Imagine the stories a child could tell after a day spent surrounded by nature with a camera in hand!

Through a series of fun photo challenges and a scavenger hunt, your child will learn about the basic functions of a camera, how to find your frame, texture, and the different perspectives a photo can create. Our walks will take us through mossy forests, waterfalls or through abandoned railway tunnels.

Who should take this course?

Beginner to intermediate photographers are encouraged; the course covers a broad range of subjects and every skill level will learn something new. Adults are encouraged to participate in the program with their child.

What you’ll learn

We will cover the basic functions of a camera, how to find your frame, the different perspectives you can create, and how to time your subject in action. At the end of the day, you will be able to tell a story through a series of photographs.
