The Photo Center Shop
Our ten-week classes are taught by artists and professionals with a passion for teaching and the photographic arts.
Limited to 12 students, each course provides technical training, supports artistic expression and growth, and prepares students with essential skills for the sustained study and practice of photography. Most classes are held in the evening, which gives flexibility to professionals and parents. While many students choose to take individual courses or sequences, anyone can apply for our nationally accredited Certificate Program and work to complete a rigorous program of classes that has launched numerous careers in the photographic arts. Students interested in pursuing a bachelor of fine art degree may take advantage of our partnership with Seattle University.
For all 10-week classes, students should expect to spend between three and six hours per week on assignments. In place of standard lab fees, students are eligible for steeply discounted facilities rental rates for completing assignments in the darkroom, digital lab, or studio. Before registering, please read the course descriptions in their entirety to ensure that you satisfy any prerequisites. Students who have completed equivalent coursework elsewhere or learned equivalent skills through experience may ask to have prerequisites waived. Contact the Registrar for details.
