The photography program curriculum at Miami-Dade College/Wolfson Campus provides students with the opportunity to acquire and improve their basic skills in photography with the best technical means available.

Our program's emphasis is to teach photography as an art form, together with a solid technical foundation. Our courses give students the opportunity to pursue both analog and digital techniques in function of the final image. Our faculty is made up of professional and exhibiting artists. We have structured a coherent classroom-instruction program to facilitate student transfer to upper-division schools, or to jump into the job market if they so desire. Our graduates have moved on to earn B.F.A. degrees at leading institutions in the country, such as, New York University, San Francisco Art Institute, Massachusetts College of Art, and The Art Institute of Chicago.

The darkroom has some of today's finest equipment. Blackand-white-photography students can operate Leica enlargers. We work with all formats (from 35mm to 4"X5"). Our color facilities offer 35mm to 4"x5" enlarging with a Kreonite RA4 processor. All our 35mm enlargers are Leicas. During the summer session, students can learn to work with Polaroid transfers and lifts using a daylab. Our black-and-white labs include 12 enlargers that can print small and medium-formats. In addition, our photography program has some medium format cameras (for students to check out off-campus).

The photography program has brought major artists and art historians to lecture at the Wolfson Campus, along with major photographic exhibitions. They include, among others, Melissa Harris (editor from the Aperture foundation), Allison Nordstrom (from the George Eastman House), Merry Foresta (curator of photography from the National Museum of American Art) and Guggenheim fellowship photographer Thomas Roma (professor at Colombia University). By arrangement with Aperture of New York, Wolfson Campus' Center Gallery has hosted Shooting Blind (2004) and Aperture's Fifty Years Of Photography(2005).
