The photography curriculum is a two year Associate degree program offering training in photographic techniques and their application in professional photographic disciplines. Special emphasis is placed on developing skills in the following areas:
Fundamentals of camera systems, lighting, photographic processes, visual design and craftsmanship, digital imaging, and business practices.
Graduates qualify for entry-level jobs in the diverse photographic industry. Employment opportunities exist in the following areas: commercial, graphics, photojournalism, portrait, equipment sales, photographic laboratories, web design, and imagining technologies.
The first year of the program students use traditional (film) processes in color and black and white. They also get to explore the magic of the darkroom and creative alternative processes. Summer transitions to the second year that focuses on digital techniques and applications.
Students who are interested in continuing their education are well prepared to enter into a four-year program. Several schools offer transfer credit for the photography degree.
The world is changing and the CCC Photography Program is working hard to address and teach new technological advances, making students ready for changes being implemented in business and industry.
