Photo studio picture


Today’s world is visual. From magazines to online newspapers to Instagram, photographers are the conduit to communicate information in today’s society.

Offering Digital Photography I (ART 174) and Digital Photography II (ART 274), students learn technical control of the camera, conceptual development, raw image post-processing, studio lighting, image retouching, and real-life working scenarios.


The NMC Photography program has a fully outfitted commercial grade photography studio and two Apple computer labs. All computers are updated with the latest versions of Abobe Photoshop and Lightroom for students to work in post-processing and retouching.
