This program is designed to help the student produce visually compelling images. A photographer needs more than creativity – a photographer needs to have working knowledge of composition, lighting, camera and technical skills and a thorough understanding of the subject. As a student, you will have an opportunity to learn these skills and be challenged to build upon the creativity and proficiencies you already possess.


The program builds from basic exposure, composition, and camera operations to photographic design, digital processing, color management, printing, and applies industry “best practices”.  It is critical to have in-depth knowledge of the technical process of digital photography from capture to final output.


Students will be given assignments after each workshop session to reinforce their understanding of the lecture or photography topic presented. Students are expected to complete and submit their assignments before the start of the next workshop session.
