Today's successful photographers know more than just their cameras: they're also ready to design, edit, market, connect, write, and sell. The Photography program from Lambton College is laptop-based and fully hybrid (a combination of both online and in-class learning), offering students the benefits of flexible learning.


Photography students at Lambton College are encouraged to follow their passion as they explore diverse photographic interests, all while developing the technical skills necessary for creative control. 

The curriculum covers a broad range of topics, including design and composition, digital darkroom, lighting and camera skills, and portfolio development. Students have the opportunity to collaborate with classmates as they photograph events both on and off campus, and a photography field study in New York City during second year challenges students to expand their horizons. See some of our students' work from previous classes by visiting Lens on Lambton.

Students learn from current and award and award winning industry leaders who share the secrets they've learned through their decades of photography experience.

At the core of the Photography program from Lambton College is our state-of-the-art photography and video studio, equipped with strobe, video and continuous light kits. Students work in this space, both individually and in small groups, using professional-quality equipment from our loan department.
