Why choose a Campbell Cameras school?

Try Before You Buy
It is hard to pull the trigger and buy a camera without getting your hands on the camera to know if it is right for you. You’re in luck! All of the classes allow you the ability to get your hands on all the video cameras and test out the various features before you purchase. If you already bought your video equipment feel free to bring it and you can learn and experiment with all the new techniques you’ve learned.

Everything about Campbells is exceptional!! The information that was learned far and away exceeded my expectations. Every aspect of videography was covered. The staff and guest presenters were easy to follow in their instruction. They answered all questions and were very approachable. I really liked the in-the-field practice. We were able to get cameras in our hands and practice things that were presented to us. You will also meet wonderful people from all over the country. It was money well spent and I would do it again in a heart beat!

Dream Job

Just wanted to say thanks to Mr. John and everyone at Campbell for awesome learning experience.

If your interested in the outdoor filming industry Cambell’s videography school is a priceless tool for getting you started!!! Thanks again!!

Knowledgeable Staff

Campbell Cameras Staff members are trained in the art of filming hunts by both Canon and Sony. The staff at the video schools will spend countless of time after hours during the school to answer any questions that you have. The 3-Day school also features an award-winning producer as a guest speaker.

I LOVED IT. Tom is the man! So is Kyle. They were so sincere and eager to teach us and to help us. They were also excellent teachers. Lots of individual one-on-one attention as the class was only comprised of 8 people. Adobe Premier Pro CS6 is a hell of a powerful tool and they did a great job of teaching us how to best use it. I would recommend this school to anyone. The only thing I wish it had was more days in length! I didn’t want to come home!
–Josh DeBerry

just finished the August class. The course information, teaching staff and guest lectures were top notch. I think you would be hard pressed to find a facility that offers such a comprehensive course in outdoor videography in a 3 day time period. It was truly an eye opening experience. I highly recommend the school for any one that is seriously considering a career in the outdoor television industry. The only complaint I have is that the food could have been a little healthier. If your on a diet or watching your weight you’ll be in trouble. The entire staff was terrific. Great Job!

The Advanced Production School is a more in depth version of our Outdoor video school, and is designed with the more advanced videographer in mind. Although it is suitable for the beginner, it caters more toward someone who has spent a few seasons filming their hunts, but is looking to take their video skills up a notch, earn a spot with an outdoor television show, or make a career change.
