A Year at Hallmark
Every week brings something new in Hallmark's intensive 10-month program. Retrace the journey of our most recent graduates, the Class of 2011, from orientation to graduation. As you step through this timeline, realize that a given week in 2012 or 2013 will likely be different from the "same" week in 2010 or 2011 — unlike multi-year programs, Hallmark is unfettered in its ability to rapidly adapt to industry changes. We take advantage of that freedom to give every class the most current and relevant instruction possible.
Class of 2011 Arrives — On Wednesday, September 8th members of Hallmark's Class of 2011 arrive to register for classes and begin their 3-day Orientation. Instructors, staff and current students alike share in the anticipation and excitement of welcoming a new group of students and starting them on their journey in photography. Orientation week mornings are packed with information to help students get orientated and prepare for their next ten months, while the afternoon sessions are designed to provide excitement and inspiration through the introduction to some of today's outstanding working professional photographers. Presenting this year will be Gregory Heisler gregoryheisler.com on Wednesday, Gina LeVay ginalevay.com on Thursday and Clay Patrick McBride claypatrickmcbride.com on Friday. Current students will introduce themselves to the new class with a private reception and exhibition of their work at The Gallery at Hallmark.
