Mr. Stephens from Las Vegas NV is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Kick Start a Photography Program!

My students need lighting equipment to learn about the qualities of light. They also need light meters to learn how to properly expose a photograph. They also need reflectors to learn to control natural light.

My Students

My school focuses on leadership and respect. Our students are respectful and courteous. They solve problems and conflicts themselves and thrive to be excellent. They are enthusiastic in the classroom and make the school a great place to be.

My students are part of the new photography program at a wonderful Charter School.

They come from a variety of backgrounds and love to learn. They vary in from middle to high school age. They have a wide variety of photographic experience.

My Project

I have been hired to be a full time photography teacher at a great charter school. I am building the program from the ground up. Due to popular demand I will have 5 sections of photography a day. As the school is young and expanding, the budget for the program is limited.

Help me start a brand new and exciting photography program at an emerging school by providing equipment for the classroom.

With studio lights the students can learn to see and recognize the qualities of light. With flashes they will learn to add and manipulate artificial light. With reflectors they will learn to manipulate natural light. Light meters will help them learn to properly expose pictures. All equipment will be used on campus and never for profit.
