Photography Track

PHOTOGRAPHY TRACK

If you have a passion for photography and a desire to communicate Gods heart through this powerful means,come and join our brand new photography track and learn how to practically photograph with excellence.The heart of this track is to be a voice to the voiceless by capturing their stories for the world to see and break their chains of injustice.

This track will cover everything from the basics of photography– understanding your camera fluently, off camera lighting and flash, photojournalism, travel photography, as well as editing and post production. All students will have practical photography teaching as well as hands on opportunities to apply what they’ve learned during the school with their camera in hand.

During the year, you can expand your portfolio and gain hands-on, practical experience as you hone your craft.
During the year we will also have opportunity for improvisation and learn to be prophetic alongside other artists as part of the Creative DTS (musicians, artists,film makers and dancers). As you form artistic teams during the first phase of the DTS, you strategically plan how you will use your talents in photography to minister in another culture during the Outreach phase.
