All images on this page were taken by the students in our previous Youth Photography Program.
Do you have a budding photographer that you want to encourage this winter break? Join Hunt’s Photo Education for a week-long photography program aimed at strengthening their interest, improving their photography, and getting them truly excited about being the artist, the creator, and the family photographer!
Over the course of five days, we will cover a wide range of topics, from composition & perspective to depth of field & movement. Every day we’ll have a brief introduction to a topic followed by a fun practical exercise. Our goal is to get your photographers outside and taking pictures as much as possible! (Inside on snowy and cold days, too.) At the end of the day, we’ll look back on the images to see what we liked about them. And at the end of the week, we’ll print and display images from all of our students in our Hunt’s Photo Gallery for all to see.
Our goal in this program is to have a lot of fun and not bog students down with too much technical stuff. However, we will also scaffold instruction, so if an attendee wants to know more about the technical aspects, they still can!
Students will be required to have some kind of camera. This can be a cell phone, a point and shoot camera, or a DSLR/mirrorless camera. Pretty much any digital camera that works is acceptable!
This will be a fun week with experienced instruction. We look forward to seeing you there!
*A few notes about our recommended age requirements*
Our age requirement is very general. A certain maturity level is helpful. Younger children with interest and a level of responsibility are welcome to attend. As we mention, we will scaffold instruction for any age range.
All parents/guardians will need to sign off on a permission to attend this course upon signup.
