Continuing Education Course

SEM: 41


Portfolio Preparation: Photography


A strong portfolio is essential for students planning to pursue a career in photography. During this course, students create 10-20 photographs as they learn how to develop a professional fine art photographic portfolio. Working one-on-one with the instructor, students develop the skills needed to create and edit a portfolio and learn to write and speak clearly about his or her work. An important part of the college application process, students work on their portfolios and receive counseling on artwork presentation. Course also covers preparation for group and solo shows and how to apply for artist opportunities.

Prerequisite: Photography experience preferred, but not required

First class materials: Camera, pen and paper or laptop for taking notes, and 3-5 pieces of previous photography artwork. For beginning students, bring 3-5 examples of photography you admire.

IMPORTANT: • All students attending courses on the Goldsmith Campus must check in with Continuing Education staff in the lobby of the Ahmanson Building
