I work for a college and I am writing a report on what it takes to create a good program in professional photography. I would very much like your feedback. If you were to design an online program for Photographic design what kinds of things would you include? I assume things like The Art of Photography, Lighting, Digitial Analysis and Design, and The History of Photography. But also topics in small business management, economics, marketing, ….?
What would a course in “The Art of Photography” teach?
Do you recommend a practicum? Where? How would the instructor track the progress of her students?
How should the instuctor organize the assignments and how should they be graded? Are there any programs out there that you feel are the most effective in preparing a student for a career in photography?
Thanks for your feedback!
