At Carmel Academy there is a special community within a community—a small cadre of student photographers who are participating in a creative endeavor called Carmel Framers.

Carmel Framers is a middle school elective course, which introduces students to the art of photography. Each week, Carmel Framers are given a theme and then have seven days to create a photograph based on that theme. During class, the students view photographs and learn photography techniques related to the theme before heading out into the world to capture their image.

Carmel Framers is based on the 52Frames project (52frames.com), an international photo challenge where amateur and professional photographers...
