Photography: Passion and Profession

With the evolution of digital photography, the camera-phone craze, and widely accessed social media platforms, the art of photography has entered a new, challenging, and exciting era. Increased competition calls for increased creativity and essential knowledge of professional workflow. This course offers students the opportunity to pursue their passion for photography while also balancing professional and commercial challenges. Students will be able to create digital portfolios that reflect creative photo essays as well as industry-standard shots: portraiture, stock photography, and commercial advertisements. Lessons on camera tools, composition, and Photoshop basics paired with business essentials such as copyright law and creating a watermark will help develop the participant’s personal and professional career in the field. Register Here Friday, April 20th until May 25th. 6 week course
