The introductory classes in our program emphasize 35mm black-and-white film-based photography. We offer classes in digital color and large-format photography as part of the intermediate level of the curriculum. The photography facilities comprise a large darkroom, a “white” room for print washing and drying, 3 negative developing rooms equipped for 35mm and large format development, a print finishing room, a digital lab, and a critique space. All photography students have 24-hour key card access to the McLellan building and photo areas.
