While anyone can take a picture, photographers harness the science and technology of this expressive medium.

The Photography program at CCS blends traditional techniques and digital training—including video and motion graphics—to help students thrive in the constantly changing world of photography. Ample studio space creates a home for honing fine art skills; training in commercial settings—from events to fashion shoots to fine art images—fosters flexibility and creativity.

Students develop a unique photographic style through a combination of refined fine art skills and applied commercial studio training, which provides flexibility in the thought process and helps prepare them to deal with the constantly changing photographic field.
