About the Program: Everywhere you look there are photographs. A photo has the power to convey complex meaning, stir emotions and spark conversation. In Photography Studies, the focus is on using the theories and techniques of the craft, along with a healthy dose of imagination, to create images that compel, provoke and inspire viewers. Today, the practice of photography has expanded to include web tools, video and sound. This program embraces both old and new technology to teach you how to turn your photography into art. Ryerson graduates find work as photographers and make a valuable contribution to Canada’s visual art practice.
