"Before I took this program, my knowledge of photography was superficial. I just didn't have the environment to learn about lighting before. I was doing a lot of street photography with natural light. After two years, I've learned from industry experts with top-quality equipment."

The Internet and digital photography have radically altered the photographic industry. Thousands of websites, e-books, e-zines and other online publications have joined the hundreds of print publications in North America that are constantly searching for good photography to illustrate their content. In addition, there are growing wedding, portrait and editorial opportunities in print, digital and motion capture formats.
Our graduates work in diverse areas of the industry. There are many photography studios and agencies in Ontario, with most in Toronto. Many graduates set up and operate freelance businesses and studios.
Humber Creative Photography students enter a number of photography competitions each year and have a history of award-winning work.
