Virtual Summer Photography Camp

© Ryunosuke Kikuno

Houston Center for Photography is proud to introduce our Online Summer Camps for upper elementary and middle school students (rising 5th-8th graders). Join us to be inspired, develop your photography skills, and build confidence through making. Have fun learning how to use your digital camera to compose great photographs while viewing your environment from new perspectives. Discover scientific concepts while creating cyanotypes out in the sun. Explore the techniques of portraiture and light painting and even create your own website! No prior experience is needed. This online camp will include daily lessons, and check-ins with your class and instructor at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm via our online learning platform. In addition to those meetings, students will be provided with exclusive videos and worksheets to help students work on photography projects from home.
