Film and Photography

Our campus is a photographer's and filmmaker's paradise. With the expansive Gothic architectural details of our buildings and 2,200 acres of woodlands, wetlands and farmlands, opportunities for film and photography are endless. The new O'Brien Arts Center features the state-of-the-art Barbour Photography Suite and a graphic arts lab for film projects; in addition, equipment is available to accommodate the novice and advanced artist.


The Photography course descriptions at St. Andrew's can be found here.

All levels of photography include:

  • A study of historical and contemporary photography complements practical exercise and work in all levels of study.
  • All students taking Photography participate in 3 annual art exhibitions in our own Warner Gallery and play an important role in the preparation for the student exhibitions.
  •  All levels work in a wet black and white lab.

Film Studies

Students in the V or VI year can choose to study, critique, and produce Films in the Film Study and Art Major classes. These classes feature an intense focus on the production design and editing of films as well as an introduction to film analysis and critique. All projects are shot on High-Definition DV cameras and are edited using a state-of-the-art Final Cut Pro computer lab. Final compositing and mixing facilities are available for Art Major projects before they are presented at the Arts Weekend Film Screening.

Over the past four years, several students have chosen to pursue Film beyond St. Andrew's and have been accepted to the prestigious Film & TV program at NYU. St. Andrew's Film Study program prepares students well for such a rigorous university program.
