Summer Camps

 

These aren’t your average summer camps and for 2019, we’ve redesigned them! At HCP’s Summer Camps, you’ll spend your summer learning how to master your photography skills through two different program options. Each camp is now limited to eight participants only, to ensure an enhanced learning experience. You’ll learn the basics and beyond: develop your basic photo making skills, learn processing software (Adobe’s Photoshop, Lightroom and Bridge) to fine tune your pictures, and explore special topics for an entire week.

Learn how to capture your surroundings and never lose a moment: Discover portraiture and performance, storyboard, layout, and how to visually interpret the world around you not just using your eyes, but using all your senses. HCP’s Summer Camp will teach you about the history of photography while you build your own collection of great photos. Learn to make fun videos, GIFs, works with stop motion, portraits and even fashion!

Summer Camps include lectures, hands-on activities, creative writing, indoor and outdoor photography sessions, editing, and group discussions. You don’t even need experience with a camera. So if you’re interested in photography, what better way to spend your summer?

See available camps below.
