Description: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 an up-to-date 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 photography studios are equipped with current tungsten and electronic flash lighting systems, lighting booms, soft-boxes and professional backdrops. Students produce high-quality images using industry-standard software in the College`s networked, post-production computer labs. These labs are equipped with Macintosh Cinema Display monitors, film and flatbed scanners, ink-jet printers, viewing booths, mounting press and colour management systems.
