In-Kind Gifts of Photo Equipment

Philadelphia Photo Art Center’s free after-school program, Teen Photo, serves over 60 Philadelphia high school students, and they need cameras! Teen Photo is a rigorous year-long exploration of photography from technical mastery to individual artistic development. Each student is given a DSLR camera to take home for the entire school year. The demand for this program has far exceeded our camera supply and we are accepting any digital SLR that shoots raw files. If you have any questions about donating cameras or other equipment, please contact
