Camp Testimonials

 

Sarah - Parent


Our teenage daughter spent a week at Mark’s Photo Camp and loved it! She learned a lot, met new friends, and really enjoyed the camp that Mark put together. Highly recommend working with Mark in any capacity!

Ashton - Camper


In this camp I was able to experience different ways to have a job focusing on photography, which was very helpful! I had never shot studio art or couples (or anything in a controlled environment) before and it was a great experience. Before this camp I thought I wouldn’t like doing that because I thought I was more of a landscape person, but actually I almost liked controlled photos more! This has opened me up to different styles and has made me consider using photography in my career now!Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity! I will definitely recommend this camp to other people interested in photography!

JORDAN - CAMPER


This week I learned so much about my camera settings and photography in general. My favorite thing that we did was light painting because, I found it so interesting that a completely dark room, a light, and a camera with a slow shutter speed can create such a an amazing image.

AVA - CAMPER


This camp definitely helped prepare me for my photo 1 and media/design classes that I’m taking this year. Learning how to work the camera and manipulate light is a skill that I’m going to use often. I’m glad i got to get a head start to my art classes.

This camp was an extremely fun experience and I know I will use the editing tips, photo composition and all of the different skills we learned for photographing the different styles of photography. Thank you so much for being a great teacher all week!
