Marina teens (and beyond): this photography workshop is for you!

Monterey County Free Libraries will be holding a five-day photography mini-camp for teens during the spring break of the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District. The workshop will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the week of March 30 to April 3rd at the Marina Branch Library.

Local professional photographer Steve Zmak will be leading the mini-camp. Steve is a native Californian who has been capturing the natural beauty of Monterey County for many years. His book“A Year in the Vineyard” captures the beauty of one of the largest industries in the county.

This camp is free and space is limited. Teens interested in participating should apply at the Marina branch. Participants will learn essential and advanced photography skills using personal cameras, cell phones, and DSLR cameras. Photo editing skills using Adobe software will also be taught. The camp will include walking field trips to take photographs at local parks and Marina State Beach.

Following the workshop the Marina branch will host an artist reception and art show highlighting the works created by participants on April 11th at 4pm. Light refreshments will be served.
