Steamboat Photo Camp 2019 with Lizzie Larock

What is photo camp all about?
In photo camp, we’ll focus on how to “make” pictures instead of just “take” pictures.

We’ll chase light, create the abstract out of the every day and find new ways to see the world through the camera lens.

We’ll make the ordinary extraordinary using different angles, lighting and exposure settings.

We’ll also get the photos out of the digital camera and onto the wall!

We’ll conclude the summer session with a first Friday artwalk on September 6th at my downtown studio. In order to participate in the art show, your child must have attended 4 individual sessions.

Kids will also get one take-home print per session. In order to maximize our good light, summer events and time, we won’t be printing every single session, so if your child is going to miss the printing party, I will make the print for your child (of his/her choosing) and you can pick it up at my studio.

Each session is 4 hours long, times will vary depending on the activity and daylight. Your 4 sessions do not need to be in a row, pick and choose the dates that work for you. I will offer 1 makeup class in September for 10-session kids who have to miss a session.

What your child will learn:

Exposure, composition, creative shooting techniques, perspective, angles and how to best capture light. We’ll learn how to shoot better with our phones and our DSLRs. We’ll understand the difference between “taking” pictures and “making” pictures. I’ll be teaching your kids how to use curiosity and a growth mindset to increase their innovation and creativity. Your child will also be encouraged to use the creative process to develop and articulate their own signature photographic style to make original artwork.

Who this is for:

This is for the adolescent or teen who is passionate about photography. Your child has shown an interest in the art of taking pictures and is excited to learn tools to improve their images. It’s certainly a helpful plus if they’ve taken photography with me in the past, but it’s not a pre-requisite. Ages 12-16. If you do not have a DSLR camera, let me know. I have 3 that I can loan out during our sessions. 

PRICE (you can pay by check: Larock Star Creative, LLC or pay via credit card using the links below):

$65 for an individual session (additional fees if you sign up for the rodeo event on July 27. No additional fees for other shoots).

$250 for 4 sessions (they do not need to be in a row)

$475 for 8 sessions (they do not need to be in a row)

$550 for 10 sessions (there will be 1 makeup in September for 10 session students)

*Sessions do not need to be in a row, you do need to have attended 4 sessions throughout the summer to participate in the First Friday Artwalk on September 6 (the artwalk does not count as a session and there's no charge for participating in it). All sessions must be used up by September 6, 2019, except 10-session students will be notified of 1 makeup session offered in September.

Included in each 4-session package: photo instruction, editing lessons, 4 enlarged prints on archival paper, inclusion of 1-2 prints (depending on how many students we have) in the First Friday Artwalk on September 6, 2019

(your child does not need to do 4 or 8 in a row).
Please note that times may need to change slightly depending on the event. 10 session students will have the opportunity for 1 makeup class that I will offer in September.
