Kim Soles is a lifelong photographer who has been teaching the craft to young people for many years. She inspires students to understand the nuances of lighting, contrast, texture, and composition. Her love for nature photography inspired dozens of students when she taught at The Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania. She has offered photography summer camps and after school workshops for fifteen years. Working with kids who are interested in practicing their love for photography, she enjoys helping them to develop their own style.


With the changing climate of photography, along with the onslaught of digital and phone cameras, Soles does not teach the camera. Instead, she helps the student to see the world from different perspectives by becoming aware of the light, their subject, and instilling the practice of developing patience. Workshops run for 5 sessions, are 90 minutes long and are designed for kids ages 8 - 12 years-old. The following are covered during the workshop. 


Portraiture, Still Life, Food Photography, Architecture, and Nature


Participants must have their own camera, know how to use it, and make sure camera batteries are charged before arriving at class. Film cameras are also welcome. iPhone cameras are a great way for a child to discover photography as they outweigh some of the smaller point-and-shoot cameras. Participants are encouraged to print and frame a favorite image.


Covid safety is practiced. All participants are required to wear masks unless the entire class is fully vaccinated. Class takes place in West Mt. Airy. Exact location is sent out after registration. All classes are held outdoors. Class size is lovingly limited for safety reasons and space consideration.

Summer Photography Art Camp - One week Summer Photography and Art Camp takes place at the Waldorf School of Philadelphia. Located in the heart of Germantown, students immerse in photographing the historical architecture and interiors, portrait work, still life, nature and experimental/abstract photography.
