Click on the image to see program description and course requirements for the program. Take PHO-101 Intro Photo and DMA-110 Digital Imaging together in your first semester. These two courses allow you to move into all of the other PHO and DMA courses. PHO-101 can be taken while you are taking foundation ENG courses and it is possible in some situations to get into DMA-110 while taking foundation ENG courses with the approval of Professor Dalton. (Certificate Majors should take PHO-103 and DMA-110 to get started.)
Fall Only Courses: PHO-202
Spring Only Courses: PHO-203, PHO-251

Steps for Success:
You will need an SLR film camera for PHO-101 & PHO-102. I recommend borrowing one if you can or purchasing a used camera from NY Camera of Princeton, KEH.com, B&H Photo in NYC, Adorama Camera in NYC, or Allen’s Camera in PA. Always make sure there is a return policy when buying used equipment. Also be sure to get a matching lens. An inexpensive 50mm lens is all you need. Good Models to look at: Any Canon model that starts with A or F (A1, F1, AE-1, etc.) – Any Nikon F model camera.
The photo program has DSLR loaners for all of the other classes, but I do recommend purchasing a DSLR for yourself if you can afford one. PHO-103 Intro Digital only requires a point and shoot bridge camera that has fully manual controls (manual exposure and focus.)
The black and white film classes require the purchase of a supply kit. The kit is available at New York Camera of Princeton and bhphotovideo.com for about $130.00 and it is available at the school bookstore for about $200.00.
Wait until your first day of classes before purchasing supplies.
All of the film & digital photo and digital media courses use free online tutorials and downloadable documents. The photo history class uses a traditional textbook. Everything is explained on the first day of class, so there is no need to purchase before then.
