Photo-Bootcamp, a new program dedicated to photography education, is thrilled to announce the highly anticipated launch of its immersive and tuition-free in-person workshop June 1-2. In collaboration with the Tennessee Arts Commission, Freed-Hardeman University, and Jud Davis Photography, this hands-on learning experience is set to empower aspiring photographers in Chester County.
“We believe that an in-person workshop is an excellent opportunity, providing students with a unique chance to learn and practice their photography skills in a supportive and collaborative environment,” said aid Jud Davis, professional photographer and creator of Photo Bootcamp. “Thanks to a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission and the generosity of Freed-Hardeman University as a host location, the bootcamp is free to all participants.”
Led by experienced professional photographers, the workshop provides students with a unique opportunity to learn and practice photography skills in a real-world setting. The workshop covers a range of topics, including but not limited to fundamental camera operation, composition, lighting, and post-processing techniques, and includes individual feedback and guidance.
“As I have taken photos all over Chester County and west Tennessee, so many people talk to me about an opportunity to learn more about photography,” said Davis. “Well this is it! This is the workshop so many have asked about and we are very excited to provide this opportunity for Chester County.”
The workshop will take place over the course of two days and will be held on the campus of Freed-Hardeman University. Students will have the opportunity to learn from and interact with other photography enthusiasts, making it a great networking opportunity as well. Currently more than 20 people, ages 15 to 70, have reserved their spot in the workshop.
The workshop is open to photography enthusiasts of all levels, from beginners to professionals. Students are required to bring their own camera equipment, but everything else, including classroom materials and models, will be provided.
