Spend a week in Downtown Grapevine at a hands-on interactive camp where you'll learn about color theory, light, perspective, camera mechanics, and more... all while creating amazing images of the things YOU enjoy! 

Each day of the four-day camp will focus on a different photography genre, and those who stay for the afternoon session will learn practical and creative Adobe Photoshop techniques to take their images to the next level. 

Your final artwork will be on display at a fancy summer GALLERY NIGHT where friends and family can OOOOHHHH and AAAAAHHHHH at your talent.

Laura can also assist campers in entering their images in the Big Tex Creative Arts competition should they choose to do so. In 2022, ALL FOUR rookie campers who entered their photographs received awards for their work and were put on display at at the State Fair of Texas!

👦  The photography lessons are super fun and perfect for kids age 8-14. Challenges are open-ended, allowing me to help each child succeed regardless of experience, age, or camera type. If your child is outside of this agerange, please email me to see if/how we can accommodate in a way that makes them comfortable and successful.


📸  Campers will provide their own camera and bring it home each day. Any camera will work! Cell phone cameras are perfectly acceptable, but I will have the students keep their device in airplane mode during class hours.


🗓️  Each session is limited to 8 campers. New dates will not be added until all three sessions fill up.


🌎  We will abide by the Golden Rule this summer! In addition to copyright and consent conversations, campers will learn to respect and encourage one another as they grow in their art form. There will be time for each person to give and receive feedback and affirmation each dayGallery Night is strictly celebratory, but for those who would like to enter competition, Laura will help facilitate entries at the 2023 State Fair of Texas.


 Part of my mission is helping people in 2024 appreciate PRINTED photography! Campers will learn how to create AND display photographic artwork. On Friday, July 26 students, families, and the public will gather to the studio-turned-gallery and appreciate the art and artists. Dress up, take pictures, and celebrate your famous photographer!
