Teen Photo Workshops June 13-July 11

Saturdays from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m.
Various Locations
Come to one or all four!
Price: $45 each or $150 for all four
For teens ages 15-18
*** Limited to six students. Sign up quickly!
Bring your own camera. Any digital camera will do - it's the photographer, not the camera!

Call 263-7001 or email

June 13: Posing @ Avant-Garde studio (we may leave for a location shoot)
June 20: Lighting @ Cambier Park
June 27: Composition and Creativity @ Third St S
July 11: Basic Studio Lighting @ Avant-Garde studio
* Locations may change but most will start and finish at Avant-Garde studio on Linwood Ave.

This is a hands on workshop. You'll have an opportunity to photograph, light and pose the models. We'll end each workshop with a slideshow and critique. I know the critique part is scary - but it's a great way to learn!

Call to sign up today! If there is enough interest, we may offer this same set of workshops on a weeknight.
