Clark Colby, lecturer in art and visual culture and ISU Extension and Outreach arts, communication and design 4-H youth program specialist, led a group of Iowa 4-H Camera Corps youth to the Professional Photographers of Iowa (PPI) Winter Convention. In a new partnership with PPI, youth attended the conference and took part in a hands-on portrait photography workshop session Feb. 3 in Cedar Rapids. Abby Luchsinger, senior in interdisciplinary design from Woodbury, Minnesota, helped run the event.

Iowa 4-H Camera Corps is a year-round educational photography program for 4-H youth around the state of Iowa that Colby and Luchsinger coordinate and lead. Youth photographers take part in monthly theme challenges, submit photographs, get juror feedback, take part in workshops and exhibit their work publicly in exhibitions around Iowa. The group is always in search of photography jurors/mentors, partners to run educational workshops and places to exhibit the youths’ photography. Visit the website for more information.
