Hallmark Institute of Photography was established over 30 years ago to provide an accelerated academic path to a career in professional photography. Our unique ten-month in-residence program is designed to equip the motivated student with all of the tools that he or she will need to successfully launch a career in the very competitive imaging marketplace. Although many fine photographic schools teach the technical and aesthetic aspects of photography, Hallmark Institute teaches these and much more, including the business management, finance, and marketing skills needed to start or manage a successful photographic business. All aspects of photographic disciplines including commercial, portrait, industrial, aerial, and event imaging are a part of our exciting, fast-paced educational environment. Our professional staff, with their mature and challenging approach to a photographic education, prepares the graduate to compete in this challenging profession. In addition to the production of an outstanding portfolio, students are taught interviewing skills, they create and present a realistic business plan, and design and create their own promotional web site.
Whether you are a high school graduate, career changer or just someone wanting to enter the business of photography, you will find that the Hallmark Institute career building program is one of your best choices to begin or to refine your photographic career.
