Photography is a great hobby or pastime, but it can also be an exciting career avenue. Our program teaches students how to take beautiful and moving photos, but also how to market themselves as enthusiasts or professionals in the photography industry.
We offer 2 types of lessons/workshops, each with a slightly different focus:
- Creative and Applied Digital Photography. These lessons examine how digital technology has changed the photography industry. Students will learn lighting techniques, colour and black and white photography production, and *Photoshop (pending schools resources), as well as studio techniques and how to produce high-end and location photography. Business skills will also be emphasized.
- Photojournalism. Photojournalism is a unique program that combines photography with journalism and writing. Students learn to tell stories not only with their writing but with their pictures as well. Students will learn reporting and news judgment skills on top of their lessons in photography and camera operation.
- Schools must have access to photography equipment (DSLR cameras, lens, computers, tripod) to support a maximum of 30 students.
