You will fine-tune your skills in a professional on-site studio environment as well as in indoor and outdoor locations around PEI.

The program features two large, well-equipped studios, an equipment room housing a variety of camera systems, lenses, lighting, video accessories and backgrounds, a multi-station digital lab with Macintosh computers, scanners, printers and Adobe software such as Photoshop, Lightroom and Premiere Pro, and a dedicated space for custom framing and other finishing work.
