GSA’s Film + Photography program focuses on visual communication
through photography and videography. Students in the program learn a
wide variety of technical material and approaches, with a documentary
focus for photography balanced by writing, directing, and producing
their own films. In addition to instruction and studio time split
between still photography and video production, students participate in
workshops and demonstrations conducted by guest artists and take field
trips to put their knowledge to work. Students discuss and critique
their works-in-progress and that of their classmates as part of the
studio experience. Faculty members also discuss professional careers in
the field and coach students in the preparation of portfolios for
college applications. Student work is displayed in a public exhibition
on the final day of the program.
