      Enhance Your Digital Photography Skills

      The role of the photographer in our world is a powerful one. The photographer documents our human journey, informs us, captures our essence and fills our world with his or her creations. The world of photography is also constantly evolving. To be successful, one must combine a visual flair with the proficiency needed to master the advanced technological changes this field is continually experiencing.

      The Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online Division offers a Bachelor of Science in Digital Photography that is designed to provide you with a rigorous study of the elements of image production and manipulation, a wide range of professional camera and lighting equipment and the ability to capture a moment through your lens that evokes a response. 

      To produce a visually compelling image, a photographer needs more than creativity – a photographer needs to have working knowledge of composition, lighting, camera and technical skills and a thorough understanding of the subject. As a student, you will have an opportunity to learn these skills and be challenged to build upon the creativity and proficiencies you already possess.

      Career Portrait

      According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), “Employment of photographers is projected to grow by 13 percent from 2010 to 2020, about as fast as the average for all occupations. […]Employment of self-employed photographers is expected to grow by 15 percent from 2010 to 2020. Demand for wedding and portrait photographers will continue as people continue to get married and need new portraits. In addition, corporations will continue to require the services of commercial photographers to develop compelling advertisements to sell products.”

      The BLS adds, “Job prospects will be best for candidates who are multitalented and possess related skills such as picture editing and capturing digital video.”
