Advanced Program

September 25 – December 6

Attendance: 10 students

The Advanced Program pushes our students to the next level of their creative expression. They will learn to build a portfolio and engage in hands-on assignments that will prepare them for jobs in the professional world. During this workshop, the focus will primarily be on career advancement: students will learn to exhibit their work through developing portfolios; to market themselves and take advantage of social media promotion; to execute a project through pre-visualization, research and thorough preparation.

Each student will receive individual mentorship, the opportunity to direct photoshoots and to improve their communication skills and e-mail correspondence. Furthermore, our students are expected to develop their file management skills and digital workflow. During creative assignments, they will improve their ability to connect with the subject, and their technical proficiency in lighting, exposure and composition.
