In addition to exploring photography as a means of personal expression, this program prepares individuals for work in a variety of photographic settings including working as a photographer’s assistant, working in a photo lab, starting your own business, and transfer to a four-year art school. Students can tailor the program to their own interests by choosing specialized electives.
The photographic imaging area provides students with access to medium format, large format, and digital cameras, lighting equipment, and image production facilities that represent the highest industry standards. The hands-on learning environment found in all classes provides one-on-one contact with instructors in addition to a dynamic, interactive learning experience created among students. Assignments are completed either individually or collaboratively in small groups, which encourages support and a noncompetitive atmosphere.
