We’re a non-profit school in Portland, Maine offering semester-long intensive programs in documentary writing, radio, photography and multimedia with a focus on powerful and responsible storytelling. We also exhibit documentary work in our gallery and host documentary-related events.
The Professional Certificate program in Photography at Maine Media College is a one-year, intensive, hands-on learning experience for emerging photographers. Students study all facets of photography, working digitally or with traditional darkroom practices. The 30-week program comprises 48 quarter-hour credits including course work in the areas of digital and darkroom craft, vision, history, and fine art or documentary project development. The program is excellent preparation for students seeking admission to graduate programs or for those who want to develop their photography in an immersive and highly challenging environment.
