NYC SALT is a 501c3 nonprofit digital photography and college access program serving high school students in NYC. Taught and lead by professionals in the NYC creative industry we seek to engage, inspire and empower our students to create award winning photography portfolios, pursue higher education and to obtain success jobs after college, seeing work as vocation. We value community and having a life long relationship with each student.
The NYC Salt Photography Workshops, which are an offshoot of the NYC Salt program, help New York City High Schools and community organizations provide their students with access to photography. The program is designed as an entry-level program, and is open to students enrolled at participating high schools and community organizations. The Workshops introduce students to photography and teach basic photography skills, engaging them through shooting exercises and field trips. The workshops are guided by working photographers who tailor the classes and curriculum to the students.
NYC Salt’s four-year studio program exposes student to the highest levels of the photography industry. It enables them to think creatively about their futures while becoming college ready and gaining the life-skills necessary to succeed in college and achieve rewarding professions. Our intensive studio program has three program components:
Photography is an outlet for me, a
form of art that allows me to convey
just about anything. —Laura
Photo camp classes will cover the basics of digital photography, teaching students how to see pictures in the world around them through an understanding of composition, light, color and moment. Students will spend at least half of each day taking pictures with cameras provided by the program, practicing what they learn. The camp will be taught by a professional photographer and NYC SALT studio Residency Program students, and will culminate in a public exhibition of students’ work at a NYC Parks & Recreation Center.
