Graduate Spotlight

Alan Bassett Headshot
My objective was to be completely confident in my ability to deliver consistent and meaningful work that would be respected and sought after in the market place. My Hallmark experience has helped me to clarify my creative vision, draw out my individual strength and to realize my value as a working photographer. My skills & techniques have been greatly refined thereby improving all of my photographic work. The Artist-in-Residence Program and the dynamic faculty at Hallmark Institute of Photography are second to none when it comes to delivering the promise of a new career in photography. You can find your place in the program no matter your age, background, or experience level.

Hallmark Institute of Photography delivered on their promise!
