The UWG Photography Certification consists of a series of two courses: Photography I and Photography II. The Photography Certificate Program is a non-credit program offered by UWG Continuing Education and is open to the community. All courses are instructed by Steven Broome. Registration will open in Summer 2021 for the Fall 2021 series at UWG Newnan.
Program Content and Structure
The UWG Photography Certificate was restructured in 2019 to increase the classroom instruction time for Photo I & Photo II from 10 to 15 hours each and to remove the editing component / Adobe Photoshop course. The Photography I and Photography II courses consist of 15 hours of classroom instruction and 2 hours of fieldwork for a total of 34 hours for the Certification. Photo I and Photo II must be taken in sequence for completion of the Photography Certificate, thus Photo I is a prerequisite of Photo II.
Fall 2021 Program at UWG Newnan - TBA
Benefits and Learning Outcomes
Participants earning a UWG Continuing Education Photography Certification will be able to maximize the use of their digital cameras in order to produce a “professional” grade photograph suitable for use in brochures, publications and personal display.
Photography is an art form like no other. It captures a particular moment and freezes reality for one precious second. For Steven Broome, photography has been his life’s joy since he got his first camera in the fourth grade. As part of the UWG family, Steven channels his passion into creating stories and memories through photography and other visual technology. Steven has been part of the University of West Georgia family for more than two decades, having received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the university and joining the staff in 1989 and retiring in 2020. He has received several honors, including an APEX Award of Excellence for a photo taken on campus just following September 11, 2001, as well as being part of the team that won a CASE Gold Award for Campaign Publications during the UWG Centennial. As the former Associate Director of Visual Services, Steven supervised a team of skilled photographers and videographers who work hard at showing the story behind UWG and what makes it great. He finds inspiration in the unbridled spirit embodied by the UWG community. Steven collects old cameras, a collection that has grown to include approximately 100 different types. In his words: “these are the tools that allowed regular people to document their own history, and it's that vernacular history that I find very interesting.”
