About the Program:

Project: Identity Photo is free digital photography intensive for high school teens. This unique 12-week program provides an opportunity to learn the basics of photography, composition, historical photo processing and Adobe Photoshop. A culminating photobook and exhibition will be created and shared with the community. Participants explore the medium of photography as a conduit for personal expression and storytelling.

We equip students with a standard point and shoot camera and upon successful completion of the program, they are able to keep the camera! Photos will be exhibited on site at the Bethel Woods Event Gallery, via the internet/social media throughout the year, in print as well as at local galleries throughout Sullivan County. No prior photography knowledge is necessary.
