Remember how I announced my belief in the power of Utah photography education? As a follow-up, here are some traditional (and online) classroom options for learning to be a better photographer, from newbie to expert.

Salt Lake Community College

Salt Lake Community College offers two variations of photography classes for Salt Lake City photographers. The Continued Education program offers both in-person and online classes. I offer you the link, but warn you the website is pretty crappy so good luck.

SLCC also offers three other options: two certificates and an Associate’s degree in the Visual Arts and Design program with an emphasis on photography. You can find more information here.
