Camp V is a combination of photography and camp for adults.
You have a camera -- new or old. You have the desire to take better photos. You don't just want a few lucky shots. You want to know your camera well and learn more about making consistently good images. You admit to being a bit overwhelmed by the pace of change within the photography industry. You may have turned to an instructional video and found an enthusiastic young guy who produces outstanding work, speaks at the rate of caffeine, and has an arsenal of gear that just got released for public use. You've thought about subscribing to his videos or channels but his goals and your goals don't mesh.

No doubt, the online instructor makes outstanding images. They're just not the kind of images you're interested in making of having, and you don't have his updated gear. You want solid family images, some landscapes, some travel shots. You'll dabble with some artistic shots but won't be consumed by them. You know that there are moments in life which only present themselves once. At times there no do-overs. You don't need rock star images; you also don't want ho-hum ones. You want to give honor, a bit of artistry and personality to the images you make. You want your photos to tell a story -- your story, not his.
Welcome to Camp V. "V" as in Veronica. More on the name in a bit.

At Camp V we offer courses for beginners, re-starters, and more advanced photographers. We cover topics from the start to the completion of your projects, either in class, in one-on-one workshops, online, on the road, or through referrals to other photo instructors, nearby associations, and other resources.
Have a look at our classes below. If a class doesn't have a projected start date, please email or call to let us know of your interest.
Why Camp V? Veronica, "ver" "icon" = true image. Veronica is considered the patron saint of photographers. She's known for a compassionate gesture. We like niceness. Some people say she didn't exist; others venerate her. In the end, long after she had lived, she is still known for an image she captured and the story it told. You could be known for the images you make as well.
