Photography

Through an artistic lens.

Nicholls photography students learn to create compelling images that express their personal vision. Along their journey, students gain an understanding of photography’s history as an artistic medium, as well as its ongoing impact on contemporary culture.

Our program is set up to ensure that students gain a solid understanding and competence in a wide range of lens-based media, including digital, traditional, and techniques which meld the two together. The curriculum begins with an emphasis on digital photography, building a strong understanding of technical skills in camera work, software, and workflow. At the intermediate level, students learn to utilize a wide variety of film cameras, from 35mm SLR to medium and large formats, and gain a strong foundation in traditional and experimental darkroom techniques, as well as color photography, advanced digital technique, studio and locational lighting, etc. Classroom discussion and activities promote an understanding of critical issues in photography, past and present. Finally, advanced level courses provide for specialized study utilizing whatever processes support the student’s individual artistic vision.
