How long have you been doing these workshops and how frequently do you shoot at a photo studio?
We have been doing [them] since 2015. This was [the] first ‘studio day’ for this group of students. They didn’t have any studio experience before.
How did your class at Apex Photo Studios go?
The class went wonderfully well. We were greeted by friendly Apex staff and were able to enjoy the beautiful space for the student shoot.
What are some things that stood out about your experience here?
First of all, we are truly grateful that Apex was able to donate some studio time for a good cause. The whole experience exceeded our expectations. This class enabled us to advance our student career skills and provided [us] with industry insights.
Please include anything else you’d like us to potentially mention regarding why it is important to teach kids about photography and how you see your classes growing in the future?
We believe that it is very important to give the students an opportunity to understand and access the professional creative world and provide them with tools for success. Therefore, a ‘studio day’ in a real photography studio is an essential part of the program. We hope we can repeat it at Apex next semester again!
