The NGTC photography program has a well-deserved reputation for excellence. In recent years, students have won bronze, silver, and gold in the SkillsUSA state and national competitions.
Our program motto states, “practical skills for real world jobs”, and our diploma and associate degree programs do just that – prepare you for work and teach everything you need to make it in the real world.
Courses cover the fundamentals of photography and students gain experience in a wide range of photographic specialties including portraiture, lifestyle, commercial, nature, multimedia, and photojournalism.
In addition, students learn essential Photoshop skills, produce a professional portfolio, complete a business plan, and have an introduction to design and marketing.
Our facilities are second to none with over 6,000 sq. ft. of studio space, computer lab, print room, amphitheater, and classrooms. We are equipped with a full range of studio lighting and support Nikon, Canon, and Sony cameras with additional lenses available to loan.
Overall costs, including all books and equipment, are substantially less than almost any other photography program and most students are eligible for the Hope Scholarship or the Hope Grant. You can be sure to leave with a qualification designed to further your career and not a difficult student loan.
NGTC Photography continues to ensure the highest standards of education. Our team of full-time instructors, adjunct instructors, and lab assistants each have professional experience in a broad range of photographic skills including portraiture, commercial, photojournalism, and video production.
Other contributing speakers bring real-world experience and offer a unique opportunity for students to network and explore what it means to be a professional photographer.
