Be an Artist!


Learn how to use a digital SLR camera in auto and advanced modes and skill up on image editing in Adobe Lightroom to create photographic art and capture stories about nature. Compelling photography can bring joy and change community attitudes!


IMAgEN8 will loan a digital SLR camera, conduct workshops and webinars, give assignments and provide photography mentors for this 6-month program. Learn about auto, aperture priority, shutter priority modes on the camera, learn how to shoot in low light, learn about composition (subject choice, framing, rule of thirds), aperture, depth of field, quality of light and what makes images stand out. Learn how to select your best images, use presets, vignette, cropping and advanced Lightroom sliders. 


We will publish the students' work in our magazines and books, and select students will participate in our annual exhibition.


There are so many stories to tell, such as:

  • Capture the biodiversity of plant, bird and animal life in your neighbourhood or your favourite nature reserve

  • Capture the beauty of flowers

  • Capture the beauty of the seasons 


Fill out the application form and get in touch with us if you have any questions! This program is open to students ages 8+, and the cost to participate is $100 per student.
