Program Information

Today's successful photographers know more than just their cameras: they're also ready to design, edit, market, connect, write, and sell. Our students prepare for this fast-paced and ever expanding career using modern digital photographic equipment in a state-of-the-art photography studio. The program is laptop-based and fully hybrid (a combination of both online and in-class learning), offering students the benefits of flexible learning.

Photography students at Lambton College are encouraged to follow their passion as they explore diverse photographic interests, all while developing the technical skills necessary for creative control. The curriculum covers a broad range of topics, including design and composition, digital darkroom, web and social media fundamentals and portfolio development. Students have the opportunity to collaborate with classmates as they photograph events both on and off campus, and a photography field study in New York City during second year challenges students to expand their horizons. See some of our students' work from previous classes by visiting Lens on Lambton.

Students learn from current and award and award winning industry leaders who share the secrets they've learned through their decades of photography experience.

At the core of the Photography program is our state-of-the-art photography and video studio, equipped with strobe, video and continuous light kits. Students work in this space, both individually and in small groups, using professional-quality equipment from our loan department. 

Artistic career aspirations become a reality with Lambton College's Photography program.

This program has specific computer and equipment requirements, see Costs for details.
