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~
