Photography Camp

INFO: Day Program. 4 days, 3 nights. Monday – Thursday. Grades 9 – 12. Male and Female. Extra Cost: $150. Leave from NBCS at 9:30am Monday 20 May. Students dismissed from Wynyard Station at 4pm or Gordon Station at 4:30pm Thursday 23 May 2019.


NOTE: There has been a change in the posted accommodation. In order to cater for a larger number of students on Photography camp, we have moved the camp to Land’s Edge Chowder Bay site. This is a beautiful venue with breathtaking views of Middle Harbour and east out through the heads. It also has excellent views of other parts of Sydney Harbour. The venue itself is surrounded by beautiful sandstone buildings, battlements, and interesting sites and nature. The venue also allows the group to work in a single large room with projection facilities to enable easy sharing of information and photos taken during the camp.

These changes are acknowledged in the Photography Camp Note below.

The Photography program will again be held in Sydney in 2019. Students spend time in the City of Sydney transiting across town from beaches to the inner west, harbours to gardens.

“The Tourist” is the theme for this year’s program. Students will have the opportunity to get behind the lens and share their perspective on contemporary Australian lifestyles through the eyes of the tourist. They will be photographing architecture, urban landscapes, social hotspots, beaches, and some of the more well-known icons around the harbour.

This year the group will be spending time in the Adobe Offices in Sydney, where they will experience some training sessions in using Photoshop and LightRoom to manipulate and manage the photos they have taken so far on the camp. If time permits, the students will also get a tour of the Adobe Offices.

This camp is for those students who wish to spend time in the city developing their photographic skills and working with a range of others with varying abilities. Learning from the staff and from each other, the time spent taking photos and sharing tips and techniques will help to improve the quality of photos.

Departure time:

8:45am for a 9.30am departure on Monday 20 May, from NBCS (Normal school transport may be used).

Pick up:

Students dismissed from Wynyard Station at 4:00pm or from Gordon Station at 4:30pm, Thursday 4 May(Students can be dismissed from Wynyard Station if they are to be catching the L90 bus or other trains back to their homes – with specific permission required).

Please note that this program is a customised program for NBCS, and while the school contributes the majority of funds towards it, due to the expensive nature of this particular program and the city accommodation, a $150 surcharge is necessary.
