Our Approach:

Our motto is Vision, Content and Craft.

SPAO was created to deliver intensive photographic training. The full-time curriculum is portfolio driven and designed with the committed student of photography in mind. The part-time studies offered are geared to many levels of experience, but still share an intensity of concentration, and emphasis on craft and execution, with the full-time program.

SPAO's 2-3 year, full-time curriculum, produces skill-sets that exceed industry standards and merge the fine arts with commercial applications, while allowing students the freedom to develop their portfolios. The small class sizes, (ratio approximately 1 instructor : 7 students) grant students ample one-on-one attention.

This school is a unique facility that provides a lot of creative freedom and open access to its students. Open 7 days a week, the full-time students have regular access to the darkroom, computer lab and studio.

Curriculum:

Critiques and thesis-style advisory sessions encourage the pursuit of a personal aesthetic and evolve individual talent. As it educates through performance, the program maintains an organic relationship between its component courses. Digital and analog course content merges classic and contemporary techniques seamlessly.

The core curriculum addresses: Photographic Theory, Photographic History and Achievement, Studio and Lighting Techniques, Printmaking Techniques, Digital Techniques, Portfolio Concepts, and Personal Aesthetics. SPAO also presents regular intensive workshops, on topics ranging from alternative printmaking processes to fashion photography.
