Photography

Weber State University offers students the most comprehensive photography program and facilities in the Intermountain West. Our expansive approach to the discipline engages students in contemporary practices, as well as in the historical traditions which those practices evolved from.

Our curriculum provides technical expertise in both analog and digital imaging and introduces the critical skills and theoretical insights necessary for students to articulate their ideas into art forms. Students graduate with the skills necessary to pursue active careers as exhibiting artists and to work in photography-related professions.

Our 4,000 square foot lab contains, but is not limited to: beginning and advanced darkrooms, high-end digital workstations, a mural darkroom, an alternative-processes lab and a dedicated lighting studio. Additionally, high-end cameras and equipment are available to advanced students for off-campus use.

The teaching philosophy of our program is a basic one: to support the individual student in his/her growth toward a personal vision in photography.
