn them into your very own photo zine!
