High School Photography Day Camp

The UCO Department of Mass Communication will host the ninth annual week-long Photography Day Camp for high school students in the summer of 2023. 

The camp aims to provide students with a better understanding of photography’s many genres and offers a preview of Central’s photography program. Lessons feature traditional portraiture, through the use of high-end lighting equipment in a professional studio; fashion photography, with field trips to various off-campus locations; black and white film photography and darkroom techniques; and Photoshop and digital printing. The week’s events will close with a gallery exhibition of the student’s work.
