This two-year Ontario College Diploma program is designed to train students to capture, create, and alter images, and demonstrate a professional level of craft and creativity in digital imaging. Digital knowledge and skills are integrated with the fundamentals of photography to emphasize the creation of images that communicate effectively and meet the needs of clients. Although this program is quite technical, students are encouraged to showcase their creative visual talents while designing and capturing images that successfully communicate their message.
Students create a state of-the-art portfolio and a website using high-end digital cameras to capture professional quality images that demonstrate their creative or technical skills and abilities. Algonquin's large photography studios are equipped with up-to-date tungsten and electronic flash lighting systems, lighting booms, soft-boxes and professional backdrops.
These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
