We live in a world where photos define moments in our lives.  From SnapChat to Facebook to InstaGram, photography is everywhere.  At Gov's, we challenge students to take their photos to the next level.  Access to high-end photography equipment and time-honored techniques make our photography program stand out among others.

GRADE 9

As part of our freshman Introduction to Fine Arts course, students will spend four weeks shooting their own photos using a wide variety of cameras, while also learning about framing, point of view, tonal separation, and light.

Using the school's photography equipment, students learn both film and digital photography techniques, use of the darkroom, and advanced editing features in Adobe Photoshop.

"When I'm taking photos, it's probably the most therapeutic thing that I could possibly do to destress."

"Never in a million years did I think I would have become a serious artist.  But Gov's gave me that and I'm psyched."
