Brooks Institute of Photography
THE INTENSIVE BROOKS' CURRICULUM TRAINS YOU IN THE TRIAD: ART, SCIENCE, BUSINESS
Why do I need academics? I just want to study photography.
Pushing the button that takes the picture is just a mechanical process that anyone can do. A professional photographer brings a lot more than
mechanical equipment to the job. The best photographers make photographs with their brains, not just with their cameras.
Making a career decision is a big step. What if rm not sure this is what I want to do?
Be sure you know what it is a photographer actually does. Visit photographers and ask
them, read biographies of photographers. You'll discover that photography is a universal
language used in every line of work.
What photographic experience do I need?
Obviously any photographic experience is helpful, but because you are taken step by step from the basics to more sophisticated levels of photography, it is not necessary. If you're the kind of person who can visualize great photos, but doesn't know how to get them on film, then Brooks Institute is the place for you.
What about your schedule?
Brooks operates on trimester calendar. Each course is seven weeks long, or a half-trimester, with a break in between. There are vacations of four weeks during summer, and two or three weeks in the winter. And there are six entrance dates a year.
What are the advantages of six entrance dates annually?
Instead of one large class in September, you can join smaller classes throughout the year, especially if you start in February, April, or July. Also, our rolling admissions system facilitates six graduations a year, so the industry is able to rely on Brooks Institute to produce highly qualified, employable photographers throughout the year.
