Overview

Students have the opportunity to study the application of professional cameras, lenses, and related processes, including small, medium, and large formats, as they apply to commercial uses such as editorial or advertising photography. They have the opportunity to learn to use a traditional wet lab, alternative processes, and digital image capture and editing in facilities expressly designed for each purpose.
