Professional Development Certificate


Develop key skills, stay current and renew your portfolio. The Photography professional development certificate will help you learn the photography essentials of shooting, editing and processing. In this program, you will learn how to see with a photographer’s eye and capture the world around you, improve your personal style and photographic compositions through an awareness of the history of photography and gain an understanding of current day advances to the medium.

Skills include operating the camera in manual mode to best control the power and impact of your photographs, using the Adobe Lightroom software as your file management system and digital darkroom to prepare photographs for print and publishing to the web, and learning in-studio external flash photography techniques. You will be equipped to apply all of your newly acquired skills as an art or documentary photographer and create your very own unique photography portfolio.
