PHOTOGRAPHY

2024 Photography

Photography students are instructed in various photographic techniques and are encouraged to utilize the aesthetics of their surroundings. Students explore conventional and digital photography, along with darkroom and digital editing techniques. Student photography is displayed in public exhibitions. Up to 20 students are accepted.

Requirements for Applicants

To apply to the photography program, applicants must submit a portfolio of 6-8 images. Evaluators will be looking for applicants who have a good understanding of photographic technique (e.g. composition, use of light, contrast) and whose images tell their artistic point of view.

Images may be conventional and/or digital photographs, but all photos will be submitted digitally in JPEG format. Images may be taken on any type of camera, including smartphones or tablets.

Application Deadline: Monday, February 12, 2024 at 11:59 p.m.
