The Brentwood Photography Program has a rich history that explores both traditional and digital workflows. Students of all skill levels are able to enjoy the creative challenge of photography. Projects throughout the program are designed to develop a strong skill set of composition and technique that enable the student to produce rewarding, finished products supported by our professional facilities.

Passionate yet patient instructors introduce beginners to Traditional Film Photography techniques, including developing their own photo film in one of our two on-campus darkrooms. Advanced students will take a deeper exploration of the camera's creative tools and capabilities, and study more challenging styles and techniques—all building up to showcasing their work at Brentwood’s public art shows. Students may study digital photography if they are interested in learning the nuances of successfully capturing, processing, and printing digital images.
