Course Policies 

        In Advanced Photography, I look first and foremost for effort. Students who complete work, and try their best are the most successful. Each assignment has clearly defined directions, which should also be followed. In doing that, EVERY student should be able to grow as an artist, regardless of where their artistic skills were at the beginning of the course.

Required and Recommended Materials 


        Students who need extra time or assistance may schedule time with me either during B lunch, or after school. If time is needed after school, I ask for 24 hours notice for scheduling purposes.
