We partnered with the National Geographic Society to host a series of Photo Camps across the country. The five-day camps provide opportunities for young people aged 16 - 21 to tell their stories through photography. Under the guidance of world class National Geographic photographers, youth are taught the tools of photography to explore the world around them and share their unique perspective on what it means to be a young person in New Zealand.
