Is there a summer camp out there for teens interested in photography? My 13 yo is very interested-thanks! shutterbug's mom
My son is 14 and already a good photographer but he would like to take a class this summer. We tried to enroll him at Laney but due to the budget cuts high school students can no longer take summer classes there (or any I think?). We live in San Leandro so I would like a class in the area, or Oakland or Berkeley. He is too young for the CCA Atelier program and the dates for their middle school program don't work. He has time the end of June and all of July. He's interested in ANY type--b&w, color, darkroom, digital, etc... Do you have any suggestions? THANKS!
I am desperate to find a photography class for my 13 year old daughter. She has NO PLANS for the whole summer because she refuses to do anything without a friend. The only thing she seems to be interested in is photography and I have not been able to find any classes for teens in the Walnut Creek or Lamorinda areas for her age group. Any ideas? I'm feeling desperate, especially because she is boy crazy and needs something else to focus on over the summer. HELP!
I am interested in learning more about professional portrait photography. Has anyone taken a great class they can recommend? Do you know any photogrpahers who would be willing to take on an apprentice? Thanks!
I have a 1940s Rolleiflex view camera that used to belong to my father. I would love it if a photographer out there could help me learn how to use it. It needs some minor repairs (I could use some advice regarding where to get it fixed, as well) but after it's up and running I would really like some tutoring in its use. It's a beautiful camera and I would love to use it. Are there any Rolleiflex experts out there? Susan
Hi! I'm in desparate need of somebody or someplace that can give me a lesson on how to use a 4x5 view camera. If anybody knows of a class or even a person (I'd gladly pay them for their time) that would be willing to give a lesson, please contact me as soon as possible at the following numbers. Thank you so much.
Studio One in North Oakland offers a teen photography class Mondays 4-6 They also have adult classes later in the eve that are open to teens. My 14yr daughter is taking the calss now and is enjoying it. lynn
Laney College has summer photography and will allow teens in their classes. Classes start June 19th. 4 hour classes 3 times a week. Cost is cheap maybe $15-30 http://laney.peralta.cc.ca.us/ 834-5740 900 Fallon St Oakland
UC Berkeley extension also has photography classes starting June 8 - Aug 10, 3hr classes once a week $460.( ouch) I have not yet confirmed that they allow teens. http://www.unex.berkeley.edu
The photographer who owns Albany Arts on Solano Ave also gives private color photography. classes. If you find anything else please let me know. we have not made a decision yet as I am waiting on Studio One.
UC Extension does allow teens in their classes. My daughter took a drama class there and a co-worker's son has taken several creative writing classes. Their experience was wonderful, particularly because they got a lot of attention for being so young from the other students. The dynamics are certainly different in a mixed age class and my daughter learned a lot from being exposed to people of all ages many of whom were impressed by her age and the fact that she was taking an adult class seriously. She was also exposed to a class in which every single student there was more than interested in learning and participated and cared. New experience for her! Lynn
San Francisco Parks and Rec runs a program for teens at the city darkroom at the Harvey Milk Recreation Center on Duboce Street. It runs about 2 or 2.5 hours 3 days a week, I think for 3 week sessions. There are at least 2 sessions. Easily accessible by public transportation.
The Friends of Photography at the Ansel Adams Photography Center runs a separate program, also held at Harvey Milk, starting in late June for either 2 or 3 weeks, 3-6 pm, called "High School Docents," which involves a lot of darkroom work. Both these programs are free, I believe. 415-495-7000x312
The San Francisco Art Institute has art courses for high school students, including different levels of photography, color as well as b&w. Four weeks, 3 hours/class, $400/class. This is a highly reputed program, also accessible by public transportation. 415-749-4554
One sleepaway option is Idyllwild Summer Arts Program in the Southern Calif desert. It sounds incredible -- 6 hours/day, living in a teenage artist colony. I found them on the web after being recommended by some local art teachers. Two week sessions.
I'm interested in taking a beginning photography course mainly dealing with black and white photos. Does anyone have any recommendations of schools, classes, instructors in the area? Kate
