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.
What are the pick up and drop off times?
The photography camp runs from Sunday to Thursday 9:00am–12:00pm, with drop off starting from 8:45am and pick up ending at 12:15pm.
Will GPP provide lunch and/or transport?
Campers must pack their own food each day. There is water and a fridge in the GPP kitchen which students are free to use. Students are not allowed to leave GPP premises to purchase food from an establishment in Alserkal Avenue. Transport is not provided.
How many students are in the group, and is my child the right age?
Each camp will have a maximum number of 12 students and spaces are reserved on a first come first serve basis. There is one instructor plus 1-2 assistants for each camp. The photography camps are divided between ages 10-12 and 13-16 respectively. We cannot modify groups based on children’s or parents’ wishes.
