Photo Camp DC 2016


Turn your budding photographer loose this summer during our PhotoTour DC Teen Photo Camp and learning excursions.

Teens will learn photography principles through a combination of photo talks and practice in the field. Each day, there will be a photography lesson and preview of the day's adventure before we take off on our excursion. In the field, students work on the assignment of the day with coaching from a professional photographer. Feedback sessions of their best pictures will complete the learning cycle.

This is a summer camp that is sure to inspire beginning photographers and challenge aspiring professionals.
