About this Program

The portrait and wedding photographer needs a sound photographic education with special emphasis on people skills, good personal sales ability and a strong sense of `dynamic timing` coupled with studio and location lighting skills. Portrait/wedding photographers work one-on-one with clients and often on weddings with photographer assistants. Portraiture can be general in nature or may offer a broad scope of specialization within the field. Some of the specialization could include such areas as glamour, classical, casual, romantic, fantasy, fad, illustrative or humorous styles of portraiture.
