The following list of classes are listed by level. Each session is a complete class.

All Levels
Classes that are open to all skill sets and mediums.

Introductory
Classes that cover the basics of camera based photography, i.e. basic camera functions, composition and digital workflow. A great first step for those new to photography.

Intermediate
Classes that cover the next steps in learning the camera, photo basics and digital manipulation. Perfect for the photographer who already knows aperture, shutter speed, and how to control them on their camera and is familiar with Photoshop. A good fit for the photographer who is ready to learn a bit more control with using the camera and computer to correct images.

NEW Special Topics
Classes that cover a wide range of topics and techniques: from state-of-the-art digital to historic, hands-on processes & contextual discussions. These classes are perfect for the photographer looking to create or improve a body of work and/or to learn new techniques. While a basic understanding of photography is necessary for most of the special topics classes, they are not restricted to advanced students, instead, they are open to all photographers with a desire to gain new insights into photographic processes.

Photo Camps!
This isn’t your normal summer camp! At HCP’s Summer Camps, you’ll spend your summer learning how to master your photography skills. We’ll teach you the basics and beyond: learn processing software (Photoshop, Lightroom and Bridge) and how to fine tune your pictures.

You’ll learn how to capture your surroundings and never lose a moment: Discover portraiture and performance, storyboard, layout, and how to visually interpret your surroundings not just using your eyes, but using all your senses. HCP’s Summer Camp will also teach you about the history of photography while you build your own collection of great photos.

Summer Camps include lectures, hands-on activities, creative writing, indoor and outdoor photographic sessions, editing, and group discussions. You don’t even need photographic experience. So if you’re interested in photography, what better way to spend your summer?
