Academy Mask Policy – Fall 2021

 

Any student under the age of 18 will be required to wear a mask for the duration of their camp/class. For any participant age 18+, masks are highly recommended and encouraged regardless of vaccination status.

 


This is a 4-week class covering the basics of digital photography. We discuss camera settings, lens choices, lighting, editing, and photographic styles. This includes in studio and on location scenarios. Demonstrations, and opportunities for hands on experience are through the course. We want everyone to be comfortable with their camera and excited to go and make images on their own.

If you have access to a camera please bring it, however having a camera is not necessary to attend the class.
