The photo curriculum will help the student understand the visual language in photography from its beginnings to contemporary practices. Students will establish a personal way of seeing that will promote an individual style of photography.
Students are required to take both digital and traditional wet darkroom for a complete understanding of the medium. The Historic and Experimental darkroom class also includes 19th century historic techniques which introduces the student to alternative processes in photography. This class is also taught as a travel abroad class that visits England to experience the places and techniques of early photography.
Our digital facilities include a photography lab with 20 Mac stations networked to Epson and Canon scanners and printers up to 24” wide format.
The darkroom facilities include a “gang” room with 16 enlarger stations. There are also 3 upper-level private darkrooms with 4x5 enlargers, one room is used for mural printing.
Also available is a 10x20 lighting studio with background, strobe and “hot” lights.
