Fashion Photography with a DSLR (ages 14-17)
Starts June 26
Monday–Friday, June 26–30, 12–4 pm
Learn how to plan and produce a fashion shoot! We’ll look at the work of current and classic fashion photographers such as Craig McDean, Viviane Sassen, Mark Borthwick and Irving Penn to inspire us. We’ll plan the location, lighting, and overall mood for a shoot that will highlight clothing made by local designers, worn by local models. We’ll also plan other shoots utilizing classmates and found objects that we transform into fashion. Objectives include developing clear communication skills, preproduction planning, idea execution, artistic direction of your model, and creating a small online portfolio of the shoot. Please bring each day a digital SLR camera (with manual settings), a minimum 4GB memory card, a charged battery, and at least one lens.

A check will be issued for registrations that were paid in cash. In lieu of a refund, students have the option of applying their tuition to another camp if scheduled in the same calendar year.
- For those wishing to cancel a registration prior to the registration deadline, 100% of the tuition will be refunded minus a $25 administrative fee. For registration cancellations received after the registration deadline but prior to the first camp session, 50% of the tuition will be refunded minus a $25 administrative fee. As of a camp start date, no refunds or credits/exchanges will be given.
