Portfolio Review Requirements
Foundations of Photography I
An online exam is the first of a two-step review for Foundations of Photography I. If a student obtains a score on the exam that indicates an understanding of foundational concepts, the student will be provided with a link to upload a digital portfolio. Photography faculty members will then review the student's portfolio and the student will receive feedback within 14 business days.
If you are a student with photography experience, please contact Jenn Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org for access to the exam.
