Aspiring photographers of all levels are invited to join multidisciplinary artist Nidia Morales at a fun and exciting session of Photography Camp.

At the end of the week-long camp, campers will have created a portfolio of work. A selection of their work will be exhibited in a student-curated showcase opening on White Linen Night in Ogden Museum’s Passage Way Gallery.

Campers are encouraged to bring their own digital camera or use the camera on their phone.
