Camp Taliesin West: Photographing Wright (ages 12–16)

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 07/01/2022
Explore architecture, science, engineering, art, and photography at Camp Taliesin West! Located at Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Arizona home, Camp Taliesin West encourages participants to explore, create, and design as they engage in fun and educational activities. Campers will learn from our unique, historic property and the principles of Wright, applying them to their own projects and adventures.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

The architecture of Taliesin West is the backdrop for a weeklong photographic journey. Renowned photographer, Andrew Pielage, will guide us in capturing our unique, World Heritage site, and the Sonoran Desert around them. We will learn and explore the tools needed to best utilize a DSLR camera including aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. We will then apply these creative approaches to composition, image framing, and the challenges of light and shadow.

Students must provide their own digital SLR camera and corresponding USB cable. It is highly encouraged that students provide their own laptop for editing photographs.
