Annual High School Summer Photography Academy

We are excited to move forward with the planning and promotion of our annual face-to-face High School Summer Academy for CBU Photography here within the College of Architecture, Visual Arts, and Design.

This week-long summer academy lays the foundation of photography by faculty Professor Christopher Kern, MFA. Also allows for an intensive exploration of the tools and practice of photography - introducing DSLR and Mirrorless camera options, utilizing natural light, the introduction of the studio and location lighting, and digital printing.

Throughout the week, students will have access to equipment and studios to experiment with the help of faculty and student workers. Ending the week is an opportunity to showcase their week’s efforts in print - in a pop-up gallery show - where family and friends can see the results of the academy.

As the dates get closer - more information will be available.


Dates: Monday, July 8 – Friday, July 12

Time: Daily 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Age: Incoming 9th – 12th Grade
