With a focus on exploring most forms of Photography, our students will learn the techniques and technical skills necessary to capture and produce professional level images, all while developing their own style and creative eye.

The Photography Media Arts program uses a project-based curriculum that gives students the opportunity to work on real world projects, both in our studio and in the field. From fashion photography to event photography, food and product, landscape, sports/action and everything in between, individuals will explore different camera techniques, shooting styles and subject matter. This builds a significant portfolio of work.

Upon graduation, each student will have the skills to start their own freelance photography business. Whether it’s in photojournalism, commercial (for advertising) photography, freelance, or a combination, there are growing opportunities for those who choose to apply themselves.
