Photography: Visual Commercial Art

  • Our Photography program functions as both a Fine Art and CTE pathway.

    For the past decade, our photography courses have been taught on campus by a ROP instructor.

    As of Fall of 2018, we now offer Visual and Commercial Art as a CTE pathway. Students in this pathway are trained for entry-level jobs in photography. Through these courses, our students learn camera controls, Adobe Lightroom, digital printing, studio lighting, and fine art inkjet printing to name a few. An additional advantage of this program is that students in their third year of this pathway can take AP Studio Art 2D Design and receive Advanced Placement credit for their photography.

    This esteemed program consistently wins awards in numerous photography contests, including:

    • Art Reach at the Pomona Fairplex
    • Citrus College High School Photography Competition
    • Mt. San Antonio College High School Photography Exhibition
    • LACOE VAPA Student Art Contest
    • Congressional Art Show
    • Reflections PTA
    • Young Reporters for the Environment

    An added incentive for this program is that Northview Photo students earn college credit through Articulation Agreements with the Mt. SAC Photography Department.
