«Art Camp» -

the creative camp for photographers at

the Baltic sea!

Art Camp – these are master classes from masters of photo art from Russia and Baltic, open-airs, work with models and make-up artists, participants’ portfolio discussion and photo competitions!
Art Camp – that is creative atmosphere, informal dialogue with masters of photo art, carnival and parties!
Art Camp – these are three hundred persons from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Russia and Belarus which are united by one: they, as well as you, look at the world through a camera objective!

The song about ArtCamp!

Valts Kleins

No matter what we are doing in our life, it leads to the learning of the world and self-comprehension in this world. The photography is not an exception. Each has the personal experience, but, as a rule, it is difficult to evaluate the value of achievements and truth of the selected way. Some people, on basis of self-experience, speak, some — do not. Both take photographs. Art Camp 2010 is a good possibility to learn others` opinion, to get free of your own creative power` constraints and to acquire reliance that all of us follow the same purpose irrespective of skin color, language or age. Wise men say that God has no religion. Also the Art Camp 2010 has not; we love each and every one who has chosen this way. Valts Kleins
