Graduate Spotlight

Stephanie Minion Headshot
After I graduated High School I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, 4 and 1/2 years later I came across Hallmark's Website. When I first talked to admissions, I was in love, after my interview I was determined and Hallmark is the BEST decision I have ever made. The instructors are above and beyond what I expected. Always willing to help and always pushing you to improve. If you are passionate about photography and are willing to spend 10 months of your life learning, Hallmark is the perfect place to be. It won't just change your photography, it will change you as a person, and personally its the best change I could have ever asked for.

In Memorium
Mary Ellen Mark
March 20, 1940 - May 25, 2015

It was with great sadness that we learned about the passing of Mary Ellen Mark on May 25, 2015. Mark was a photographer who inspired other photographers, including many Hallmark Alumni to reach her level of excellence. Her unique approach and vision will live on through her distinctive, compassionate photographs.
