Students are encouraged to experiment with a variety of photographic equipment and processes, from pinhole cameras to the latest in digital imaging, from non-silver processes to jpegs, not only to become technically proficient, but also to explore and find their own creative space. Students participate fully in their learning experience, pushing the boundaries and testing the limits of what photography means today and what it will mean in the future.
