School Curriculum for Photography
Independent Study or Classroom Based Study
SCPHOTO has been serving schools (both homeschool and public) for over 15 years providing an Online curriculum and resource in basic photography that meets most state standards for content. The site has been used by close to 100 students from as many as 10 different countries per day since its beginning in 1998. Students can be working on independent study with our credentialed teacher or with their own school and teacher. Students are of all ages from 14 to 80.
Often a school will add a photography class to its curriculum with little support for the teacher in how that class might be taught. Textbooks can cost as much as $50 to $160 per student and they offer no interactivity. Searching the web doesn't help create a curriculum plan that has been proven to work either. This web site is a labor of "love" by a retired teacher to help individuals and schools facing that problem find a proven curriculum for their study. This program will take you from the basics into a working knowledege of photography following established curriculum standards and practices. We have an advanced class for students with better equipment and software that are looking for a firm foundation upon which they can grow into a career or hobby. Check our Online Study section for more details on course offerings.
Are you looking for a personalized tutorial style of online course designed to bring your photo skills to a higher level? NEW this year is our FORUM based SIX WEEK class offering training taylored to the needs of a limited class size of 6 students. Our new Moving Beyond Snapshots course has students share their assignment solutions with the class for discussion as well as review by the instructor in a weekly video.
