The photo program maintains two 400 sq. foot lighting studios with the flexibility to open them into one large space for extensive shoots. The studio has a full range of lighting equipment, backdrops, and accessories including Speedotron and Novatron Strobe Kits and ARRI and Lowel Omni Continuous Light Kits.
The gallery serves as the heart of the Sabinal Building, where students hang in between classes and where lectures and exhibitions take place throughout the year. Students have opportunities through class projects and as part of the Middle Grey Photo Club to hang work in the gallery and once a year The Contemporary at Blue Star curates an exhibition of work from their roster of international artists.
