Photography is a technology dependent art form.

Lakeland students have access to the college’s
state-of-the-art labs and equipment for digital imaging, black and white and color processing and printing, densitometry, studio lighting, and medium and large format cameras. Students may take individual classes or pursue an associate of arts degree with an emphasis in photography.

The curriculum will meet the needs of those who plan careers in photography, professionals interested in updating their skills, students who wish to transfer credits to a four-year degree program, and those who wish to use photography as a creative outlet in their lives.

Lakeland’s photography department is one of the best in Ohio, committed to a learning philosophy that provides students with technical skills and a thorough knowledge of the process of visual communication. These elements provide photographers with the foundation needed to be successful regardless of their specialty. Expertise can only be gained through experience, and the cornerstone of the photography curriculum is learning by doing.

The department’s faculty are all working photographers with professional experience that they incorporate into their teaching. Through various exhibits on campus and throughout the area, students have the opportunity to display their work. Because of the department’s outstanding reputation for preparing students to excel in photography, an informal field experience program exists wherein qualified students have the opportunity to assist in some of the top studios in the area and other professional environments such as the Cleveland Museum of Art. Lakeland alumni hold important positions in commercial studios, portrait studios, labs, and photography departments throughout the area.
