Firefly Institute is an annual photo camp where women grow their photographic skills, renew their inspiration, make photo friends and have fun at a picturesque, countryside retreat in Sonoma, CA.

Camp will be held at the charming Westerbeke Ranch in Sonoma, CA,
one hour north of San Francisco.
Photography is writing with light • Photographers seek light • Fireflies ARE light
We named our women's photo camp 'Firefly Institute' to reflect a summertime playful mood (Firefly), with serious photography instruction (Institute), and because fireflies own their own light.
We believe that photographs can repair the world by adding beauty, bringing awareness, and shining light, both our own and what we express on the other side of the lens.
We believe that photographers work with powerful tools: our cameras and our hearts. Let's make some magic with light and time!
