Course Description

In this 10-week course, students will explore various genres within photography, with focus in conceptual, aesthetics, technical, research, refinement, and execution. Topics will include street photography, portraiture, food, still life, and architecture. Through lecture, discussion, critique/reviews, and assignments, students will develop hands-on practice with photography production that leads to portfolio-level artwork. Assignments help build student portfolio repertoire. In addition to a visit from an Otis College Admissions Counselor, this course may include one to two guest speakers from the field.


All K-12 and Pre-College students are required to complete and return a K-12 and Precollege Mandatory Forms Packet prior to admittance into the classroom. Students will not be permitted to attend without this.
