Photography is often described as equal parts science and art. Photographers help us see the world in new ways – documenting, representing, contextualizing and/or interpreting objects, people, places, situations or occurrences through distinct lenses. The core certificate engages students in exploring the principles of design to be able to construct considered, meaningful and impactful images. Subsequent learning includes focused technical learning and practice with a camera: seeing through a lens, digital technology, lighting, post-processing and archival printing. Graduates of the photography program are able to depict powerful visual narratives – building portfolios that support professional development, personal fulfillment and/or subsequent independent practice.
