If you’re applying for acceptance into the Photography Department’s BA or BFA programs, you are required to submit a portfolio of 10-15 pieces of your best photographic work completed within the past two years. This work should represent creative personal projects but could also include class assignments. Your subject matter can span a wide range of approaches, including fine art, abstract, documentary, studio, figurative, etc. Select work that reveals your understanding of formal organizational elements, and be sure to show us ideas and work that you are passionate about. We are especially interested in viewing your photographic experiments even if you don’t feel the work is absolutely finished, because seeing your ideas and thoughts will provide insights into your potential future work. If your work wasn’t originally created in a digital form, be sure to convert it to digital so you can upload it to our system.
You’ll submit your portfolio through SlideRoom as part of your online application. Once you’ve uploaded your files to SlideRoom, you’re also welcome to bring your portfolio to an open house and meet with a faculty member to have it reviewed in person, or to schedule a personal portfolio review on another convenient day.
For more information and advice on preparing your portfolio, please contact our enrollment advisors at 1-877-732-5977 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
