The Youth Photography Project was established in 2016 to promote photography as a tool of self expression and to give voice to the youth of Wilson NC. The young photographers have the opportunity to document their surroundings using the latest Canon camera equipment . Each year our young photographers amaze us with their tenacity in capturing fresh visions of the world. The resulting photographs are exhibited, featured on our website, and archived by the Imagination Station Science and History Museum.
The workshop runs for 3 hours and covers basic photography techniques including composition and creative observation. Students receive instruction from alumni of the Columbia College Chicago Photography Department and internationally acclaimed photographers who are participating in the Eyes on Main Street Wilson Outdoor Photography Festival.
The Youth Photography Project has delivered workshops to the following groups: Eastern NC School for the Deaf, Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Wilson, Save A Youth and The SPOT.

Our group is happy to discuss partnerships with other school programs and photography festivals.
