Photography expertise and experience is essential as this type of program requires that an excellent eye and understanding of light and photography is required. Students must have the ability to use and learn to work professionally with cameras and lenses. Many graduate from our program with a professional background in photography. This is due to the excellent teacher-student ratio, high quality faculty, and dedicated staff.
The program requires students to complete an internship at one of our photo locations. Students are given the opportunity to work directly with our faculty at each location. An internship is a minimum of one month with faculty.
Must all students have photographic experience?
