Kids Photography Camps

Let your kids set their creativity loose at the GPP's Kids Photography Camps! Our 5-day photography camps will teach your kids how to use a camera, work together for a shoot, and explore their imaginative ideas through photography.

What's Covered

At GPP, we believe that photography should be accessible to everyone. We make photography fun and educational for kids aged 10-16 at our photography camp! Students will get hands-on experience behind a camera and delve into the world of photography with the guidance of our instructor.

 

We’ll ease the students into compositional rules on the first day with an Intro to Mobile Photography workshop. Then we’ll take it up a notch and introduce them to DSLRs and mirrorless cameras with our Photography Level 1 and Level 2 workshops. Once they’ve mastered the basics, they’ll collaborate for an indoor shoot and work on their portraiture skills together. Combining everything we've learnt thoughout the week, we will build our own minature desert landscapes and create 'forced perspetive' still life images whilst incorporating long exposures and painting with light. 

 

Day 1: Mobile photography & editing apps

Day 2: Learning semi-manual camera modes (aperture priority mode and shutter priority mode)

Day 3: Going full manual mode

Day 4: Natural Light Portraiture (reflectors and diffusers)

Day 5: Creative DIY Lighting Portraiture & minature landscapes

 

By the end of the camp, your child will be able to express their creativity through photography, have fun through teamwork, and discover a new hobby.
