The Viewpoint Student Program was created to provide students with an educational resource that gives them valuable industry information, feedback, and support in a semi-professional environment.  Viewpoint is offering a program to help high school and college students grow and build their art, meet other students in their chosen field of study who share their interests, and join a thriving organization dedicated to the photographic arts.

Lectures 7:00-8:30 p.m. Currently Available through ZOOM

Next Lecture: March 21 The Art and Beauty of Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) Photography
