Who are Hiram’s Photography Students?
Students in Hiram’s Photography minor are well-rounded artists. They share a calling to visually explore their interests, and express their ideas and unique take on the world through capturing moments. Students in Photography might also pursue Art & Design, Communication, Marketing, Film Studies, Performing Arts, or one of the other academic programs that Hiram has to offer. A Photography minor may be right for you if you enjoy:
- being creative and original
- critical thinking
- variety in your work
- nontraditional work hours
- examining history and different cultures
- sharing your work with an audience
- engaging your senses
Photography students learn the fundamentals of both fine art photography and commercial photography using all methods of production, including: traditional darkrooms, silver-based printing, digital color, large format and pinhole.
The study of visual communications is an important one. Photography helps us visualize complex ideas to better understand what is important to us and communicate in a different format than a written one. Through photography we share express what we find beautiful, interesting, ugly or inspiring with others.
Open to All Students of All Interests
On Hiram’s campus, performing and creating aren’t just reserved for students with a major in the arts. Non-majors also have opportunities to sing in the choir; showcase paintings, drawings, sculptures, and photographs; play instruments in ensembles; and act or design for performing arts productions. Many of the College’s arts programs are designed to allow students of any discipline to double major, and the small class sizes mean that everyone gets an opportunity for one-on-one instruction with our experienced faculty.
