To be a photographer today is to place yourself in the center of a world where image making possibilities are endless and where you can decide when to embrace tradition and when to reject it. In Photography, you build a strong foundation in analog and digital techniques and lighting strategies, explore expansive ways of thinking about and making images, and develop a vocabulary to discuss and critique your work and the work of others.

While developing a high degree of professional proficiency, you learn to communicate powerfully and to critically examine the challenges of photographic expression in the contemporary art landscape. All of this provides you with the foundation you need to pursue your career goals, whether in galleries, commercial photography, or graduate studies.

I wouldn’t be the person or artist I am today without my education at PNCA. My professors and fellow classmates have pushed me in every way possible to become a better artist, experiment, and try new things. Through classes, workshops and support from faculty, I have gained knowledge of how to be a successful artist, achieve my goals and prepare for an artist career.
