About rccphotoschool

Randolph Community College has worked for 50 years to develop a state-of-the-art, two year photographic curriculum that now attracts students from across the country and the world. Boasting a multi-million dollar, 37,000-square-foot photographic education facility and five full-time faculty/staff and three adjunct instructors, we serve up to 140 students annually. Encompassing the latest digital and multimedia technology, our curriculum builds from a foundation of traditional film and darkroom techniques. Our students enjoy nationwide, hands-on internship opportunities which can lead to careers in a variety of professional disciplines. After completing their foundation year students choose a second year in one of three concentrations areas: Portrait Studio Management, Photojournalism, and Commercial Photography. Our national reputation for excellence and value have been earned by a commitment to the very best in photographic education.

Polaroid Series #1

Chuck Egerton, former department head at RCC photo and instructor for design, history, commercial and view camera, used Polaroids as a way to teach various concepts. We are fortunate to have quite a few of the images Chuck and the students made over the years and will be sharing more of the Polaroid collection in the future.

Nothing says color funk quite as well as an out of date Polaroid.

PHO 135 Product Lighting class Can-A-Palooza 2018 class picks.

RCC photo students were assigned to teams, given a soft drink can and tasked with creating product images in the midday sun using only passive modifiers. The students had no idea that they would be doing this prior to class and there was a limit on both production time and editing.

Photo of the Week

Weekly- Light Painting

Photo by Breanna Winze

This week’s Small Format weekly theme was “Painting With Light.” Students had to do more than wave a flashlight around, but use their small strobes to paint a scene. Breanna Winze painted the forrest with gelled strop pops and then created her Cinderella carriage with a flashlight!
