This summer, Gulf Photo Plus and Canon Middle East are teaming up to bring you an unmissable offer. When you sign up your child for our 5-day photography summer camp, you will receive a free kit from Canon, including Canon EOS 4000D DSLR Camera, an 18-55mm lens, and a Canon SELPHY CP1300 Wireless Compact Photo Printer! Give your child the gift of a new creative skill and the gear to keep their new hobby going, with Canon Juniors Academy.
This summer, we’re making photography fun and educational for kids aged 10-12 at the Canon Juniors Academy Summer Camp! Students will receive a Canon photography kit and get hands-on experience with their brand new Canon DSLR camera, while delving into the world of photography with the guidance of expert instructors.
We’ll ease students into compositional rules on the first day with our beginner's Photography Level 1 workshop and learn to print pictures instantly with their brand new Canon Selphy printer. Then we’ll take it up a notch and introduce them to the manual features of their Canon DSLRs cameras. Once they’ve mastered the basics, they’ll collaborate for an indoor shoot, work on their portraiture skills and create miniature photography sets together.
Day 1: Basic photography and printing with the Canon Selphy CP1300
Day 2: Learning semi-manual camera modes (aperture & shutter priority mode)
Day 3: Full-manual camera modes, exhibition collaging & cyanotypes
Day 4: Natural light portraiture (with reflectors and diffusers)
Day 5: Creative DIY lighting portraiture & miniature set building
By the end of the Young Storytellers summer program, your child will own a professional Canon camera and printer kit, be able to express their creativity through photography, have fun through teamwork and discover new skills. Who knows, maybe they can even teach you a thing or two!
