If you are registering for the "Creative" photography class, any digital camera will work. If you have any questions about what your camera is, please do not hesitate to contact tracy@camppixelproject.com


Scholarships:

It is our intention that no camper feel prohibited from signing up due to a lack of equipment or funds. For this reason, we have computers and cameras available to either rent or borrow, depending on your unique financial situation. Scholarships may also be available for certain weeks for campers whose financial situation prohibits them from otherwise attending. Please contact Tracy to inquire.

Bring a snack or lunch and water each day!

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT FOR CLASS:

PHOTOGRAPHY: The very first lesson given in the photography class is how to hold and handle a camera properly and how to keep it safe.

  • Depending on which week(s) you attend, you will either need a DSLR camera, or a more simplistic digital camera. If you are registering for the "Technical" photography class, you need a DSLR camera. If you are registering for the "Creative" photography class, any digital camera will work. A digital camera is any camera that does not use film and instead renders a digital image on a screen for immediate feedback. Even camera phones count! A DSLR camera is a bit more complicated and typically has more settings and interchangeable lenses. If you have any questions about what your camera is, please do not hesitate to contact tracy@camppixelproject.com.

  • If you do not own a DSLR, you have some options. If photography is something you/your child wants to pursue and you want to purchase a camera, Tracy can help you decide on an inexpensive DSLR starter camera. We also have a small selection available for rent. Please contact tracy@camppixelproject.com for additional information.

  • Accessories to camera such as padded camera bag, strap, memory card, charged battery, tripod (optional-if you have one) etc.
