The program consists of building a strong foundation in commercial photography, fine art, photojournalism, and portraiture by exploring the theory and practice of photography while working with state-of-the-art equipment. Students develop proficiency in digital and analog photography from capture through print and digital presentation. Along their learning pathway, students receive hands-on experience in studio lighting, black and white processing, basic video production and editing, alternative processes, and presentation practices.

Our faculty and staff consist of experienced professionals who create an environment that encourages creativity, technical aptitude and critical thinking. The Photography Program is devoted not only to the refinement of visual skills, but to the cultivation of the mind. In addition to teaching technical skills and artistic design, the program stresses positive work habits and helps students develop personal style and career goals. Our objective is to successfully educate and graduate professional image makers with the technical, theoretical, artistic and business skills necessary for their success.
