This short course introduces participants to the basics of fashion photography*. They will develop an understanding of how fashion photography emerged and evolved from the 1950s onwards. Photographing a figure, deconstructing a look, understanding what styling is and how to apply it. These are all elements that they will explore. They will be introduced to digital photography techniques, indoor and outdoor shooting, retouching and image processing applicable to the fashion industry, and be given the opportunity to create a fashion photo book of their work via a vocational learning approach.
An introduction to digital photography techniques will be the starting point of the course. A studio-based induction to photographic technique and equipment will take place. Participants will explore the past, present and future fashion photography trends to understand the context in which they will be working.

As a Cultural Heritage Conservation and Management specialist, you will learn a wide range of techniques to save the fragile reminders and markers of the past -- preserve
he fundamental role of the conservation professional is to preserve and restore, as appropriate, cultural property for present and future generations. We have a lot to learn from the experiences and events of people who have gone before us. However, we can't learn much from the past if we don't have records of it. Imagine how much history is lost to us when an ancient artifact is destroyed -- by perfectly well-meaning people who want to save it. This is an intensive, fast-paced learning experience that you will undertake in four consecutive semesters. You'll start your classes in September and spend your first three semesters, during the fall, winter and summer, at the college. Following your introduction to the field of conservation, you will gain experience in the care and handling of most common museum materials, including ceramics, glass, stone, metals, wooden objects, leather and proteinaceous materials, textiles, works of art on paper, books, archival materials, photographs and modern materials. Updated curriculum reflects best practices routed in ethical applications. Once you've learned the theory and practical skills, you'll treat museum artifacts from local, regional, and national sites. Complementary courses, workshops, assignments, and community-based projects will offer off-campus opportunities to practice conservation methods. A full-time, unpaid, curriculum-based internship in your final semester (September to December) provides an invaluable learning and work experience....
