Welcome to a multi-part series sponsored by Sony ImageMakers.

Through Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s (BGCA) national partnership with Sony Electronics, Inc., BGCA invited talented young photographers in our Clubs to advance their photography skills through a special opportunity. During the Keystone Conference, registered attendees who demonstrated an interest in photography and a commitment to growing their talent in this art form were invited to apply for the ImageMakers Teen Photo Team. Below are some of the creative works from the Sony ImageMakers Teen Photo Team.

During this photo assignment, the Sony ImageMakers Teen Photo Team focused on the following theme~

Memorial Day:  Thinking like a Photojournalist


Angelina- Memorial Memory

The picture shows the American Flag that’s blurry. The blur makes it seem as if we’re going back in time to the memory of the loved ones who died in the war.


Danielle- Memorial Day Fun

I chose this photo because it shows the fun that goes along with Memorial Day and the start of summer, as well as showing that the older Club members know to have just as much fun as the younger Club members.


Julia & Katrina-We had a kid’s color run to kick off Memorial week.

The kids enjoyed running 2 miles while colored powered was being thrown at them. Afterwards, they enjoyed snacks and refreshments.


Regan- Shade

Although this picture isn’t shady, I could see it being a picture found about Memorial Day because lots of people use it to go to the pool or barbeque.
