The Photography and Digital Imaging program (PHDI) at Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) integrates current technologies in digital photography with an emphasis on traditional skills like composition, design, and lighting.

Throughout the two-year program, the MCTC PHDI faculty expect commitment and passion from their students, and nurture their creativity. The curriculum encourages individual expression through inspiring assignments and personalized instruction. Upon graduation, students leave the program with a professional portfolio and working knowledge of the professional photographic industry.

The students of the 2016 LUMIERE Portfolio Show have spent the last two years dedicated to building their skills and bringing them together to transcend their boundaries. They are committed to realizing their photographic visions, ready to make their mark on the photography scene. It has been exciting to be involved with their growth and successes and to be a part of their lives at MCTC.
