Focus On Nature

Aspiring shutterbugs can develop their skills by participating in a photography-inspired camp. Each week long session will include a special visit from a Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Campers will learn about photo composition and storytelling, venture to Beacon Hill Park to capture dynamic nature shots, explore the Royal BC Museum’s Natural History collection and have their work included in a mini-Wildlife Photographer of the Year inspired display.

No fancy camera needed, but campers need to be familiar with how their own camera works.

Lunch and snacks not provided.
