Why Art Photography
There’s a place for everyone in the program - no matter what your goals!
In our program, you have the chance to learn both art photography/videography or learn commercial photography/videography.
You can work toward transferring to a four-year school or earn certificates for job preparation.
Our five certificates can prepare you for a new career or be used to accompany your major area of study.
And, our new non-credit courses are great for continuing education as they are free, repeatable, pass/no pass, skill building or job-enhancing certificates.
Our faculty and staff - who work in the field themselves - provide students with significant mentoring. You’ll start with AP1A Foundations of Photography, have great access to faculty, and work in amazing, state of the art facilities. Cabrillo assists with internships and service learning opportunities
