Photography is the art of capturing light. Onboard the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus students have unique opportunities to create original images using the latest Canon cameras. Whether documenting the events of the day at the Lennon Bus or using professional lighting equipment to capture print-quality portraits, John Lennon Educational Photographic Workshop participants are challenged to express themselves through the camera's lens. Hands-on workshops using Canon cameras are led by noted photographers and students may even find themselves being asked to photograph music icons such as Bob Weir. Participants learn the techniques of composition and exposure and are introduced to a professional digital workflow using applications like Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and the newest Apple Mac Pro or MacBook Pro. The experience our students have is as memorable as the images they create. Check out some samples in our photo gallery.
