Silverwood's accessible photography programs

Camera_3.jpgDigital photography is one of the most popular programs at Silverwood, and earlier this year we expanded our offerings to include folks with limited mobility. With support from the O.C. Williams Fund, we now have four sets of camera gear that can be used to allow individuals of all abilities to take part in photography activities.

Special tripods allow cameras to be clamped to wheelchairs or walkers, cameras with larger buttons and viewing screens, and large button remote controls turn their devices into rolling camera tripods. Others with motor skill impairments can still hold a remote control, direct an assistant to position a camera, and then take their own photos. With these adaptive devices, folks from assisted living and group homes can try their hand at photography in the park or when Silverwood brings our classes to their locations!
