photography

The photography area offers a diverse curriculum of traditional darkroom techniques and concepts in black and white photography as well as digital media. Course offerings include lighting, documentary photography, fine art digital printing, and alternative processes. Students are encouraged to do an internship after they have completed intermediate photography courses. Because the university is in an urban setting there are opportunities with local photographers, galleries, and museums including the Birmingham Museum of Art and Southern Progress Corporation. Students also have done portfolio reviews with nationally known artists such as David Hilliard, Christopher Bucklow, Jeff Whetstone, and Dru Donovan.
