Applied Photography Certificate of Achievement

In today’s world, images have become the most dominant global form of communication. Images are used to sell the products that surround us, drive valuable traffic in the online environment, influence public perception, as well inform, entertain, or inspire.  These images are created by highly skilled photographers who are able to use tools such as lighting, composition, digital editing software, and the full capabilities of their camera to create their desired effect.

The Applied Photography Certificate of Achievement provides a strong foundation for students wishing to enter the workforce as photographers as well as to further their education in the fields of photography, fine arts, or graphic design.  Students will learn the basic skills, processes, and practices needed to begin working as photographers. Students will create a portfolio of images, a website, and CV/resume for professional or academic use.
