Photography at WNMU offers an integrative approach to photography where
students can develop skills and insights into photo-based media, and how
to apply these skills in a myriad of media contexts and applications.
The skills developed begin with learning to create visually compelling
photographic images within the medium's digital domain. These formal skills become the foundation for the various ways photography is used in
different media contexts, such as the fine arts, graphic arts, web-based
work, and commercial applications.
Students are encouraged to integrate their photo-based work with other
media forms as we now commonly see in our media savvy world, where
photography is active an element in time based art utilizing video,
sound, text, graphics, etc. These skills become the framework for the
student's development as a visual artist at large.
WNMU photography offers a foundation for the student who wishes to make
photography an integral part of their creative process and livelihood.
