In the Photography Program, we take a fine art approach to teaching and inspiring our students. Images are a powerful visual and creative means to communicate. Photography is MAGIC! Concepts blended with good technical skills are key to making images that communicate and express ones artistic vision. The Photography Program encourages exploration and creative possibility to thrive. Traditional photography still serves a role in our strong digital imaging curriculum lending historical insights to contemporary methodologies that yield a diverse range of courses that challenge our student’s visual experience. Students gain excellent photographic technical skills along with solid knowledge of Adobe software programs while exploring their creative ideas.
