There are two photography classes available for students to take at Magee. These courses are as follows:
In this beginner's course, students learn about the history of photography and the great photographers of the world.
They also learn to produce perfect negatives through proper use of the SLR camera, processing and printing. Students take part in critique sessions, gallery visits and reports.
Students develop and present a personal photo essay as part of this course, along with a Photo Portfolio for admission to post-secondary studies. Classroom critiques are very important aspects of this course as they help students further develop their critical eye in order to help them refine their personal imagery as a photographer.
A 35mm SLR camera is recommended for these courses.
