Jennifer, camellias are easy to prune and respond well to it.
Prune back as hard aa you like...you can do it now since you will lose flowers anyway.
take every stem back ....ideally to green shoots but not essential. It will green up well, don't worry
you want it 3' lower so go for 4' . It will bush out well.
In subsequent years tip prune to increase density.
You will lose flowers for at least one year, possibly two, but it will be a more convenient size for you to deal with
