View Career Guide
Founded in 1965, the photography program at Spokane Falls Community College is an
intensive two-year study of visual communications. Students explore career opportunities
in commercial illustration, corporate communications, photojournalism and portraiture,
and have opportunities to interact with industry through field trips, guest speakers
and cooperative work experiences.
First-year students learn the fundamentals of lighting and composition while surveying
career fields. Second-year students complete projects with real world scenarios
and focus on prevailing trends in technology.
In addition to teaching technical skills and artistic design, the program stresses
positive work habits and helps students develop personal career goals.
With guidance from an advisory committee made up of employers and working professionals,
the photography program is constantly updated to reflect current industry standards.
