At the heart of photography is a personal vision and distinct point of view. It is a way of seeing, a perspective. SCAD teaches talented students to look within and develop their own insights by honing the skills necessary to bring their nascent ideas into focus.
Foundations for successThe SCAD photography program offers both a solid set of foundational skills and the opportunity for a student to tailor the course of study to his or her strengths, interests and professional goals. Industry-standard equipment helps advance a sophisticated level of career preparation. Students are nurtured by SCAD professors, who offer unique and valuable gifts, viewpoints, skills, talents and collegiality to enable students to reach their highest creative potential.
Photography is offered in Atlanta, Hong Kong, Savannah and online via eLearning.
Breadth of opportunity
Students may choose to specialize in a wide variety of photography-related genres. Among the possibilities are fine art, commercial, photojournalism or documentary, as well as innovative hybrid approaches that may include video, new media, sculpture/installation and/or medical/scientific imaging.
SCAD photography professors have earned accolades as artists and teachers, with work featured in PRINT magazine's digital photography annual and represented in the collection of the National Library of Congress, to name a few. They have received accolades such as the National Press Photographers Award, Ford Foundation grants and many others.
