Digital Photography Program | K24L

 
 
Lincoln’s Professional Photography Program is one of the most celebrated photography programs in the nation. For over 35 years, our students have won national and regional awards, college and professional school admissions, scholarships, and job placement. The introductory-level courses cover the fundamentals of digital photography and related software. Students strengthen their understanding of topics through open-ended photography and writing assignments. Students in the advanced courses delve deeper into a variety of technical and creative skills.
 
Audition Information:
Students will prepare and submit the following to Mr. Carlos Molina, Director of the Photography Program, via mail (to the school’s address) or email cmolina2@schools.nyc.gov by early December: An informal portfolio of the student’s work.
