Episcopal Summer Institute: Behind the Lens

Alexandria, VA

Overview

During this weeklong experience, our students explore the fundamentals of digital and documentary photography in the state-of-the-art Ainslie Arts Center on the Episcopal High School campus. We introduce photography through the majestic landscape and historic sites of the D.C. area.

During this weeklong experience, we introduce the power and impact of photography and how it helps to shape and visualize the world around us. Students build the fundamentals of digital and documentary photography in the state-of-the-art Ainslie Arts Center on the Episcopal High School campus, explore the history of photography and its impact, and develop their own personal aesthetic. Led by Episcopal High School faculty, students build their portfolio, develop and communicate their personality through their unique experiences and aesthetic, visit visually stunning historic sites, and display their talents in the culminating final exhibition of their work. With easy access to Washington, D.C., EHS is a great base camp for photographing some of the nation's most famous battlefields, monuments, landmarks, and landscapes. 

The curriculum is developed to both excite new photographers and encourage students who are looking to expand their skills through hands-on experience, as well as through masterclass learning from New York Times editorial photographer Will Mebane (EHS class of 1991). All equipment is provided, though students are welcome to bring their own.
