August 21-24th 2017

  • $1000.00 covers your sleeping accommodations for 4 days + 3 nights.
  • On-site chef preparing 3 home-cooked meals daily for all dietary needs.

  • B&W film processing on site and taught by Roger Ellsworth including all of your darkroom chemicals.
  • Archival photo paper and ink for your final project to be printed on up to 17x24.
  • Use of lighting equipment, gels, and incredible film cameras (like Hasselblads Mamiya's) borrowed from our  friends at Fotocare.
  • Camp Counselors to assist you hands on with lighting, shooting, scanning, printing, critique, and what ever  else you need.  
  • One male/female model (Rijard + Ashley - see Camp Counselors in the FAQ) and a pro makeup artist. 
  • New friends, late night bonfires, conquering personal struggle, and hopefully the feeling of self-satisfaction and  empowerment that everyone leaves with after completing a personal project and seeing it hung on the wall  like it's supposed to! 
  • All campers are welcome to stay and chill with us until Friday at no extra cost.  Home-cooked meals will  not be provided on the 25th. 
  • All Campers are required to stay for the entire duration - no partial stays / leaving early, sorry!
