The college's photography facilities allow both beginning and advanced students to work in a well-equipped environment that fosters the exploration of individual photographic vision. These facilities can be used for traditional black and white, color, digital, and alternative photographic methods.
New state of the art photo studios include the college's black and white and color darkrooms, film processing area, photo student lounge, and equipment check out room.
Our newest facility is an alternative process darkroom located adjacent to the film processing area. This unique lab is made specifically for our Alternative Processes class. Students get to work on many different experimental photographic techniques such as Cyanotype, Van Dyke, Gum Bichromate and Platinum/Palladium prints.
This is where students can hand-process 35mm, medium format, and large format film on their own. It's also a great communal space where students can interact while they are waiting for film to dry and to interact with other students using the color darkroom.
This is a very special facility where students can make their own color prints (known as C-prints) from color film. We have a large color processor which develops, fixes, and dries prints after students make their exposures.
Students have access to 2 scanning stations as well as 2 high-quality Epson printers. In addition, there are several iMac stations where they can edit their images in Photoshop, or other programs of their choice.
This is a great all-purpose photo lab for beginners as well as more advanced students. Students make their own silver gelatin prints in our 17 station facility.
This is our one-stop equipment check-out center. Students have access to 35mm, medium format and large format cameras, lighting kits, tripods and light stands, digital scanning kits, and lots of other photo gear to shoot in the studio or out in the world.
Both of these seminar room are multi-purpose lecture, discussion and critique spaces. Each is equipped with a computer and projector for showing videos and images.
