Digital Photography – CTE Program of Study

  • Digital Photography – CTE Program of Study (pdf)

    The Digital Photography instructional program prepares the students to capture an image directly with a digital camera, by capturing a frame from a video, and by scanning a conventional photograph and then applying a wide variety of special effects to it with image enhancing software. An integrated approach to teaching and learning is recommended as students develop interpersonal relations, career development skills, Workplace Employability Skills, and technical knowledge and skills. Students completing this program will be prepared to enter the workforce and/or Post-secondary where they will be able to apply the skills necessary to be in Digital Photography while also having a strong portfolio to support their knowledge and skill. The program is designed and delivered as a coherent sequence of school-based and work-based supervised learning. Students learn leadership skills and develop their leadership abilities through participation in the state-recognized Career and Technical Student Organization, SkillsUSA.

    Digital Photography is offered at all five of our Gilbert Public Schools high school campuses: Campo Verde HighDesert Ridge HighGilbert HighHighland High, and Mesquite High.
