I wish I was between the age of 12 to 17 so I could take advantage of Cookie Photos summer camp located in the Pointe Claire Plaza. The camp promises to teach teens the art of photography in three one-week sessions starting July 6.
Each day the campers find themselves challenged in the ways of photography by Cookie Photos owner photographer Kathleen Girard herself. Challenges will include such things as finding geometric shapes in nature.
“The kids will set out each day to take pictures in nature with a set challenge,” Girard told WIB in an interview. “The next morning we will critique the assignments together and learn from that.”
The camp is geared towards students who wish to learn how to use their camera, phones or tablets in order to capture great moments, portraits, city and landscapes.
Students will practice the art of photography through exercises and field trips in and around the West Island. The youth will also learn to manipulate and print their creations in order exhibit them at the exhibit.
At the end of three one week sessions, Girard will hold a vernissage to show off all the work that has been achieved.
