Photographers record visual images on film, videotape or digital media to graphically illustrate or explain an idea, record an event, or capture a mood. They often specialize in a particular type of subject matter, such as portraits, landscape and nature, or news pictures, and in types of equipment such as 35 millimeter cameras, video, or movie cameras. Some career titles include portrait photographers, commercial and industrial photographers, photojournalists, visual artists and photo editors. The photography major may also lead to other, related careers. For additional possibilities, consult the EUREKA, Sigi-Plus or Discover computerized career databases, the Occupational Outlook Handbook, or one of the many other career resources located in the Santa Monica College Transfer/Counseling Center.
In the studio we employ Macintosh computers for digital capture. In Digipix, our digital imaging facility, we utilize the most current versions of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Dreamweaver, and Adobe Illustrator.
