PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTIST

Certificate

Students successfully completing this program are prepared for careers as photographic retouchers, print finishers, and print colorists, print restorers, and print copiers, and can perform the duties of a photographer's assistant in simple portrait and product photography. Job opportunities are found in studios, color labs, archives, and the animation industry. The sit-down nature of much of the program makes the training ideally suited for the mobility impaired. Trainees should have good artistic sense, creative ability, fine visual acuity, accurate color perception, and excellent eye-hand coordination. Employment opportunities are considered to be above average. Minor variations desirable for student career goals may be accomplished within college policies by approval of the Program Coordinator.
