Photography Certificate

Our program is designed to teach you the skills and knowledge to become a professional photographer or an enthused hobbyist - we will cover the techniques necessary to take exceptional photos, including the identification of elements that shape excellent composition.

The process does not end when the camera clicks; students will also learn essential photographer workflows as well as the fundamentals of industry-standard photo-editing tools, including Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Instructor and peer feedback will create hands-on, cooperative experiences as each student works to polish and perfect a portfolio of photographs representing the skills, methodologies and expertise gained via the program.

We have updated our program by adding a variety of new classes, scheduling more field trips for on-location shoots and expanding the curriculum for each course.
