Digital Photography Program
Feel like a professional photographer surrounded by out world-class facilities and endless content just waiting to be photographed. Hosting some of the biggest action sports professionals, olympic gymnasts, cheer and parkour athletes surrounded by a beautiful country backdrop, Woodward Camp is the ultimate photography playground. Our expert equipment and daily workshops help your creative dreams become a reality.
Instruction is based on your individual needs and ability. Your camp week may include learning basic to advanced composition, esposure (shutter speed and iso), focus, lighting, and computer editing software. Woodward's Digital Photography camp also provides you with the opportunity to work with some of the most current gear in the industry - fisheye and telephoto lenses, light meters, and professional flash equipment. No matter how experienced you are there's always something new you can learn.
Once we have jumped through your camera's operating settings our staff will dive into post editing software. Woodward works with the Apple iMacs and Adobe Creative Suite including Photoshop, Lightroom, and Bridge. We will cover various creative editing techniques to bring your imagery to life and cover stitching panos, creating sequences, merging multiple exposures into HDRs and even an intro to graphic design.
The subject of your photos are entirely up to you although our staff will also provide you with unique opportunities for you to shoot. Photography subjects at Woodward Camp are endless due to the variety of sports we offer and the level of talent that is at your fingertips on a daily basis. Our digital media program will set you up with various talented campers and professionals that attend every week. Over the years we have included our campers on various projects including shooting music videos, automobiles, fashion, parkour, hip-hop dancers, miniature set scenes, interviews, trick tips, war scenes, stop motion animation, comedy sketches, action sports, ballet and more. Come with your creativity and lets transform the facility into your vision.

Action Photography - Fashion and Portrait - Landscape - Panoramic - HDR (High Dynamic Range) - Long Exposures - Commercial and Advertisement
