Who goes to Photography Schools?
Most of the people who enroll into photography schools have been shooting pictures as a hobby before they arrive. But, this is not true for all people. It is possible to go to a photography school and take a very basic beginning class on how to use a film camera. For people who do not have any experience at all with a film camera, it is wise to speak to your campus advisor before enrolling into classes randomly. Some classes that are marked ‘beginner’ in the title assume that you already know how to load the camera.
The majority of photography schools require that students have a high school diploma or GED certification completed prior to registration. Degrees are offered in photography or fine arts for photography at the AA, BA, and Master Degree levels.
People choose their photography schools by searching through industry trade publications and college course catalogs until they find the school that fits all of their needs. For your convenience, we keep a comprehensive list of photography schools for you to explore.
